On the basis of ancestral recipes, this relatively light blonde, remains faithful to the principles of the monks who populated the old abbey of Belgian. It refreshes intelligently, and will charm the thirst in hot weather.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2007
Draught @ Delerium, Brussels. Light caramelly biscuity malts. Herbal floral hops and thin tart finish. Not bad but tartness takes over and isnt integrated.

SilkTork (5542) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2007
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A light, delicate, fragrant strong pale ale. The yeast has worked well to create a dry and lean ale redolent with subtle flowery flavours. Sweetness from the addition of sugar in the bottle gives a rounded balance and a fine effervescence. A surprisingly gentle and attractively drinkable blond.

Best beer of the tasting by a long shot, and my best blond iv ever had, including woman. Aroma was super peachy, pineapple sweet malts and raisins, very very nice. Taste is similar fruityness, not so sweet as easy drinking, really peachy. An excellent beer in every way.

JK (5735) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Served in the ceramic bowl at Trollkelder, Ghent. Thick, rocky head. Fruity aroma. Dry, light malty flavor with just a hint of fruit. Simple but good.

madsberg (11369) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2007
Draught. Light yellow coloured. Clear. Dense off white head. Sweetish, light yeasty and some fruity notes. Flavour and aroma is a bit bland. Flavour of sweets and spice. Yeast is notable. A bit thin bodied. Yeasty sweet end. Fairly average and easy to forget beer.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2007
A Sim rate (Draught at ZBF): Very faint hay aroma. Slightly sweet and honey. Generic blonde flavour with a bit of extra malt. Almost salty. No finish. Pretty straight forward but easily drinkable.

ludde (3) - SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2007 does not count
Draught at Pressklubben, Stockholm, Sweden. Pours golden color with a white head. Very bubbly. Fruity aroma. Flavor is very lightly sour. The body is light and creamy. This is a half-decent belgian blond, nothing special.

SHIG (4670) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 10, 2007
Bottle: Poured hazy amber with a thin white head. The aroma was hoppy floral. The flavor was floral and slightly bitter. The best part was this being served in a ceramic bowl.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2007
Pours a clear golden color with small floaties in it and a thick, rocky white head. The aroma is mostly about the yeast, there are also fruits that were detected. The flavor is a bit underwhelming, there’s yeast, fruits and spices but it doesn’t feel too exciting and entertaining. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. As with a lot of this breweries’ beers, it’s a decent belgian beer but not interesting enough to want to buy it again.
