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.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2005
La Binchoise pours a clouded dark yellow color and makes a thin offwhite head. Smells like biscuits and is very yeasty, has a strong whit-like quality. Mild citrus flavor, like a sweet-lemon, yeasty, bready, peppery spice. Light to medium palate, finishes rather dry. This is pretty good, its not my favorite Belgian pale by any means, it feels more like a whit in my opinion.

330ml bottle. Golden orange in colour with a lasting white head, good lacing. Aroma is of yeast, lightly sweet, some floral hops, some light spice and faint citrus. Flavour is a little malty, some coriander, some oranges, floral, quite dusty. Yeasty mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. FInishes with a little bit of spice and lots of mustiness. Not the most enjoyable for sure.

Alengrin (2815) - BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2014
Ordinary blonde, cloudy with creamy head; malty and fruity, orange, peach, apple, thirst-quenching but thin finish, not bad but nothing special and rather forgettable.
