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.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2005
Unexciting beer with buttery honey sweetness, giving me nothing and the persistand yeast gets in the way, never mind the alcohol that would make you think this was a 10% beer.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Pale amber with a creamy head, this has an aroma of pale malts, floral hopping, and tart orange juice. Soft but creamy in the mouth, it tastes of soured orange, sweet malt, white pepper, hop bitterness, and, although not particularly strong, a touch of alcohol. The finish is abrupt, slightly dry. Drinkable, but not memorable.

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2005
Medium white head, quickly subsiding. Clear orange body. Sweet vinuous banana-like aroma with sourish lacquer notes. Taste very like the aroma, very soft. Watery mouthfeel. Faint, lingering, peppery, banana-like flavours. No real aftertaste. Good, highly drinkable, but for a Belgian-style beer not that interesting.

imdownthepub (10212) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2005
Bottled, 330ml, filtered. Orange gold with large white head. There is a spicy, tangy aroma followed by a thinnish and slightly cheap perfumy flavour, bubblgum sweet with a hint of Bazooka Joe strawberry. Grainy and pleasantly malted, but overall a little too cloying.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2005
Bottle: Poured a deep golden/orangey color ale with a huge foamy head with excellent retention. Aroma of floral malt with candy-like sweetness, which is very enjoyable and reminiscent of the other beer from this brewery. Taste is also dominated by the candy-like sweetness and big malt. This beer does the same thing that Christophel did for me for Pilsner if you see what I mean.

11.2 fl. oz bottle. The head was nice, thick and foamy. The taste is a bit like bananas. Itís a light beer.

ABUSEDGOAT (2388) - California, USA - NOV 30, 2005
This beer started and ended poorly. It was a struggle to get the cork out. Anyway... Hazy orange body with no head. Aroma is fruity with other fun Belgian stuff. Almost a stale basement feel to the flavor which hurt the fruity taste. If itís not that itís the yeast strain... and I donít like it. Really an odd fruity taste, not good in a beer IMO. Almost no hop presence here other than a bitter finish. Maybe the bottle went bad, but either way I didnít like this. I wanted to like this but it just didnít happen. I didnít want to post this before I finished the 750ml bottle, and believe me... it took a while. I even feel like 2.8 is a gift :(

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 27, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2006 Well, the aroma was great, but, no foam at all, no flavor, and the colour was good, but, I did not like it at all.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2005
Lasting white head, peppery dry hops hit you at the start. Taste has pepper with a touch of anise and ouzo.

Panzerfaust (561) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 21, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2006 Pours a gold and beautiful beer with a big foamy head that diminished fast and leaves a good lacing. Aroma is malty/yeasty, full of fruity notes, melon, apricot, vanilla and peaches. There are also some alcoholic hints. The flavor is sweet and leaves a warming sensation. Very fruity as the taste with little if any bitterness. Goes down smooth with a fine alcoholic note. Light bodied and well rounded. Fine Belgian Ale.
