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.

(cleaning out my beer bottle collection as pictured in my profile and utilizing ratebeer.com) As I recall, this was a tasty blonde with a fruity and hoppy balance.

Had this as one of the four 750mls in the fridge, the other being the dubbel, triple and quad. I figured this would have some bite, but was surprised by the fruits, of pear and apple that permeated this. This didn’t quite make methodone orange, but it was far too orange tinged for me to see it as a pure blond. Like some ratings before, it sneaks up on you with the strength, and give you a whallop if you go into to quickly. I wasn’t too happy with the mouthfeel (since it came across oily), but the nose and taste had me trying to figure it out for some time. Generally not bad, but a little watered down and lacking tongue punch for me to call it really "great" or anything. (Bottle Pour 3/28/2008)

UPDATED: APR 26, 2008 33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours a golden color with very little head. I’d say it’s more amber than blonde, but that’s nitpicking. The flavor tastes of sweet malts. It also has a very short, almost non-existant aftertaste. Overall it’s a nice summer beer.

Its a smooth beer, reminds me of the Leffe Blond, I’m not so crazy about low alcohol percentage beers... Looks more amber to me than Blond but hey, I’m maybe color blind... More sweet than bitter, a good beer for Holland... ;)

almosi (282) - Vińa del Mar, CHILE - FEB 22, 2008
Flows of gold and cloudily yellow, with a gray head. Aroma well hoppy, with something of caramel. The flavor is to fruits, a slight candy malty. Flavors to fruit and to yeast, also the slight caramel. Agreeable Hoppy, and also the sweet malt. A bit alcoholic in the end, but well.

33 cL bottle. Pours golden and hazy yellow and with an off-white head. Light hoppy and caramel malty aroma. Fruity and yeasty flavours, slight sweet and with a solid caramel malt note. Nice fruity, slight hoppy, caramel malt sweetness and minor alcohol warming finish. Nice.
