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.

Ernest (6749) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy light amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie, toasted grain/bread), with light notes of bubble gum, sherry, and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Probably not a real fresh bottle, but not bad.

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2006
A decent, drinkable blond but not up to La Trappe’s usual standard. Clear burnished gold with a tall, loose head, showing good length and lacing as it receded. Classic Belgian blond aroma - bubblegum, sweet malts, grape soda, Parma Violets. Very sweet and floral. Medium bodied and a softly carbonated - perhaps could use a little more meat on its bones. Very light on its toes for the 6.5% abv. Lots of sweet malts, mashed banana, bread and honey notes before a pinch of clove in the warming finish. A little simplistic. (30cl bottle; IBS Perth; bb June 2007)

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2006
Bottled, 33cl. Hazy, golden, well-carbonated beer with a white, lasting head. Fruity-sweet aroma with some cellar notes and spices. Flavor has a pronounced cellar-like taste, with fruitiness, apples and spices to accomplish. Sweet, full to medium body and a sweet and spicy finish. (060508)

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Bottle. Poured a sparkly clear cooper color with a light yellowish, creamy head that left some lacing. The aroma was fruity, floral, and citrus. The flavor found mainly fruits and spices but there were hints of honey and other malts. The flavor was really subdued in this one. Light body and lively carbonation. Slight sweetness to it.
