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.

Hazy golden robe with a generous off-white head, long-lasting. Aroma is sweet, malty crème caramel together with a estery medicinal fruitiness (bananas, peaches), spicy. Taste is more of the same with a light refreshing tartness paired with a dry finish. Overall, I'd compare it to Brugse Straffe Hendrik Blond, it's okay, but will never stand out.

CapFlu (4501) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2003
(11.2 oz bottle) Pours a HUGE frothy, almond head and a cloudy, golden body. Head is non-dissipating. Beautiful perfume nose of bubblegum and bananas. Little detection of the 6.5% ABV. Smooth, Lovely!

Wonderful aroma and appearance. The flavor reminded me of banana creme pudding. Very smooth and drinkable.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2003
Slightly cloudy, golden, somewhat creamy head and nice lace. Soft malty nose with saaz and flowery hop notes and some definite yeast characteristics. Medium bodied, smooth, fairly soft with some biting carbonation. Nice malts with a weird yeasty, slick, fruity sweetness, somewhat dry and bitter finish. Very drinkable and you could do alot worse.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2003
This was good, but it was not nearly as good as other I have had from this one. A very lively appearance and aroma, that pours a light golden color. Lots of big fruit flavors and a taste that is very dry. Again, lightly skunky, but very enjoyable to drink.

larsniclas (5596) - Billdal, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2003
Sampled at Stockholm beer festival 2003. Golden, a bit hazy. Fine head. Fruity aroma from plums/prune. Rather lively and fresh with a fruity flavour.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Koningshoeven label. Dark blonde body, lots of rising carbonation, medium fluffy head. I do smell what Oakes says - tomato, or at least ketchup, along with some mild spice and generic fruitiness. Pretty mild flavor. Pretty mediocre beer. This is made by monks?

Bottled. Sampled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Yellow. Ardent, spicy aroma with a mild, clean flavour. Dry finish.

(Stockholm Beer Festival 2003) Golden, not very clear. Has a fruity aroma. Rather mild, has touches of yeast in the flavor. Almost no bitterness.

haukur (1288) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 16, 2003
a very nice blonde, reminded me of Kasteel blonde, but a little toned done, I could drink this everynight, very smooth and a little simple, not a very trappist like, but then again, I dont consider La Trappe beinng a trappist
