3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellow/light orange color, thick head with millions of small bubbles in it. Peppery, fruity and yeasty aroma. Spicy, dry and somehow metallic flavor with a crisp bite. Dry, long lasting finish. Medium bodied. Although I’m not a big fan of Blonds (as far as beer is concerned) I was expecting more from this. Slightly disappointing after 8 & 12.

Pours effervescent and golden with a fizzy off-white head. Smells of a belgian wit - pear, grapes, and spices. Taste is of white grapes with a hint of spice. Very dry, with a long bitter finish. Refreshing.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2009 Light yellow cloudy color, big white lasting head. Spicy, peppery aroma, some citrus comes up too with mild yeast, nice aroma. Medium to full bodied. Strong flavor:starts with spices and fruity tones, ends with strong dryness, bitterness, pepper, hops and yeast. Excellent bite in the end coming also from carbonation. Lasting aftertaste, yeast dominates it with hops too. Excellent blonde!

Bottle. Slightly cloudy, yellow colour. Citrus aroma. Quite good bitterness from start to finish. Aromatic hoppy aftertaste. Reminds me more of an English than a Belgian ale.

Very nice and original blonde! After tasting their "12" and "8", I was wondering how good they would be at making a blonde. I was not disappointed. It hasn’t got much head but it leaves a nice lacing on the glass. The body is bright yellow. The flavour is complex : malty, yeasty, with hints of spices and even flowers. It has along finish, the tastes survives pretty long on the tongue. Excellent beer, too bad it’s so rare.

Bottle at Dulle Griet, Ghent. Extremely delicious Blond Ale - the best of the night! A perfect combination of fruit and sparkle, smoothness and hoppy bitter crunch. Slightly tangy aroma. Bright yellow beer, with a smooth, swampy (small) head and Belgian lacing. Superb stuff.
