COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You will no doubt enjoy this versatile, yet distinct Belgian Blonde Ale. Fermented with yeast from the Abbeys of Belgium, it possesses a strong malt foundation with a distinct Belgian fruitiness and the right amount of hops adding to its flavor and aroma. So go on – see how the Blonde side lives!

12oz bottle from yobdoog, thanks Trevor. Poured a thick hazy orange/amber with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma/flavor of Belgian yeast, dough, honey, fruity esters, slight nut shell. Nice fuller body with average carbonation and an almost milky feel. Decent.

nimbleprop (5017) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 10, 2014
12oz bottle pours a hazy gold with some sudsy white head. Nose is interesting, Belgiany esters, stone fruit, a little candy, a little tea like. Flavor is also a bit odd, some Dubbel notes, clove and raisin mostly, then a bit more traditional candy sweetness, followed by some earthy kombucha notes, some peach too, even a little plum. Creamy, tannic finish.

beerbill (3464) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Draught. Pours a lightly hazed golden amber with a thin linen white head that lasted through the first two sips and left very little lace. Light aroma of fruity Belgian yeast and not much else. The flavor is malt with mildly fruity Belgian yeast followed by some mild hops bitterness. A bit of sweetness to the flavor as well. Easy drinker.

puboflyons (2176) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 3, 2014
From the 355 ml. bottle. Slightly cloudy amber pour with a lingering cream colored head. The aroma is roasted malts, spice, pear, and a low hop character. The body is medium. The nutmeg and herbal quality kicks in well in the taste along with the roasted malts and modest hop finish.

Slipstream (2042) - USA - OCT 3, 2013
Interesting label, made from an unusual, lightly dimpled paper stock. Golden brown pour. Lightly fruity and malty aroma with a little pineapple. Maca root adds a little South American tropical taste. Sweet bread, dates, and prunes, with hops pushed to the side. A nice brew with unique characteristics.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Tim. Pours a rusty orange caramel with a medium off white head. Aroma of Belgian fruit and yeast, sweet malt and mild candied sugar. Taste is much the same as the aroma.
