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.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2010 18/11/2010 - 33cl bottle @ home

Little cloudy yellow to bright orange beer, thick creamy white adhesive head. Aroma: clearly distinctive hop aroma, yeast note, little bit sweet and malty, but just a tiny bit. MF: nicely balanced carbon, creamy soft texture, full body. Taste: mild and gentle hop flavour, dense malts, citrus fruits and spices. Aftertaste: balanced dry hoppiness, fruits, citrus and pepper.

Clear yellowish-orange, very carbonic. Very fine white creamy head that stays on for a long time. Some flakey sediment floating around on the carbon bubbles. In the nose some citrus. Full and bitter taste, very bitter dry aftertaste, yet very pleasing.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2016 Many thanks for this beer to Patrycja and Mr. Eryc from Belgium’s Best. Piana spora, trwala, sniezno biala. Kolor metny od samego początku, barwa jaskrawo zolta. Aromat silny jablkowy, mus jablkowy, przecier bananowy. W smaku mnóstwo jabłka i wanilli. Fajne, ozezwiajace, alkohol dobrze ukryty

Bottle @ Wellington Arms, Bedford. Light yellow with a whirlpool of carbonation. The sign of a great beer (as opposed to one that is merely good) is one that you are happy to smell for a good 10 minutes, breathing in an exciting and unique aroma. Fresh and funky, hints of seawater and TCP. The scent of heaven. Taste is even better: a balanced salty sweetness with a bittersweet finish. Palette is like the kiss of one’s own true love.

Coloração dourada belíssima e translúcida. Creme branco bem formado, de longa duração. Aroma predominantemente cítrico, com toque floral, muito agradável. Paladar cítrico, com toque de pão e pêras, acidez e picância discretas. Excelente carbonatação, álcool bem inserido. Retrogosto discreto, levante lupulado. Excelente Blond, equlibrada, grande surpresa.

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.
