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.

On Tap, at the Wenlock Arms, with SilkTork
After difference in opinion on this beer, SilkTork and I agreed that it was served too cold. After efforts to warm the beer with my hands, the flavours developed noticeably. Sweet and ripe, jammy yet thin on the palate.

SilkTork (5156) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2008 June, 2003 On tap, Wenlock Arms, with Spiesy. Peaches, pineapple, banana, kiwi. Sweet with mild rancid bacon. Sweetness too prominent for pleasure. Initial short watery finish which returns with gentle warm bitterness later on. [3.5]
Oct, 2008 330ml bottle Huge bubblegum aroma. Quite fizzy. Again bubblegum in the taste - some clean oak vanilla, quite sherbety and sweet with a pear-drops taste, yet the mouthfeel is fairly dry. A bit of smoked bacon. A light hearted beer - very light for a 6.5%, though the plastic alcohol notes are present. It’s a reasonably enjoyable beer, but doesn’t quite pull together satisfactorily. [2.7]

Dorwart (2356) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2003
Nice white head of rather small bubbles with excellent carbonation. Aroma is fruity (lemon) with wheat and yeast. Color of a medium orange/gold. Flavor is smooth and well balanced with some light fruit. The carbonation makes it seem more like a champaign but without all of the sweetness. Finish is a little dry and bitter and is well balanced again. I decent belgian ale but does not have the complexity of most of the other trappist ales and is not as good as some of the other La Trappe beers.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2003 Beautiful white head, slowly diminishing leaving a nice lace. Dark golden body. Sweet and fruity aroma (apple, banana). Sweet and uncomplicated flavour finishing with a mixture of sirup and bitterness. Good "supermarket beer".

Suddenly you can find this beer all over Ohio. It's fairly good.

Doesn't measure up to the other La Trappe brews. Average Blonde at best.

Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2003
A slightly unclear orange beer with a fantastic head. The aroma is primarily fruity but with soft wheat tones. Lovely flavor: orange, sweet, soft, round, wheat, and a sting of alcohol. Ending on a filling sweet note rather than bitterness. A great beer.

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2003
Wow, this beer smells kind of skunky. The color is a golden orange, the head is thin and chunky. Flavor is quite pleasant. Yeast and fruit front, bright and lively on the tounge, and nice fizzy finish. You cannot go wrong with a Trappist Ale.

Panzuriel (1281) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2003
Slightly hazy liquid with a giant foamy head that lasts the life of the beer. Nice sweet malt aroma with hints of fruit. Good sweet malty flavor. Easy drinking. Hints of metal appear halfway through the glass. Finishes very smoothly. Clean and easy to drink.
