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.

Syfher (328) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; room-temperature. Drinked with mates. We’re in front of a good belgian blond ale, worth tryin. Blond colour with a beautiful thick while fuzzy head. The aroma is yeast and malt. Taste is usual, light notes of citrus and rye. The aftertaste is also citrus, lighter.

Bottle. Pours in clear pale hazy body with low head. Aroma has yeasty character upfront, pretty clean, high touch of fruit hopiness. Taste has medium wheat like sweeetness upfront, low bitterness. Body is full, high soft carbonation.

nybol (1460) - DENMARK - MAR 13, 2016
Lys ale, lys guld farve, lidt uklar. Aromatiserede med aromatisk humle, koriander og appelsinskal. Smager mest af sæbe efter min mening.....

Robe blonde, mousse peu abondante. Nez houblon frais, citron, écorce d’agrumes, foin. Bouche assez fruitée, fine bulle, finale souple et fraîche à défaut d’être longue. Une bière de soif.
