COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

JonMoore (1851) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2004
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden colour with large bubbly white head. Aroma is interesting; malt and hops and floral and a sort of nice medicinal pineyness. Taste is spicey, dry, bitter, sweet, malty, hoppy, sourish at the end, with a lovely mouthfeel. Full bodied, crisp and refreshing with well hidden alcohol. Very impresive blonde.

Rastacouere (6126) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2004
Beautiful shining hazy golden hue. Generous white head covers the pour, but while there’s a fair bit of lacing, bubbles are pretty irregular. Superb citrusy (orange, lemon) hallertau? nose works like a wonder with the pilsner malt. Crisp delightful pilsner malt. Yummy, honey cookies! Absolutely inviting and gorgeous. Very floral and perfumey palate, spicy hops appear rather subdued, but still contribute to adding depth. Very soft mouthfeel, velvety, silky, crisp and comfortable effervesence. Complex baked pie/bread yeastiness rides along the pilsner malt and seemingly merge with it in an emotion-filled finish that you’d wish lasted longer... Awe-inspiring execution.

erickok (3514) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 16, 2011
Lively and foamy, almost clear beer. Quite yeasty, basement aromas, hay, banana and apple. Tasty farmyard, biere de garde like bitterness balanced at first by an applely sweetness. Shortish aftertaste makes it very easily drinkable. Outdated label does not do this great brew justice. Spot on. (33cl bottle, 2,10 EUR)

Swaroga (1323) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours a light golden with a small white head. Nose ; Strong fruity aromas ; mostely orange, peach and strawberry. Little yeast and obvious malt background. Sip : Full body with little but foamy carbonation. Orange nose aromas now became bitter orange zest. Little cherry notes. Very small yeast sourness that behaves like fruit sourness. Malts are still playing the beer role in the background. Interesting beer. Streigh forward spicy belgian blonde that could be tripple.

floydian1 (936) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 30, 2012
33cl bottle purchased from Dan Murphy’s liquor stores. Trappist glass. Appears clear light golden with a large white head that reduces to a stable lacing collar. Pleasant inviting perfumy nose of nectarine, peaches, melon, lychee and bready malts. Flavour is typical of a superior Belgian Blonde ie. not too sweet with a nice dry finish and some earthy yeasty elements. Palate is robust and medium-full bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Rather enjoyed this one.

This is a very good beer. They got the balance just right between bitterness and a slight sweetness. Citrus wheaty aromas. Full flavor. A little nutty even. Like it.
