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.

vyvvy (4623) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Pours orange with a thick light tan head. The aroma has light fruits (apple, nectarine), spice, sweet malt and a light hint of barnyard. Medium body with some slickness and sharp carbonation. The taste starts with musty fruity malt and some cardboard. Not as complex as most Belgium ales. The finish has some sourness and astringency. Okay beer, but for the price there are significantly better Belgium brews to sample.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2007
Dark orange colored, cloudy appearance. Fastly vanishing yellow head. Nice aroma: fruits, yeast, toffee, banana and some spices. Medium bodied. Flavor is also good Belgian: yeast and spices come up strongly, banana is obvious also. Yeast in aftertaste with banana. Carbonation is surprisingly strong.

omhper (20916) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2007
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Clear amber, small head. Papery malt aroma. Sweet and mustardy with crisp, rather clean mouthfeel. Some almondy yeast, low bitterness. A streamlined, well drinkable rather balanced ale.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Pours very dark for a "blonde" with a golden brown/amber look and a decent amount of head. Aroma is lightly fruity, and a little yeasty, and the taste is sweet and a little fruity. Had this once before at a much colder temp. and it was not nearly as good, much better around 50 F.

SHIG (3914) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Bottle: Poured a golden amber with a thick creamy white head. The aroma was fruit and yeast. The flavor is a mild fruit with a dry finish. Not as harsh as some blonde beer that I have sampled.

for a blond, she’s more of a strawberry blonde. darker pour for the style. 330ml slightly chilled to about 50 deg F. whole lotta grass in this nose, even some fall foliage. weird, but true. hardly any hops in the aroma, but all kinds of malt. interesting flavor; similar to the flavors of a dry riesling, but with more alcohol flavor. also, the flavor mimics the aroma. foamy mouthfeel. the finish turns me off, as the alcohol flavor is just not what i like to see shine through. i think i like it, but i’m not really sure. as the temp increases a bit, so does the flavor.

Muggus69 (1491) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2007
330ml bottle straight from the cellar. Plenty of fruity notes on the nose; banana, peach, apricot, bit of honey and spice, bit of gassy too. Pours a thick looking golden body with big white head and sparce lace. Rich texture, surupy, with a bit of creaminess still. Palate full of banana and stone fruits, sweet, citrus, dry slightly abrupt finish with a lingering note reminisant of drinking an orange liqueur. An enjoyable ale.
