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.

Bottle at Thalys train, march 07. Clear, shinny golden color with an ok head and effervescent carbonatation. Aroma is a bit restrianed with some yeasty and coriander notes. Yeasty flavor, with a hint of grassy hops, balanced. Medium to light MF, effervescent and short dry ending. Regular belgian ale.

Maria (10194) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2007
Light golden with a huge head. The aroma is slightly perfumed, just like the flavour, that is typical for a blond with it’s sweetness and citrussy finish. But it’s an average and a bit ordinary blonde.

labologist (56) - Disley, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2007
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 (1767) - 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.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 3, 2007
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 (1855) - 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.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - DEC 23, 2006
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.
