COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2011
Slightly hazy golden beer with a rocky white head. Archetypal aromas of a belgian blonde, i.e. spicy, floral and slightly perfumed with notes of pepper, banana, orange peel and citrus. It’s heavy sweet in the mouth, slightly acidic and medium bitter - and the notes of orange peel are (nearly too) very present. Medium body, lively carbonation and an astringent slightly bitter finish. Easy drinkable.

hbmason (1086) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2011
On draft. A nice golden beer with a fair amount of white head. Crisp and clean. Very drinkable and refreshing.

Benzai (9782) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2011
Clear golden color, large, pretty vast white head. Smell malts, sweet and a little musty. Taste pretty nice, not too sweet, light sour hint and good carbonation that suits the beer. Medium to full body. Like it pretty much actually.

Rune (9075) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2011
330ml on tap, downstairs at Delirium Café, shared with Finn. Disappearing white head atop of a clear, amber body. Smell of citric fruits with spices behind. The taste is a mix of noble hops, grain, almond oil and spices. Smooth in the mouth. Pretty decent brew (Brussel, 07.05.2011).

FatPhil (10318) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 13, 2011
330ml bottle (S. Brevinga Alus Salons, Riga)
6+ Sweet but very hoppy aroma. I think it’s dense and heavy with aromas, Anna thinks it’s packed full of uplifting aromas. We’ll never agree!
3+ Bold orange, small tight white head. As we add the yeast later, it looks just like honey.
7 Much lighter taste than the aroma. Full hoppy kick. Yeast softens the hops, and makes it more bready, but also a little dirty. Prefer the clear kick.
4 Super soft palate. Finish hoppy and spicy, at least before the yeast.
13 A very solid belgian, an easy drinker that doesn’t show the alcohol at all, though does have an air of not being a chugger due to the sweetness.
