12 oz bottle. Pours a clear bright golden colored body under a fluffy and creamy white head composed of fine bubbles. Bready malt aroma with a light accent of hops and a general fruitiness. Fruity and slightly tart flavor with quite a bit of alcohol apparency. A light smack of lemony hops follows in the finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied with an intense efforvescent fizzy carbonation. A decent beer, but the alcohol flavor and mouthfeel are big detractors for me.

Kevin (2047) - New Mexico, USA - MAR 17, 2006
Light yellow tan with a clingy swampy white head. Oreo cream, yeast, and lemon nose. Lemon cookie flavor with a nice scrubbing bubbles mouthfeel. Yeasty irish cream like flavor for lack of a better descriptor. This is not a beer to drink while listening to pretty woman, it does not jive correctly. A nice bark like bitterness remains with a touch of yeast and cream. I have to say the song is better than the beer but that is o.k. The song is a masterpiece the beer is just good. Nice emerging citrus to this that I can dig on. Ap-3 ar-6 tas-6 pal-4 ov-13

Pours out a cloudy golden color with a thin head. Aroma is of yeast and some spice. Taste is mostly of fruit with some notes of spice here and there and a bit yeasty on the finish. Overall this was an average beer

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2006 33 cl bottle. Hazy orange golden beer with a thin off-white head. Aroma is slightly sweet, honey, marzipan, light peach and a bit of lactic tartness. A bit of yeasty spice, light pepper. Flavour is fairly subtle. Acidity is less in the mouth than the aroma would suggest. Light peach, sugar, sweet honeyish flavour and a faint peppery finish. A good, straightforward Belgian.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 18, 2006
Light, hazy, tan colour. Thick, rocky head. Aroma shows peaches, banana, and biscuits. Flavour is yeasty and dry with candy bananas, peaches, pear syrup and biscuity influences. A very slight hint of alcohol and whisper of continental hop rounds out this unpretentious, well-balanced ale.

roder60 (1282) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Nice golden color with a decent amount of fizzy white head. Aroma is fruity and peachy. Flavor is light and drinkable, but also very fruity with some sweetened apricot, peach, and grapefruit undertones. Overall, I found this to be a very drinkable beer.

diabel (1603) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2006
Bottle, BBE September 21st, 2007 Blond, clear body with a white, creamy head, which lasts mostly. Nose of hops and hints of light malts. Lightly to medium bodied. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter initial flavour. Moderately bitter, very lightly sweet finish. Lively carbonation. Somewhat watery but still a quite good balance in the flavour. Enjoyable beer with some bitterness.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 6, 2006
This Belgian Ale pours an orange gold color from a 300ml bottle. Large sized white foamy head, with persistent lacing. Aroma is fruity and sweet, touch of floral hops. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. Malts are fruity (peaches and apricots) and sweet. Hops are slightly citrusy. Smooth tasting Belgian Blond Ale with some hop bite. Lively carbonation. A fruity and mild beer, its very drinkable, but not very exciting. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2006
New label with chubby santa looking monk holding a cross in one hand and a galss of beer in the other. Oh ha, the beer is golden with a slight haze and a frothy white head. Aroma is grain with some hops. Tastes citrusy with some grapefruit and some floral spices. Very dynamic "blond", glad to see ratebeer categorize this oppropriately as a Belgian Ale. Tasty.
