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.

Shaney (2427) - 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!

Lagerboy (1295) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2013
La Binchoise Blonde 6.2% 33cl bottle. Clear light golden yellow, creamy white cap settles and lasts. Light yeasty citrus malty aroma and taste, clean and crisp, lightly spiced. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Finishes dry and lightly bitter. Good starter Belgian ale for adventerous lagerboys. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Yellow blond colour, nice white foam. Nothing outstanding, bitter and dry with a metalic taste and too much carbonation.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2013
Bouteille 330ml, courtoisie d’un contact de Victoria, BC. De couleur dorée-foncée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes et zeste, marmelade, notes de poires et de pêches), léger de sucre bonbon et d’épices (coriandre, notes de poivre) avec des notes de miel et de houblon floral, citrique et herbeux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-élevé ainsiqu’une texture légèrement crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées aux faibles notes acides (agrumes et zestes, surtout de lime, notes de poires - les agrumes durent longtemps en bouche) avec un léger goût épicé (coriandre, traces de clou de girofle) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de grains et de sucre bonbon avec des notes de miel puis en finale, l’on retrouve une légère-moyenne amertume de houblon floral sec et herbeux avec des petites notes citriques. Post-goût moyen et légèrement sec, léger-moyen amer de houblon floral et herbeux avec un goût de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes).

sebletitje (6859) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2012
33cl bottle, BB 10/2013.Dorée claire, col épais blanc. Arôme est doux et fleuri, pointe d’épices et écorce d’orange. Sucre résiduel, malt tirant vers le cara-pils léger. Palais est sucré, levure, amertume, houblon nobles, pale cara, munich, pointe d’épices. Bonne effervescence, fini gardant ce côté épice. Pas mauvaise, mais reste typique pour ce profile belge.
