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.

The bottle poured a light copper colored beverage with an ample creamy white head that lasted throughout and left beautiful lacing. There was a nice malt aroma with subtle undertones of spice and phenols. It had a nice medium body and medium carbonation. The texture was smooth. The flavor starts off spicy with notes of anise. As it matures a slight sweet fruitiness comes out accompanied with some smooth malt. The finish is long and slightly spicy-sweet

Bottled. Clear yellow coloured with a small white head. Aroma of fruits and caramel. Sweet fruity flavour with notes of caramel and spices.

11.2oz Konings-Hoeven label. Dark golden colored and slightly hazed. Head shrinks to almost nothing. Body is effervescent, medium slightly clinging mouthfeel. Light hops in aroma, fruit and sweet honey. Lightly spiced flavor and a bit sweet as in honey and sugar. Light bitternes from hops. Overall nothing on the scale of their Quad but not entirely dissapointing.

Very interesting. Different in taste, texture and overall makeup to the Belgium trappist ales. Lighter, more of a medium body, a pale yellow cloudy color and while there is an array of subtle yeast, fruit and malt it’s not quite as complex as a quad which I suppose is the point.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 I believe this was an older bottle; a 750 with a cork. There was a funky barnyard aroma, almost like a lambic or gueze. Dark, cloudy yellow, with a large white head that left a thick lace on the glass. Thick mouthfeel. Bread, light fruit and light malt flavors, but none of these really stand out from the others. Another winner from La Trappe.

Pours gold with a orange hue that is sorta cloudy.The head laced up on the sides.Aromas of sweet fruit, possibly apricots.Flavor is fruity sweet with a touch of fig.Not too shabby.The finish was good and had slight warming of the belly

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Orange hazy color with a thin white head. Thewre is a good trappist-like bready yeast sweetness in the aroma, along with a light spice and banana combo. Palate is rather gentle after the intital bitterness. It really turn out into a smooth, bready sweet mouthfeel. Im rather suprised this only has a 3.3 rating. Weird.

Nice golden colour...taste is sweet, fruity and spicy. Pleasant palate, I’m really finding the "blondes" to be a great compliment to food as they are refreshing and not overly complex.

Nice and fruity, poured beautifully, nice head. Too carbonated and the alcohol really overpowered the flavour. Nice, and it is a trappist, but nothing to write home about

Outspoken fruity nose and a dark, rich golden honey tinge, La Trappe Blond is certainly an attractive beer whilst in the glass. Full-flavored, yet easy to drink, with a long-lasting yeasty-malty character, I must admit to really liking this brew and in fact the entire La Trappe range. This neat brew makes me happy if only for the fact that I no longer associate ’beer’ and ’Holland’ with that dreadful Heineken atrocity.
