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.

BlackHaddock (4137) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
Brown 33cl bottle, best before 24 May 2011, drank from a Duvel glass on 15 Mar 2011. No sediment appeared to leave the bottle but the beer looked a misty/cloudy/moody dull orange colour, rather than the clearer, brighter body I was expecting: a weak wispy covering sat on top of the brew. Sweet aromas of sugar cane candy and childrens sweets in general. Tried to find some beery smells, but failed. The taste is a bitter sweet yeasty mix, the alcohol content very evident from the start. Strange flavours and mouthfeel to be honest, too sweet for me, and I like the sweeter Belgian brews normally. Pleasant enough, but the heavy sweet overtones in all aspects were just too strong for my tastebuds.

pilgrimoutlaw (796) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2012
On tap at Eulogy’s. This beer was pretty awful, I can’t understand how others have given it high ratings. Pours murky golden blond with foamy white head. Honey, hay, floral cloves. Moderately sweet and a bit sour. Tastes like water downed Tang.

Bottle [330ml] shared with garthicus & HogTownHarry -- c/o HogTownHarry. Dec. 13, 2011. Pours a cloudy copper-gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma of honey, yeast, perfumy notes, grain, grassy hops and some citrus. Flavour’s the same, perfumy along with yeast, honey, lemon and light grassy hops. Average bodied. Nothing bad about it, just mediocre.
