A smooth taste. Malty, nutty softness followed by the roundess of tropical fruit and then a dry, light bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth, round mouth-feel. A bright, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a large white head that sticks around. Aroma is mostly of pilsner malts, with just a touch of light fruit. Yes, this is very consistent with the dubbel and tripel in that it’s just a smaller version; light fruits and spice in flavor. Authentically Belgian with the yeast strain. Spritzy mouthfeel, medium density. I like it. Nothing new; pretty much in line with all the other smaller Belgians, and I’m perfectly okay with that. Overall, good to very good.

On tap at the Cheeky Monk in Denver. Clear golden color with a large, lasting, creamy white head and some lacing. Aroma is pale malt, banana, and yeast. Flavor is sweet pale malt, fruity esters - banana, apricot, and pear, spice, and Belgian yeast. Body and carbonation are medium.

Had on tap in a tulip glass. Solid white head on this one that lingers and laces a tiny. Mainly light fruity esters on the nose and a big sweet entry to boot. Goes down smooth, medium-high carbonation.

Pale orange body with a thick lasting white head. Light aroma. Malt, pineapple, some spice. Nice, full body with decent carbonation. Fairly sweet flavor with pineapple, malt, and yeast. There is a nice spicy finish and am alcohol warming aftertaste. Not bad.

DeanF (2456) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2009
Very fruity aroma, but a little too strong, comes across as slightly syrupy. Looks okay poured into a chalice, though the colour looks a little fake and there’s really not enough head for a "Belgian Blonde". Taste is nice however, lots of citrus notes and hops, and a dry finish. The syrupiness on the nose didn’t really materialize in the flavour, which is nice. Pretty good, not great.

Amber color with a nice white head. Typical Belgian Blonde in my eyes. Nothing special. Smells mildly sweet. Tastes mildly sweet.

ska (230) - ITALY - SEP 5, 2009
75cl bottle (buyed 11 months ago), hazy pale orange colour, huge and lasting white head, malt aroma with spices, yeast and grass, balanced flavor with citrus notes, medium body, not interesting finish but some spices aftertaste, not bad with steak, mushrooms and cheese, alone is a little bit poor for a belgian ale

3.6
Drake (13726) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2009
330 mL bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville, VA. Pours a hazy orange yellow color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is bread, pineapple, pear and yeast. Taste is pineapple, peach, bread, yeast and spice. Full bodied and strongly carbonated.

3.8
SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 28, 2009
33cl bottle. Dark gold-light orange color with a lasting fluffy white head. Nice fruity and yeasty aroma with pear, lemon, and bubble-gum augmented by faint hops and pale malt. The flavor is light and fruity with a nice hop bite and spicy flavor. Dry in the finish with a lighter body and ample carbonation. Definitely a nice Belgian blond ale, with malt, hops, and yeast working in harmony. Dry, light, and eminently drinkable.
