Pours a cloudy yellow golden with medium to large white head that sticks. Malty and yeasty smell at first. Hidden hops. Fresh and crisp taste, mildly sweet. I get oranges and banana in there blended with the malt nicely. Thin to medium bodied mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Yeah, really like this. Better then expected. I will surely have this one again.

Wonderfully fruity blonde with hefty maltyness and a nice subtle bitterness. Ample bottom with sticky foam that sticks to the glass.

Parallel taste with La Trappe Quadrupel. Upon pouring, the white “open” bubbly foam filled the 20cm tall glass to the rim and retained well before quickly diminishing to leave poor lacing. Visually unappealing. It produced a clear pale golden yellow coloured liquid that was well carbonated with lots of small bubbles. Aroma initially strongly of unpleasant yeast with some musty grain and a trace of spices/cloves. Taste similar to aroma but is more appealing as the beer warms and gives strong cloves and some sweetness followed by a mild bitterness. Light body. Long spicy/cloves finish. Worth trying.

Continuing the La Trappe tasting. Blond was fine. A bit too hot for its strength. Probably least favorite of the range. Girlfriend did not like this one.

On tap, very pleasant. Head disappears quickly. Tastes a bit like Leffe at first, but the aftertaste is much longer and not as sticky. Good balance between sweet and bitter there.

In glass it pours a dark yellow beer with a small and persistent foam head. The aroma reveals some malt, caramel, floral and ginger notes. When is tasted the malt flavor is evident, and the hops are just perceived

Bottle, color is golden, mostly clear but little hazy, fizzy. Average head, white and creamy, mostly lasting. Aroma: malty, dark bread, caramel, little alcohol. Taste is moderate sweet with a short lasting light bitter finish. Lively carbonation, creamy texture, light alcoholic finish. Overall quite a decent blond beer.
