rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Presentation: It was poured from a stubby brown 11.2oz bottle into my Westmalle Trappist chalice. The abv is listed as 6% and there is a "Best before" date of 05 2011. The back label also has a short description of the beer. Appearance: Its body has a deep orange amber color with a very slight haze to it. It is also full of visible carbonation racing up to the head. The head is just off white in color and very thick and creamy. It has excellent retention and it maintains a good cap of foam until the end. Smell: In the nose I get sweet bready and yeasty notes with some light fruity and medicinal estery notes. There is a bit of alcohol as well. Taste/Palate: The flavor is fruity, estery, sweet and bready with solid herbal bitterness from the hops. Mild fruity notes of peach, red apples skins and pear are suggested on my tongue. The palate is very creamy and smooth but still quite lively from the carbonation. Notes: It is a very enjoyable Blonde for sure with nice balance of malt and hops.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 17, 2010
750ml bottle. Lightly sweet, malty, honeyish aroma, gently herbal and fresh with background notes of doughy bread and spice. Mostly clear light-medium golden-amber color with a lasting, fluffy head and thick sheets of lacing. Flavor profile is fruity, sugary and light, with touches of floral sweetness, lemon and pear, some faint yeast and hop undertones towards the finish. Light, airy, effervescent and gently bitter on the palate, body is medium. Sweetness is kept in balance. This is just a nice, easy drinking Belgian style.

kidmartinek (4692) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2010
Slight orange tint. Quick, white head. Old, dirty, belgian yeast aroma. Belgian yeast flavor with bananna, vanilla and clover. Heavy, doughy body for a blonde ale. A bit too congestive to be that enjoyable. Good, bitter hop finish though.

legion242 (2344) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2010
A very sessionable Belgian. Almost saison-like. Soft palate, big, tight, fluffy white head that sustains.

bleeng (1668) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2010
Draft. Hazy yellow. Nose of Belgian yeast and a bit of spiciness. Taste is a bit yeasty, sticky, dry on the end. A hint of sweetness. Nice summer quencher.

mkel07 (5226) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2010
330ml bottle. Crisp dirty white head atop a sandy amber base. Plenty of bubbles throughout the glass with a pleasant aroma of preserved fruit and spices. Sweet taste with an aftertaste that sist in the back of the throat. Okay overall without being outstanding.

Metalchopz (3095) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2010
Came in a gift pack for Christmas 2008, with all three different brews and a glass... so enjoying this one in its glass. Pours a beautiful hazy golden-orange colour with a frothy off-white head, good retention, great thick lacing and champagne-like carbonation. The aroma is flowing with oranges, Belgian white yeast, honey and spices. Best before date on back label is 04 2011. The mouthfeel is creamy and pretty full-bodied. Apples are found in the taste, with the barley malt, other light fruits and a little alcohol. The flavours are what is the lightest in this beer. Not overpowering with a nice subtle finish. Definitely a work of wonders for a blond.
