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.

Bottle sampled. Pours orange/golden with a small wjite head. Aroma of fruit, belgian yeast and spices. The flavor is slightly sweet fruit, spices, and a mild bitter finish. Not a bad brew.

mazfln (116) - Florianópolis, BRAZIL - MAY 28, 2007
Pale, medium head. Aroma of malt, yeast, just a little sweet. Flavour is subtile: fruity, sweet, malt, yeast. It would be a nice session beer, but its flavour should be a little more noticeable.

bobaidan (524) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Pours golden with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet malt with some fruit and grass notes. Flavor is sweet with bread like yeast and fruit (apricot ?) flavors. Finish is bitter hops, but not in a bad way.

Large bottle - corked. Healthy cloudy amber colour, hoppy and mown grass aroma, lasting head albiet small, sticky (my new favorite word!) taste of candy and malt, in fact, very malty. An enjoyable brew

MPA (860) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 26, 2007
Bottle. Rated on my cellphone behind the back of a bunch of non-rating friends hence this poor rating (note to self: re-rate this one more thoroughly)

Thank you to boboski to directing me to this listing, I somehow could not find it on my own, even though I’ve been a member of this site for 6.5 years, this was a very average Belgian ale, golden color with a thick white head, nice lacing around the glass, but very average characteristics, nice subtle hop flavor & aroma with notes of honey & yeast, but a very indifferent beer

thewolf (11387) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle. A pretty golden colour with a thin milky white film head. Aroma is sweet and very fruity, mostly apricot and oranges. Flavour has a surprisingly sour edge, dominated by lots of oranges.
