Blond, bright and sparkling with a fine and creamy head. Deliciously fragrant thanks to a slight hint of fine hops. Delicate flavour, mellow, perfect as aperitif.

75cl Bottle. A golden coloured sweet tasting blonde, with a hint of spice on the nose, and a sweet finish. Not as good as the Amber.

Muggus69 (1685) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2007
Slightly chilled 330ml bottle. Ripe banana on the nose straight away, seems to have a citrus sourness about it, bit of wheat and bread, with a suggestion of spice. Hazy gold with modest head and lace for a Belgian ale. Creamy texture, quite effervescent. Not a vast amount of flavour as one generally expects from this style, bit of bready yeast, sweet notes of banana and spice. Almost like a hefeweizen with subdued yeasty flavours. Easy drinking for its strength.

Bottle. Hazy golden colour with an average head. Sweet malty aroma with some wheat. The flavour has a nice maltiness, some sweetness and a little hoppiness. Little bitter finish.

Stew41 (1821) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2006
I haven’t been massively impressed with the label in the past but this sample showed well. Medium yellow gold in colour, thin but persistent head and noticeable floaties. Good nose, elegant yet possesses well defined banana and clove aromas. Slightly bigger flavours in the mouth than the bouquet would suggest; liquored spices and banana, a hint of chilli (perhaps?) and some bitterness to finish. Fizz a touch on the low side.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2006
The least appealing of the ’La Gauloise’ beers. Hazy golden with a large white head. Yeast and spice aroma. Sweet taste, slightly citric, with lots of yeast at the back, but the overall impression is watery and disappointing.

Golden and clear, looks like a lager when poured, but tastes a little like a witbier/weisse. Ok, but not really my cup of tea.

scotty (1107) - SCOTLAND - DEC 17, 2006
Good clear golden colour, only a slight haze. Head, while not thick, did last a wee while. Nose is a nice mix of malt and citrus fruit. Smooth and well balanced with a hint of citrus acidity. A good beer, not my favourite blonde tho! Tesco 750ml.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2006
Golden slightly clouded hue with a decent white foamy head. Orange yeast and malty nose which follows though to the taste which has some spicey notes with a long citrussy after taste. The bubbles are quite lively for a beer of this type however this remains one of the best beers of this type that I have tasted for a while.

Grovlam (4187) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2006
Can. Yellow colour with a cloudy and sparkling look. Initial appearance of head was huge white coloured, which fully lasted. Left some excellent lacing on the glass. Aroma was very yeasty, spice, citrus, flowers, grass and coriander. Some malt comes into play with light notes of grain and hints of soft bread. Flavour is medium sweet. Medium bodied. Carbonation was lively. Sweet and soft like finish. Excellent Blonde Ale I thought.

berkshirejohn (5396) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2006
750 ml bottle (Tesco). Clear straw colour and very carbonated, lots of yeast in the bottle, but fortunately this was well settled. The frothy white head lasted well. The taste was typically blonde with obvious alcohol and a sweet aftertaste.
