COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle. Filtered, then bottled with sugar and yeast.
Ingredients: Water, Barley malt, Hops, Yeast.
This scintillating golden ale boasts a rich, fruity, and fresh aroma. And a light malty and sweet taste. It has a soft bitterness with a friendly aftertaste. A well-balanced blend of complexity and simplicity. La Trappe Blond continues to ferment in the bottle.

tbonde (181) - DENMARK - MAY 1, 2015
33 cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@approx 11 degrees C. Pours clear yellow with large white head with OK retention, ending in little white clots. Citrus, hay and bread aroma with a taste of malt, coriander (?), yeast and orange. Slightly overcarbonated and on the sweet side with at somewhat light texture for a blonde, though not directly watery. Gets better as the carbonation subsides and has none of the off tastes which sometimes disturbes the experience with blondes. Sweet, malty aftertaste. Clearly better than the popular macro blondes, but not interesting enough to warrant greatness.

SlackerMads (2102) - DENMARK - APR 23, 2015
Bottle. Clear yellow with a medium sized frothy white head. Sweet oranges, cloves and honey in the nose. Flavour has sugared orange, honey, peach, cloves, strawberries, sweet pear, light hay. Light bodied, thin texture, fizzy carbonation, watery and fizzy finish with lingering fruity notes. Has some sweetness that is uplifted by the carbonation and light bitterness. Drinks ok with no alcohol showing, and overall it is fine for an inexpensive supermarket beer. I would like it better if it wasn’t so fizzy and watery.

thellgren (463) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2015
0.33 bottle in Oak Barrel, Helsinki-Vantaa airport. Dark yellow colour, almost no head. Nice taste of yests, but the taste of alcohol comes through a bit too much for my taste. A bit water too, but I think this was served too cold.
