I gave my girlfriend a sip of this and
she pronounced it 'stankwater'. I
wouldn't go that far but I think you
can see where this is going. This was
really rather bitter, and frankly that
kind of strong hop bitterness is really
out of place in a Belgian ale. Even forgetting
what it was supposed to be, I didn't really
like it. Unbalanced with no redeeming qualities.
Copperish color not indicative of a Blond ale. Panzuriel (2324) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2002
Mostly light and inoffensive aroma. Fair taste finishing with a little tartness in a bad way. Not a great beer. RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - AUG 24, 2003
Smmoth on the palate and very refreshing. Some sediment. I didn't find it as bitter as some raters. Nice finish. Good beer overall. edden (925) - cow- lumbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2003

light tan-orange color. wheat and honey to the nose. slight amount of lacing. tastes include wheat, slightly sweet-tea and a tinge of lime. light and refreshing. great on a hot day of summer.
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2003 Light salty pretzel aroma. Nice large bubble head. Medium brown in color with more suspended floaters (yeast) than I have ever seen in a beer. Spice up front in the taste but falls off sharpley in the finish. Good but not great.

Easy to drink and enjoyable. It is a good belgian ale, but there are a lot more better ones out there. seuinoz (260) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2002
it was ok
nothing to brag about here
flavor is there but lacks some

My bottle was labeled "All Saints Belgian Golden Ale": I presume we're talking about the same beer, but clearly I liked this a *lot* better than any other rater so far. Northernbrewer (151) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2002
dry and earthy. Not much else, but drinkable............................... Drew Blood (151) - Mt.Prospect, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2001
BNot that good. I would not call this a blond by any strech of the imagination. It does have a nice sour note but overall, rather underwhelming. I will celler it anyway and hop for some improvement.
