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.

Swaroga (1394) - 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 (1005) - 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.

Sammy (8726) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2004
Light on the mouth with spicey lemon yeast. Lace that stays in the cup, many small bubbles from good carbonation. Really 7.5%? Malty and refreshing. Bit of dry bitter afterataste from hops. Floral yeasty aroma.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2005
75 cL bottle. Clear, golden, straw color with large white head and nice lacing. Slight bubble gum aroma with sweetness. The flavor has orange peel and some cucumber (with the skin). It is quite effervescent and that brings out the hops nicely. It is somewhat dry at the finish. Delicious beer, love this style now, too.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2005
Golden colour. Nice, thick, foamy white head. Fruity, vanilla, spicy & slight hoppy nose. Flavour is pretty much the same, but has a little yeasty, metallic finish. Full bodied. This is good stuff.

Jado (549) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2013
330 ml bottle. The clear yellow-amber body is topped by a huge white head that lasts pretty well and leaves good lacing. Vigorous carbonation. Apple, banana and yeast on the nose. Taste is raisins, spice - cinnamon, clove and pepper - lemon, even a slight sarsparilla note. Not much of the banana from the aroma oddly. Can’t even detect the relatively high a.b.v. This is a pretty awesome Belgian blonde - one of the best I’ve had recently.
