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.

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.

Een lekker blond biertje dat vlot wegdrinkt maar toch ook goed wat smaak heeft.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 13, 2014
Keg at Bruxx. Pours hazy Golden with pillowy White head. Spicy, hoppy and yeasty with a characteristic Belgian dryness. Did a job but a bit of a pauper among princes.

Ragnampiza (372) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUN 20, 2014
330 ml bottle. Golden yellow, pretty clear, with a hige, frothy, not too persistent bright white head. Spicy and fruity aroma, mainly peach, apple and banana. Fruit esters, light cinnamon and alchool. So fizzy, it’s like drinking air! Mild peppery notes in the mouth, slightly yeasty, solid bitterness, the alchool is well hidden. Grassy, herbal and fruity aftertaste. Lively carbonation, light body, creamy texture. Not bad, but the extremely high carbonation is totally off putting for me.

Quite average Belgian blond beer, but enjoyable nevertheless. Refreshing brew.

MaartenRF10 (1584) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2014
Iets troebel oranjegoud van kleur, witte kraag. Aroma en smaak van gist, sinaasappel, koekjes. Vrij fruitig. Net blondje.

dEnk (3775) - 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 (150) - 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 (3491) - 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)
