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.

330 ml bottle. Pours a deep golden color, slightly cloudy, medium head. Bright, fruity aroma, some banana. Taste is quite sweet, with some hops in the background. Pretty full mouthfeel, medium-heavy carbonation. A touch less sweetness would’ve made the balance better.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2008 0.5l crock (a very cool way of selling beer, more abbey beers should come in crocks for novelty value). Pours with a good head, quite a lot of carbonation. Nice blonde beer with a strong hop-flavour, a little sour but very drinkable. Almost no alcohol taste.

ekstedt (6235) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2008
Bottle (33 cl) at Tre Små Rum, Göteborg, Sweden. Hazy amber, medium off-white head. Fruity aroma with bitter almond and fudge, and yeasty notes. Medium bodied and smooth. Dry finish.

Miksu (5033) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2008
0.33 l bottle. Copper color with vanishing head. Caramel, toffee, orange and pear in the aroma. Sweetish caramelly flavor with restrained fruitiness, low bitterness and hint of herbal hops. Mellow and harmless beer without a backbone.

Christian (12207) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 24, 2008
Golden with a bubbly, disappearing head. Grain, apple, yeast in the aroma. Sweetish malty flavour, with some Belgian (no offence, Dutch brewers) fruitiness. A nice drinkable blond ale.

Bottle 0.33 l. Bought Kvickly Hilleroed. Color golden with fast disappearing white head. Aroma, fruity, habs and anis. Carbonation rich. Slight bitter. Flavor dominated by hobs, but also a bit spicy.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 12, 2008
Hazy orange with a dense, but low head. Sweet fruity aroma with notes of apple. The flavour is very fruity and perfumed with further notes of spice and toffee.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2008
On tap- Taps a cloudy gold with a generous creamy white foam. Good lace and retention on this one. Yeasty,spicy, fruity nose (pear, apple) with ample fresh hops and leafy greens. This ale shows fresh pear and other fruit flavours with a spicy, yeasty middle leading to marked hops and bitterness. Creamy and easy drinking for the alcohol content. Quite nice.

(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.
