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.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, - JUN 2, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) He’s back!!! The cute, little,fat, beer-drinking monk on the St. Idesbald labels. Golden, rather light in body, sweetish, pleasant and very easy to drink. The kind of beer that wouldn’t offend even the typical pils-drinker. Only here you get something a lot more interesting. 070996

dEnk (3463) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2014
Bottle @ home. Aroma is fruity esters, some light hop notes, light metallic yeasty note and quite some spices/herbs. Flavour is very spicy almost minty, some malt sweetness and faint hop, but mostly spices. Too much imho.

gwillrich (139) - São José dos Campos, BRAZIL - APR 3, 2014
Cerveja estilo abadia sem muita expressão. Boa formação de espuma e boa retenção. Amargor e sabor de malte levemente adocicado.

erickok (3161) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 8, 2014
Light misty body with off white bubbly head, looks okay. Simplistic malt bill, some caramel, honey and pie. Not much character, not much yeast power and certainly very full little hop. Sweet body, average bubbly mouthful, simplistic, okay but forgettable. (33cl bottle from Cave Gambrinus)

AtronSeige (459) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 14, 2014
Aroma: cinnamon, ginger, barnyard, citrus, Appearance: Light copper body with large floaters. Medium, white, long lasting, head. Lacing. Flavour: Ginger, light sourness, bread, bit of a tingle/burn. light grainy, Palate: Floaters can be felt. Medium body, high carbonation with sting. Overall: The ginger was a nice surprise, but the floaters are off-putting. 330 ml bottle, poured. 18A. Belgian Blond Ale

minutemat (880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
330ml bottle from Ibis Grimbergen. Spices, yeast, fairly sweet, but ultimately rather thin on taste and a bit disappointing.

SarkyNorthener (1414) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle from national brewery centre, Burton. Orange amber beer with floaters and a residual head. Aroma of spices, yeast and orange citrus. Taste is cloves, sweetish malts, citrus, yeast and some dry hop. Good beer.

EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2013
Blonde dorée, pétillance moyenne, mousse tombe rapidement. Métallique, toute en malts doux avec une petite amertume de passage ainsi que quelques notes fruitées et épicées. Assez (si pas trop) sèche.
