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.

Bottle Conditioned. Pale yellow colour. Nice orange flower aroma. Mild flavoured with a little zingy carbonation. Pleasant, but nothing outstanding.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Full of lemon tangyness, peppery spices, sweet pears, oranges and peaches. A nice amount of hops in there at places. Smells and tastes like it was just bottled yesterday.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle: Spice in the front, spice in the rear. WOW! By the aroma I would swear this is Witbier (my fav style), albeit a bit light for the style. Bottle pours a hazy orangish/yellow color with minimal white head. Definate orangish aroma that stays through the initial taste and finish. Not as spiced as a Wit, but good otherwise. I wish more Belgian Blondes were like this one. Me Likeeee...

TheBeerGod (5179) - 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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2003
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.

butt loads of grainy hops in the aroma and a LOT of citrus (about 99% lemon) in the flavor. color and head are typical hazy belgian golden. quite a bit of coriander in the finish. i was pleasantly surprised at the hops in this one.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2003
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 (4925) - 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.
