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.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2007
Poured with a fairly lively head that left quite quickly. The liquid below is a slightly opaque golden orange. Early aroma is a yeasty banana whiff while the head is present, but this gives way to a more thick and syrupy canned fruit. On tasting there’s a little bit of zing from some rearguard bitterness, but it is a little lacking in oomph everywhere. Thin bodied and with a strange corny lager aftertaste it manages to fall away a bit drastically at the end.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2007 Nice golden with a huge, white head. The aroma is floral and fruity. Flavour, well I admit that La Trappe has a very, special place in my heart, I simply like their beers!! It starts sweet and lightly spicy wit a strong fruity note, I get green, sweet grapes, flower honey and the aroma of summer transformed into taste. A light citrus kicks in just before the finish. Balanced, uncomplicated and nice - and extremely charming.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2006
Cloudy dirty blond body with a long-lasting small white head. A bit stinky with a ripe pear and peach aroma. Maybe a bit too ripe. Taste is dominated by fruitiness (peach, peach and various citrus fruits). Some cereals, a little caramel and a lick on of a fruity candy. Not very pleasant. Certainly the worst trappist beer I’ve had. La Crap Blond.

La Trapple Blond (e3.0 @ Café Arendnest) Fairly standard blond ale, no world beater but quite solid. Sweetish malts drive the front and middle palate but the flavours do fade away somewhat in the back palate. A: 3 N: 5 F: 5 P: 3 Overall: 11

Fukito (890) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 22, 2006
Bottle, December 2006. Shinny bright golden color with vivid carbonatation and a medium bubbly white head. Aroma is strange mixture between yeast, bananas and slightly phenols. Some fruit at the end. Taste is yeasty, spicy, esthery, a little restrained, not very complex. Medium to light aftertaste, some earthy hops at the end.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2006
Golden blond coloured, with an average white head, and some light carbonation. Fruity yeasty aroma. Medium to full body.Rather alcoholic yeasty finish. I had better Belgian Ales

tomthompson89 (1924) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2006
nice white head leaves a nice lacing around the glass, golden, sweet smell kinda fruity, and some yeasty skunky aroma, flavour of orange, some wheat and a good alcohol finish, decent blond

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2006
Bottle: Clear gold with a large white head. Wheaty bananas in the nose with some warming clove and peppery alcohol presence. There’s a slightly metallic grassy edge though, as well as a touch of creamed corn. In the mouth banana esters and some wheat tang, but it’s all a little underwhelming, despite a nice, creamy mouthfeel and gentle warmth. What really grates is a wet cardboard taste that accompanies the corn aroma. Pretty dissapointing.

Very fruity aroma of apple, mango and yeast. Hazy orange colour, thick white head. Orange taste, nice long bitter aftertaste.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2006
Pours a deep golden orange with an initially large white head, which fades. . Soft and different. A bit fruity, hints of pears, green grapes (white wine like), touch of old basement. Light fluffy mouthfeel. Sweetness is present. Fruity, pears a bit muscat like. Touch of green grapes, apricot. A bit of a stale charateristic, corky flavor, almost reminiscent of wet basement. Soggy woodchip, late alcohol hint. Different.
