Poured from a 12oz bottle a nice golden amber color with a medium off-white head. Aromas of malts, spices, and honey fill the nose. Flavor was a spicy honey with malt coming through and a good hop finish. This was a medium bodied brew with good carbonation.

This is a harcore belgian ale. Very popular in the areas of Belgium I have been. Pours with an amber color and some good head. It had an interesting taste of some caramel malt/yeast and sweetness with a small bite at the end. Top notch Belgian ale!

i was kinda shocked how much flavor this had. the packaging made me expect a hefe, then that it’s called a "blonde" made me expect weakness. here they classify it as a belgian ale. interesting. in any case, very sweet tasting, lots of banana and clove, and honey seems accurate too. a million times better than the red hook blonde it was paired against.

On tap at Winking Lizard in Columbus Ohio - Pours a golden amber witha a foamy white head that stayed pretty well and laced some. Aroma is light honey and some spice. Flavor is honey, bannana, clove, some caramel sweetness as well. Palate is medium bodied and quite drinkable.. Somewhat dry on the finish.

Draft. Translucent gold in color with fluffy, white head. There’s not a lot of complexity to the nose or flavor, but it is an enjoyable blond ale. Aroma of yeast with fruity citrus notes that lean toward apricot. The flavor is sweet with a light hint of clove. Pleasant mouthfeel and moderate finish.

Bottled, 33cl. Clear, golden beer with a dense, white, lasting head. Candi-sweet aroma with some banana and spice. The flavor is weak, with candi-sugar sweetness, banana and hops. Too sweet on the palate. Ok finish. (060508)

I’ve been enjoying Belgian beers recently, so I wanted to try this one out. I was surprised to see it was only 6.6% abv, considering its strong taste & body.
Quite an unique flavor to it, strong in yeast, as well as a honey/molasses like flavor. Pours a rich golden color, and a fair amount of carbination. Overall, a well rounded brew with quite a lot to offer.

I am not sure why I try those belgian beers. They just don’t appeal to me. Had this one at Bistro 7 1/4 in Wpg. Just something about the Belgians that I do not like.
