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.

TET (2112) - FINLAND - SEP 9, 2007
Beige beer with quite large white head. Aroma is slightly sweet but too light. Flavor is quite sofisticated but too light. This is too light for being good trappist.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - SEP 2, 2007
Appearance: amber orange color. Medium head, white color, some consistent and persistent. Aroma: pale malty; fruitiness some citric, similar to grapefruits and orange; sweet-fruity like peaches and tangerines. Hoppy some herbal and highly aromatic. Spicy like coriander and soft clove Flavor: soft malty and few persistent. Light to medium dryness hoppy, with herbal-medicinal touch, persistent and resinous. Finish with reminiscences of peel orange (both sourness and dryness), stone of peaches and grapefruits. Some liquory. Spicy like coriander and clove. Palate: medium body, silky texture. High carbonation, but some artificial. Nice hoppy like a good triple, not very complex.

clear dark yellow, scant head, sweet malt aroma, good body, light sweet malt flavor, hint of bitterness in the finish that eventually turns into spices, would not have guessed it to be a Belgian style

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 14, 2007
Bottle, was very lively, pouring a hazy gold with a filmy white head. A strong yeast aroma with lots of fruit and just a touch of spice. Quite a creamy palate, more spice in the flavour and some orange fruit.

kapusta (88) - Dover, Delaware, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Had this as Koningshoeven Blond, not La Trappe. This pours a light orange color with a white head. The tast is malty sweet, with hints of clove and yeast. I also tasted a cotton candy orange/citrus flavor. Better than I expected for a single Trappist ale, and stronger than I would have thought.

argo0 (12119) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 26, 2007
(750ml bottle) Lightly hazed amber body with medium off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, very fruity (peach, orange, nectarine, cantaloupe), some alcohol, almond. Taste is moderately sweet, orange, raisin, some alcohol, faint cherry, soap. Creamy medium-full body, some wateriness. Too much alcohol for such a mellow ABV.
