COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

Golden color, with a large, white head. Aromas of hops and fruit. Flavors are sweet malt, fruit, and bananas. Body seems just right. Better than I expected.

A medium sized white colored head. The coloring of the body is a very light gold with lots of carbonation bubbles. The aroma is vanilla ice cream, peaches and banana bread. Teh flavor is sweet with bananas, cinnamon and bready witha slight clove finish. This is light and too sweet. Could also use more body.

Bottle from gift pack with glass. Hazy dark golden pour with little head. Aroma was nice fruity, malty, but not very strong. Very nice delicate flavor of banana and peach. Lightly hopped and well matched to the fine flavor. Slightly sharp finish. I liked this a lot, much more tasty than the low average rating it has recieved. Very pleasant blond ale. Very tasty and good looking in the Koningshoven gold-rimmed glass. Many of the ratings on the Ratebeer website just donít make any sense, it gets a 3.71 on beeradvocate which is much more sensible. Even swill from Sam Adams gets a 3.3 on this system. This ale is quite delicious. No accounting for taste here... and while Iím complaining, this website has more downtime and server issues than any other website that I use.. (sorry for the rant...Iím through now)

Bottle. Amber color with a whitish head. Fruity banana aroma with yeast and malt. Malt, fruit, and big banana flavors. Medium body with a certain smoothness. Some metallic flavors to end with.

Pours murky golden yellow with a big white head. Aroma is yeasty banana and some citrus maybe orange? Banana did not show up well in the flavor mostly a light malt taste with a slightly dry bitter finish. Just lacks a bit in flavor. Overall decent.

Yellow color much cargo, veiled aspect. Adherent foam. Good scent but without expected particular. Too much high lightly the alcoholic degree. Altogether good.

Sammy (8850) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2004
Great aroma from yeast. Fruity peach and secondary citrus taste, easy drink. Good 1st or 2nd beer. A great pale. Hoppy too.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 3, 2004
A golden/amber color, with light co2 and a full white head (low retention). Light aroma hop, and smells of bubblegum, malt, cider and banana. Flavor is lightly sweet -- malt and banana with a tart and lightly acrid finish. Palate is light bodied, but lively and effervescent. IMHO: No brouhaha here. I am partial to Belgian beer, but this one is not very remarkable and poorly balanced.

Golden color with a thick white head. Sweet fruit aroma with a bit of a musty scent. Sweet malt and fruit flavor but not overly so. Finish is a little tart and bitter. Iím surprised at the fairly low average for this beer. I liked it quite a bit.
