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.

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 (4385) - 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.

yngwie (16422) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2007
Bottled. It is a bit unclear, with sediments floating in the golden body with a big, white head. Fruity aroma with banana, hints of citrus, some spices, tea, apple and some yeast. Fruity and lightly spiced flavor with spices, some cellar and some alcohol. Medium to full mouthfeel with some sweet stickyness. It has some metallic notes as well. A nice, yet a bid mediocre blond.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2006
Plenty of orange-tangerine-citrus in the doughy, yeasty nose along with a light spiciness. Clear, deep golden coloured body with plenty of tiny little bubbles that keep the fizzy head from diminishing beyond a partial cover. Doughy yeast with strong citrus and banana fruitiness. Decent bitterness with a hint of alcohol in the finish. Strong carbonation that is a bit aggressive over a medium body that is a bit slick in texture. Snifter. Cellar temperature. Bottle (BB Sep-08, Bièropholie, Aug-06).

CapFlu (5100) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2006
(33cl bottle) Bieropholie Private Import. Pours a large, frothy yellowish head and a clear golden body. Nose of cinnamon spice, caramel malt and somewhat yeasty. The flavour follows with a roasty elixir and a tad doughy. I cannot say that this was anything special.
