Belgian light style, very foamy top (nitrogen?), bit sparkling wine on the nose and a light palate, reminds Tripel Karmeliet but nowhere near as potent.

De minste van de gauloise-bieren dat ik geprobeerd heb. Een typisch blond bier waar weinig smaak aan zit.

zvsn (536) - ISRAEL - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange-golden with a decent creamy head and good lacing. Sweet overripe fruits, caramel, yeasty and a bit spicy aroma. Moderate sweet, fruity and bready malts flavors, sour (wheat?) and yeasty aftertaste. Medium-bodied, high carbonation, dry finish. Not very flavorful, but drinkable.

VDuquerroux (263) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear golden orange yellow beer with a big white head. Big bubbles. Medium persistence. Aroma of herbs, metallic, acid, caramel, light fruit. Dry medium herbal bitter. Light body, thin texture, good carbonation, bitter finish. Overall, OK beer : blond bright bitter.

Vignale (2031) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2014
Flaska från bier-deluxe. Gyllenfärgad, klar, högt vitt skum. En standard blond med estriga fruktsmaker, jäst, lite socker och aningen humle och kryddor. Eftersmaken har en lätt syrlig stramhet och lite beska som jag gillar. Helt okej.

Prachtig uiterlijk, kleur en schuim presenteren mooi. Frisse smaak, fijne afdronk. Perfect aperitief

Botella de 75 cl De el c. Ingles. Tomada por ultima vez en agosto de 2008 (fecha de cons pref para 27-08-2009). Cuerpo medio con 6.3 vol fácil de beber. Normal y sin grandes sorpresas dentro del mundo belga.

ABT_S54 (137) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
33cl bottle served in a Duvel glass. Pours a highly carbonated blonde colour with a generous white head which last well. Aroma is nicely spiced and fruity. The taste following up the aroma with more of the same in a nicely balanced package. Overall one of the nicer examples of a Belgian blonde I have tried and seemingly underrated.
