Bottle. Poured a hazy amber with a small particles of yeast sediment floating throughout with an average size white frothy head and had excellent lacing. The aroma had a strong scent of a flowery hops, light grainy malts and a mild soapy yeast odor with notes of citrus. It tasted moderatley bitter and slightly acidic at first then mellowed into a smooth bitter yeasty flavor with notes of citrus that lingered on the palate for a nice while. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a nice lively carbonation. Overall an outstanding Abbey ale.

Bottle at home. Hazy light golden with fluffy white head. Sweet grains, paper, soft yeast, lemon, weird metallic bitter notes, light nectarine, dough, sweet biscuits. Medium sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied with strong carbonation. Decent beer, though the metallic finish is a bit disappointing.

Ysok02 (1048) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2016
Robe blonde, belle mousse crémeuse. Nez qui allie des notes de houblons, de malt et de fruits sur un fond de céréales. Bouche agréable, fruitée, équilibrée, souple, pas très longue mais raffraîchissante. Un bière de soif

[backlog] 05-05-16 / bottle in Brussels. Boring. Malty, medium sweet. Carbonated. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 1.75/5

La Val-Dieu Blonde es una cerveza fresca y ligera, con una cabeza de espuma persistente y con un carácter fuerte. Es muy digestiva y puede tomarse también como aperitivo. En boca es refrescante y desarrolla un carácter agradable y amargo al final.
