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.

dj (562) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle, 500ml. A hazy amber colour with a good head. Aroma is belgian yeast, banana, fresh citrus and a touch of spice. Flavour is malt, marzipan, banana, orange, caramel and a touch of clove. Fairly sweet. High carbonation - too much for my liking. A sweet, malty, somewhat alcoholic finish with some fresh citrus. This is a fairly good Belgian ale.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2007
(33cL bottle, BB May2009): Pours a golden clear yellow, slightly fizzy. Good sized head, diminishing, foamy. Sweet floral aroma, some dark fruit, typical belgian ale aroma. Thick syrupy initail taste, light taste, fizzy & slightly bitter aftertaste, with some fruit sweetness on the end. Very floral taste. Decent, but a little plainish.

Bottle. Pours a nice golden orange slightly hazy colour with a big bubbly and creamy shortl lasting white head. Aroma of yeast, fruits, toasty malt and caramel. The flavour yeasty and malty with caramel, slightly smoky, good fruitiness and alcohol. Bit dry hoppy sweet finish.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2007
33 cl bottle, ’bbe’ Sep 08. Orange, light cloudy. Yeasty and fruity (banana, melon, pineapple) aroma. Sweetish and fruity taste with a light hoppy finish, which develops certain spiciness retronasally. Nice body for a 6.5% beer.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - APR 24, 2007
Yellowish colour (young home made Aligote wine), very cloudy, respectable foamy head. Fruity aroma and palate. An extradose of yeast.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2007
Pours a golden color with a large frothy head that disappated quickly. There was almost no lacing left on the glass. I smelled malt, spices and some dried fruit on the nose. Very dry palate with tastes of malt, fruit and yeast. Very low carbonation and not. The mouthfeel wasn’t what I expected and was rather weak for a Belgian Ale. It seemed like something was missing as this was not very complex.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2007
Rhythmically ticking (really) murky orange measure sniffing of wood, candy and bananas. Flavour-wise, peach-like fruitiness, slightly smoky malt and pleasantly wheaty afters. But a dank, watery antiseptic cardboard back taste that really doesn’t convince. Echoes of Vieux Lille. Very disappointing.

Borup (10323) - Albertslund, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2007

begbie100 (181) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2007
Bottle. Little cloudy, yellow color. Sweet aroma with flowers, yeast and wheat. Feels thick in mouth with right balance of carbonate. Didn’t like the taste that much. It has lots of different hard-to-define flavours. overripe fruits, vegetables (peas?) and yeast. This is my first belgian ale, and it wasn’t my kind of beer.
