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.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Beer pours deep gold, almost orange, with white head. The white head is thick and laces the glass heavily. The aroma is a little grassy, lots of sweet malts, sugar, and lots of yeast - very bready and sweet with some alcohol, too. The beer is very bready and malty, very little hops, some sweetness. The finish is thinner, with a little hops and some astringent, grassy flavors.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2006
Gold with a merange like head. Big aroma of peaches and spices. Lots of fruit flavour without too much spice. I prefer it like this. The spices do however contribute to an excellent bitter finish. I don’t usually like this style but I really liked this regardless of this bottle not being trappist. Probably the best of this style I’ve drunk. Much, much better than the Jopen blonde I had recently.

Diogène (1067) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2006
Bottle from the SAQ. Poured a hazy blond ale with a medium white head that disappear quickly. The aroma is pretty subtel but reveal interesting notes of spices, sweet malt, and honey. Taste is well malted, not too sweet, with a nice coriande touchr and a long spicy, sweet and somewhat bitter aftertaste. Palate is a little shy of being medium. Good.

Bottle under the name of Koningshoeven 4 pack. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate bread malty and sour citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture. Medium balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.
