I actually ordered this thinking this was rated fairly high on this site but I see now it isn’t. I thought this was a pretty boring beer. Maybe I should go back and try the Chimay type beers again. This is dirty yellow in color. And it has that typical Belgian fruity fizzy flavor. (draft)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2003 Never really minded it. Fluffy white head, clear golden colour, nice lace, yeasty Belgian character, in both the nose and palate. Fairly simple, but with some nice yeasty almost doughy characters, nothing special, but pretty solid.

Okay. Nothing special. Can’t quite describe it. I found it very sweet. Also noticed the taste of alcohol quite a bit. Not a very balanced beer. I’ve had worse.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 Bottle. Gold, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Faint esters and sweet butterscotch in the nose with a faint woodsmoke and kipper note and a little warming alcohol. Soft and gentle caramel sweetness in the mouth with some earthy yeastiness but becoming quite cloying with time, lingering sweetnes in the finish with some starchy Eurolager notes, yeasty bitterness and retronasal alcohol burn.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2005 Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, mold), with notes of clove and pineapple. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Not terribly clean tasting, with an aroma that portends of its graininess. Ok, but soulless and paint-by-numbers.

Quite tasty. Not as interesting and complex as other Belgian blondes.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A different Belgian Ale, very subdued in flavor compared to many of the others i have tried. Tasted almost like a cross between a wit beer and a Belgian ale. Some light spicy and fruity citrusy tastes and aromas. Can’t compete with the better Belgians i have had.
