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.

Theydon_Bois (14315) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Tap at Eulogy Tavern, Philly - as Eulogy Busty Blonde, 30/11/13. Had presumed this was a re-badge but no free Wifi to check. Had this before but new for the rate so job done ! Lightly hazed golden with a moderate white covering. Nose is Belgian yeast esters, citric fruit, caramel, spice, straw, farmyard, light brett notes. Taste comprises citric dipped straw, bitter orange, yeast esters, caramel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet and lightly tarte fruit notes in the finish with a pinch of spice. Solid Belgian affair.

ruigo (1800) - PORTUGAL - NOV 26, 2013
Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a cloudy golden yellow with floating particles and a light fluffy white head. Aroma is yeasty, citrus and spicy. Medium carbonation and medium to light body. Flavour is a mix of sweet notes and bitterness. Overall, a refreshing and nice beer.

Moravius (906) - Beijing, CHINA - NOV 8, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 75 cl bottle (as "La Binchoise Blonde"). - Strong golden yellow, clear but with floaties. Strong carbonation. Perfumed, sweet aroma. Starts very fruity, sweet and yeasty, with notes of lemon, white grapes, and dextrose, lightly spiced with coriander. Gets smoother and more interesting when warmer. Light citrussy hop notes and a pleasant tartness save this beer from being little more than a fizzy lemonade. Finish is light, fruity and a bit sour. - Not too bad, refreshing blonde.

Silvan7 (926) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 27, 2013
bottle from supermarket. colore giallo paglierino carico, velata. schiuma bianca abbastanza fine. profumo non molto intenso. fruttato, agrumato soprattutto, con lievito belga appena accennato, e note luppolate solo sottili. profumo poco persistente. gusto agrumato, si avverte il coriandolo. rimanda alle blanche, ma non è più complessa, più acida, con gusto di lievito belga. abbastanza corposa, armonica ed equilibrata

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 Blonde trouble. Forte effervescence de visu, moyenne-faible au palais, col fin mais persistant. Plutôt bien maltée, miel et fruits assez présents sans être envahissants, petite amertume sur la fin.

Jokk (46) - Odessa, UKRAINE - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle 0,3, pured in a tulip. Cloudy yellow-golden with floaties. Puffy off-white head disappears quickly. Intriguing aroma: orange, chinese parsley, bready malts, a bit peppery and phenolic ofc. Unbalanced taste between spicy sweetness grassy bitterness. Fizzy carbonation, light bodied, crispy. Deep warm finish slowly comes down into throat.

Holmen1 (3924) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2013
Flaske på hotellrommet i Brussel, etter en nydelig dag i Ghent: flott hvitt skum som belgierne er så gode til, lys farge med litt bunnfall. Kald og god rett fra kioskens kjøleskap, en herlig, lett syrlig og velsmakende tross liten bitterhet. En god opptakt til resten av kvelden!

corkyrory66 (1010) - BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2013
Bière blonde, haute fermentation, haute qualité, de 6,2 % abv. Réalisation artisanale. Couleur dorée brillante assez claire. Clarté assez vite légèrement voilée si on ne limite pas le versage. Bulles très nombreuses, vives, partout dans le verre. Mousse blanche à petits flocons, et jolie partie bien crémeuse. Arômes un peu citronnés, avec du blé, de l’olive verte, du pain blanc, une pointe de poivre et muscade. 1ère bouche très soyeuse avec une très belle prise sur les céréales, pleine, riche. Arrière-bouche avec une amertume bien présente mais très soft. 2ème bouche bien soyeuse, très agréable, soft mais pleine. Bien maltée, de même que l’arrière-bouche. 3ème bouche où l’amertume passe un peu plus en avant, fine, agréable, prenante. Arrière-bouche bien fraîche, avec quelques notes de pomme blanche et rouge. Longueur avec de très beaux enchaînements sans accroc, sans fausse note. Levure douce, fine, parfaite pour le style de bière. Alcool bien pour garder la fraîcheur et la douceur de cette bière. Finale avec de très belles nuances. Conclusion : une bière vraiment très bien réalisée, parfaite pour son genre. Pas de fausse note, que de belles choses.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - APR 19, 2013
Zitronenwasser trüb, mittlere Schaumbildung. Sehr hefiges Aroma, etwas citrus. Dünner, ja fast wässriger Antrunk trotz der 6,2% Alkohol! Hefiger, zitroniger Geschmack. Wahrlich ein langweiliges und unterdurchschnittliches Blonde, aber auch als Wit hat dieses Gebräu nichts zu bieten!
