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.

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Pours a clouded blond with a small white head. Nose is flowery with spice, fruit, and light hop character. Definite citrus and spice on the tongue. Seemingly like a wit beer. Light spice as well on the tongue. Some hop bitterness and carbonation "bite" on the palate. Finishes rather well with some leftover spice and orange. Good beer.

Hazy honey golden color with a fluffy white head. Nice aromas of flowers, lemons, corriander, orange, and light bread dough. Initial sip revealed a thin rather boring brew (served way to cold). I wait... Gains some citrus and cobweb yeast flavors. Malt lingers and efferesence refreshes. Still seems thin and a bit watery. Great aroma, Some very good flavors, palates off and looks good. Not a bad effort. Much like a wit and very refreshing.

Dayton, OH AleFest:The head was small sized, white, fine sized bubbles that mostly diminished.The body was cloudy and uncarbonated.This beer's hue was pale yellow and the nose was lightly malty, hoppy and also of banana.The flavor in my opinion was sour and sweet.This beer's mouthfeel was smooth, thin, watery and light bodied.There was only a fair amount of lacing on the sides of my glass.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 24, 2003
This brew poured a small head of finely sized off-white mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a hazy yellow colored uncarbonated body. It had a floral aroma and a smooth mouthfeel from start to finish. Its flavor contained notes of fruit and coriander.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2003
This Belgian blond ale pours a hazy, bubbly, golden color with a medium sized, lingering, rocky white head. The aroma is fruity and yeasty with hints of orange, pear, apricot, and peach. It has a medium body with lively carbonation and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is very fruity and citrusy with lots of orange and yeast hints. The finish is slightly dry but with a nice lingering fruitiness and a touch of malt sweetness. A very refreshing and enjoyable ale.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2003
Best until september '01. Cloudy with only a slight head. Sherry aroma with malt and hazlenuts. Sweetish, rather vinous flavor with grape juice and vanilla. Medium bodied, the texture is staring to get thinner. Nice, fairly complex beer.
