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.

There are a lot of soft, gentle blond ales in Belgium; this one manages "above-average" by ducking excessive sweetness and spicing. Sparkling gold, moderately bitter even, and a bit bready. Winds up off-dry. The word "honest" pops into my head. All things considered I would rather drink this than most other Huyghe beers, including that one with the pink elephant.

lusikka (5996) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Draught @ Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Rated on 1.3.2013.
Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma of clove, grass and some apricot. Flavour of sweet malts, peach, apricot, clove and mild bitterness. Medium bodied, high carbonation and a sweet, mild spicy finish. Easy-going and easy to forget.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2012
(Draught at Delirium Café, Brussels, 20 Oct 2012) Golden colour with brief, white head. Malty nose with notes of bread, dried fruit, grass, hay and peaches. Malty, slightly fruity taste with bready malt, apricots, biscuits and a mild, spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Not very exciting, but quite enjoyable.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Draft from Churchkey in DC. Damn, this was surprisingly good. Light, slightly herbal and spicy... definitely not your typical Belgian blond. Notes of honey and heather. Refreshing.

Clear blond to light orange beer, aery yellow head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: citrus, floral, sweet, sugary, some fruity yeast esthers. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet start, pretty fruity, honey, bit floral, bitter touch. Aftertaste: sweet, little bitter, some honey, bit of yeast, spices. Not as bad as I had feared.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2012
#783 Trüber Apfelsaft mit vielen, großen Schwebeteilchen; sieht echt fies aus! Fruchtiges Aroma nach Pfirsich, Zitrone und Hefe. Schmeckt irgendwie wie ein kohlensäureschwaches Weizen. Die Flasche mit dem St. Idesbald sieht gut aus. Der Inhalt ist leider nur ordentlich. Anmerkung: Mein Bier hat 6,5% Alkohol. Test vom 2.7.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 3,10,9,9,12,9 - 8,70
