Belle blonde qui titre 7°, composée de malt d’orge et de froment, quelques épices lui donnent un parfum d’agrumes qui font sa notoriété depuis plus de 30 ans.

boto (2064) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 31, 2007
750ml. bottle: This came from the local food store in France. It had a plastic cork that was just about impossible to remove. I wish that I had some pliers. It pours a clear golden color, with a bit of fizziness. There was a fairly decent head on it, but it went away rather quickly. Milder aroma, but pleasant. Notes of spice, grassiness, some malt. No real standouts. The flavor lacks standouts, but is a very nice blend. Some malts, citrus, bitterness, grassiness. This sort of grows on you. Not bad!

goozen (3731) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle 0,30ltr: Orange coloured beer with a lot of fruity flavors and very sweet, it will stick on your lips.

Svesse (7699) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2006
(Draught at Au Trappiste, Paris, 15 Oct) Golden yellow colour with huge frothy white head. Very lively, lots of carbonation. Fruity nose with spices, clove and a hint of Seville orange. Fruity taste with citrus (orange, Seville orange), spicy hoppy notes and balanced sweetness. Nice and spicy.

Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2006
1/3 l bottle. Bright golden color with weak head. Sweet aroma with fruity esters, malt, herbal hops, citrus fruits, vanilla and woody spices. Sweet honeyish malty flavor with herbal hop flavor and some bitterness. A bit too sweet Leffe Blonde like beer.

Nagash (207) - Paris, FRANCE - JUL 7, 2006
Good classical "bière de garde" beer with a lot of flowery/spicy aroma and taste. Alcohol is not too present, sweet bitterness, quite refreshing.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2006
Bottle (750ml, Utobeer): Golden, short white lasting head. Spicy aroma with some grainy, biscuity malts. Flavour is quite simple, clean malts and spicy, floral hops. No real funk, but a slight citrus edge. Refreshing.
