Ochre coloured top fermented Abbey Beer with an abv of 6.7%. The use of Gatinais barley combined with carefully selected hops creates a perfectly balanced, relatively light tasting beer with a fruity malty taste.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2004 Bottle. Golden w. nice head. Found this pretty complex - especially the aroma: sweet, vanilla, youghurt, little wheaty w. banana and acidity, even some light lambic-barnyard tones. Nice blonde.

Gold beer, white head. A little disappointing taste. Tastes almost like pilsener with more alcohol.

Appearence was not that impressive, but aroma and flavor was both very smooth with the malt standing out.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2004
Very inviting looking: deep gold, clear with a constant stream of bubbles, topped with a medium fluffy head and thick sheets of lacing. Malty, summer fruit aroma. Smooth malts down the middle - almost like honey. Edges are sweet then turning warmly bitter at the finish. Delicious!

I was expecting a lot out of this beer and it just about lived up to my expectations. Pours a light yellow color with a moderate head and leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma is not too strong, but it has a spicy and wheaty feel. The flavor is very smooth and has hints of pepper and a strong wheat character. I enjoyed this beer.

Dredd (684) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2004
Great if not fantastic blonde. This has a really nice upfront flavour, but it washes away very quickly witha slight cidery taste.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Dark straw color with a tall big bubbled, yellow hued, white head. Clover honey aroma with undertones of yeast and citric zest. Initial pale malt flavor, almost pilsner like. Dry grain and light alcohol follows. A heavier sweetness in the finish. Not anything special.

Golden color. Light sensations, light tartness, just some simple malt; wood. Poor.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2003
A pretty OK blonde abbey beer, for a mass produced commercial product, with yeast, fruit and a whopping hit of alcohol, but a little sweet on the finish for my taste. Bottle. Incidentally, seems to be bottled at various strengths - I have seen it in the UK at 7% and in Belgium at 6%

Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - NOV 22, 2003
Bottled. Golden body, clear and sparkling carbonation. Thick white head, disappears slowly, glass sticking. Aroma is sweet, fruity (weak banana?), citrussy, muscat grape. Weak alchol note, low freshness. Taste is sweet, white candy sugar, candy orange peel, weak hop notes, light bitter. Thin body, watery texture, moderate alcoholic feel.
