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.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - APR 24, 2007
Yellowish colour (young home made Aligote wine), very cloudy, respectable foamy head. Fruity aroma and palate. An extradose of yeast.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2007
Pours a golden color with a large frothy head that disappated quickly. There was almost no lacing left on the glass. I smelled malt, spices and some dried fruit on the nose. Very dry palate with tastes of malt, fruit and yeast. Very low carbonation and not. The mouthfeel wasn’t what I expected and was rather weak for a Belgian Ale. It seemed like something was missing as this was not very complex.

DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2007
Rhythmically ticking (really) murky orange measure sniffing of wood, candy and bananas. Flavour-wise, peach-like fruitiness, slightly smoky malt and pleasantly wheaty afters. But a dank, watery antiseptic cardboard back taste that really doesn’t convince. Echoes of Vieux Lille. Very disappointing.

begbie100 (181) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2007
Bottle. Little cloudy, yellow color. Sweet aroma with flowers, yeast and wheat. Feels thick in mouth with right balance of carbonate. Didn’t like the taste that much. It has lots of different hard-to-define flavours. overripe fruits, vegetables (peas?) and yeast. This is my first belgian ale, and it wasn’t my kind of beer.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2007
Bottle, 750 ml. (bb 06.2007) Clear orange/golden body under a low, vanishing white head. Typical fruity Belgo nose with scents of ripe banana and mild spices. Nice sweet/acidic flavors; sweet citrus, green apples with hints of honey, spice and alcohol. Distant hopbitterness. Smooth palate. Dry/acidic finish.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 26, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 BALANCED. Color amber, gives will to fall soon of mouth at the beginning. The aroma is a chapter to the part, floral intense, felt me in Belgium of truth. Accented palate and balanced of banana and malt, a delight. If it has something that I can say against this beer I am the cream. In my cup, it was not nothing consistent and persistent........................................ Putzz loira maravilhosa! Se me pedirem pra definir essa breja com uma palavra, eu diria: BALANCEADA. Cor âmbar lindão, dá vontade de cair de boca logo no início. O aroma é um capítulo à parte, floral intenso, me senti na Bélgica de verdade. Paladar acentuado e balanceadinho de banana e malte, uma delícia. Se há algo que eu possa dizer contra essa cerva é o creme. No meu copo, não foi nada consistente e persistente. Mas nada que atrapalhe tanto. Me diverti com essa loirinha de responsa.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - FEB 25, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 Ótima blonde! Cor dourada, levemente turva. Aroma e paladar frutados e levemente metálicos. Notas de cravo. Sinto também um leve floral. Álcool imperceptivel, o que para mim é uma grande virtude. Carbonatada, mas sem exagero. O creme se dissipou um pouco rápido. O amargor, assim como os demais elementos, muito bem balanceado. Não precisa ser tomada tão gelada: sua performance cresceu após alguns minutos no copo.
