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.

mkobes (2141) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2004
Cloudy yellow with a nice fluffy white head. Full bodied beer. Smooth. Very malty. A little yeast. Pretty good beer.

Ungstrup (29846) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 3, 2004
The aroma is sweet with notes of fruit, flowers, and corriander. The color is hazy orange and it has a small disappearing head. The flavor is sweet with notes of honey, flowers, and corriander. An OK Blonde.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2004
Cloudy yellow with a foamy white head. You can smell the orange peel. A little yeast. Smooth and full bodied. Fizzy. Malty. Not a bad drinking light Belgian.

LordHedgehog (144) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Very effervescent, with a nice floral/hoppy nose. Subtle fruitiness, masked by a yeasty taste and underlying crispness. Decent, but not a show-off Belgian.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2004
Hazy golden coloured. Very yeasty. Thin and watery. A very boring Belgian blond.

SlimJimDrinker (115) - Nørrebronx, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2004
Lactic, fruity aroma... Nice head to this one... But nothing that impresses me to much...

SilkTork (5275) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2004
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.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2004
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 (5336) - 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.
