Scottrf (105) - Bedfordshire, - FEB 23, 2012
Clear brown amber, lasting head. Fruity champagne like aroma, banana. Sharp, clean, alcohol taste. Thin, and fizzy. Alcohol is a bit overpowering, spoils it.

tom10101 (2920) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Clear golden with a medium slowly diminishing white head and good lacing. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, floral notes, light spiciness and candi sugar. Taste is similar with yeast, floral/grassy notes, light spiciness and light acidity. Medium body. A tad watery at times. Medium carbonation. Mild fruity finish. Not very tasty. Boring Belgian Ale with a lack of body. Not horrible, just not interesting.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
300ml bottle served in a its own chalice. A: Pours a nice clear golden yellow color forming a medium bubbled and bit soapy white head. Medium ro low retention and some thin lingering lacings left in the glass S: Sweet grains, honey and fruits. A bit spicy too. Bready and biscuity Belgian style yeasts T: Sweet upfront. Strong notes of honey, sweet malts and fruits. On overall, a smooth and light sweet body. A bit drier than Leffe Blond, for example. Light bitter hoppy finish M: Medium body and carbonation. Molasses. Grainy bittersweet aftertaste O: Medium drinkability. Strong Belgium character. Not bad [ BA Review @ 6/3/2010 ]

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Smells of fresh harvest, beautifully clear amber in colour. Classical light Belgian in taste, with much hay and rock candy. Vinous mouth feel, powerful in aftertaste.

Dobry BlondBeer ale nie zniewalający. Ładna butelka wskazywałaby że w środku jest równie ciekawie, ale nie do końca było. Wrażenie ogólne - przyzwoicie.

gorkogrlo (151) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle 0.33. Pours small white head, without lacing. Aroma and flavor profile is pretty much like leffe blond. Leffe blond has higher alcohol taste and has fuller body, as I remember, maybe I am wrong but they are pretty much the same.

Cool_Bond (1496) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2014
Aromas of yeast and citrus. Very metallic taste with yeast and light hops. Weak bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth for a moment. The metallic taste comes not from affecting my grades. That is not at all good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Fashawn (117) - Montesarchio, ITALY - OCT 2, 2014
Birra bionda con una schiuma discreta ma duratura. Non è più un birrificio indipendente. Sentori di malto, lievemente floreali. In bocca miele d’acacia, poca frutta, un po’ d’alcool. Una birra semplice, onestamente.

MonsterMagnet (259) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle, pours golden with a white head. Aroma: floral, grass, biscuit, metallic. Taste: grass, white grapes, overripe sweet apples, biscuits. Light - medium sweet and bitter, light sour. Somewhat soapy finish. Unremarkable and artificial.

slowrunner77 (5977) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
fruity grassy flavors and aroma tempered with a slightly spicy but light yeast character. body slightly over carbonated but not distractingly so. overall a nice beer, especially for a belgian blonde which are typically one rung down on the food chain for me."
