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.

11.2oz pours a hazy brownish color/very dark golden, large bubbly head, lots of carbonation, sweet fruit taste, nice mouthfeel, smoother than other trappist ales of the same style.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 14, 2007
Bottle, was very lively, pouring a hazy gold with a filmy white head. A strong yeast aroma with lots of fruit and just a touch of spice. Quite a creamy palate, more spice in the flavour and some orange fruit.

kapusta (88) - Dover, Delaware, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Had this as Koningshoeven Blond, not La Trappe. This pours a light orange color with a white head. The tast is malty sweet, with hints of clove and yeast. I also tasted a cotton candy orange/citrus flavor. Better than I expected for a single Trappist ale, and stronger than I would have thought.

argo0 (12498) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 26, 2007
(750ml bottle) Lightly hazed amber body with medium off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, very fruity (peach, orange, nectarine, cantaloupe), some alcohol, almond. Taste is moderately sweet, orange, raisin, some alcohol, faint cherry, soap. Creamy medium-full body, some wateriness. Too much alcohol for such a mellow ABV.

Hazy blond, white head. Aroma: banana, citrus, sweet malt. Flavour of banana, sweet fruits and hoppy. Not too special.

33cL bottle. A nice blond but nothing special considering it came from La Trappe. I prefer their Quad.

RoyceH (1197) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUL 17, 2007
Bottle. Hazy straw to amber colour with a little white head that fades nearly straight away. Nose is slightly stale and of banana, alcohol and sweetish malt. Some citrus hints, but not big. Mouth is big on alcohol, some toffee and more banana, some sweet fruits and some bitter hoppiness. Palate is much of the same, warming and alcoholic presence.
