COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Also known as La Binchoise Blonde with a 6.2% abv. Available with two labels - Blonde in Wallonia and Fakir in Flanders and Canada. Though it is also relabelled as La Molagnarde Blonde. This is a particularly good blonde beer with lots of strong, clean citric hop character throughout. The orange peel that is included amongst the ingredients tends to only come through in the nose. We find this beer is great when served straight from the fridge as a little of the freshness is lost as it warms up.

77ships (5561) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2015
330 ml. bottle. Purchased @ De Hopduvel. Clear sparkling golden, fizzy, egg-white head. Nose is rather sweet, yeasty, tad milky, touch yoghurt, spices, sweetish, tad fake lemon, a bit too yoghurt-like. Taste is quite mainstream, soapy, not very expressive, tad sweetener sweetish, some artificial lemon, light wheat, touch washing powder, white sugar, far from expressive or overly interesting, sweet mellow lemonade, light ginger, sweetish lemon, sugar, a small touch too soap / washingpowder,… It drinks very easily with nothing objection,… Overall quite a solid background beer I suppose. It is a bit like a mellow, enjoyable, refreshing lemonade in a way, maybe the strong artificial lemon & sugar notes give me that impression. Fine carbonation, light wheat-like touch. I sort of liked it.

kraddel (4593) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - APR 7, 2015
bottle. When the brewer tells you to drink the beer really cold, you should fear for it to give you a less-prefered taste.... But OK, here we go , Ill play along. Served straight from the fridge. Pours rather clear blond, much visual sparkling . Ok white head declines almost instantly to a steady layer of white foams. Smell is mildly bitter and has some yeast. Taste is bitter , some fruity ( intense ) yeastprofile. Fresh from the bitterness, as well as an overripe-fruity taste profile. High carbo, light mouthfeel. Hey , all and all , it aint to bad. Im actually surprised by that

radiomgb (2521) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2014
330ml bottle. Golden orange in colour with a lasting white head, good lacing. Aroma is of yeast, lightly sweet, some floral hops, some light spice and faint citrus. Flavour is a little malty, some coriander, some oranges, floral, quite dusty. Yeasty mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. FInishes with a little bit of spice and lots of mustiness. Not the most enjoyable for sure.
