Blond beer looks a bit like white beer. Grassy hoppy sour.
Probably excellent in summer when you’re thirsty. seynie (408) - Tienen, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2016 Nice gold with a fizzy top, lots of residue. Typical Belgian blond, yeasty, some earth. Short finish. -- second tasting went better. Quite clear pale yellow, between lager and white Ysok02 (1564) - Mons, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2015
Robe blonde, mousse de persistance moyenne, Nez houblonné et levuré sur un léger fond minéral. Bouche fraîche et amère, bulle peu persistante, finale acidulée. Une bière de soif. Shark_Pants (743) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2015
Pours cloudy golden with nice large pillowy white head. Peppery aroma, with lightly toasted bread and honey. The taste has the funky belgian yeast expected, along with floral honey, toasted bread and a light grassy hop bitterness. Solid beer. Muggus69 (2494) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2015
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector BB 07/2017
Labelled as "Goliath blonde"
Pale blonde beer, slight haze, pours a rather big creamy white head.
Nose somewhat subdued - white pepper & clove phenolics, light grainy bready malt, some light ripe pear-like fruit esters.
Medium bodied, lively carbonation.
Flavour is bready, slightly spicy/peppery, notes of pear, grainy/husky cereals, reasonable bitterness.

33cl bottle at home, had it as "Goliath blonde". This is a sharp malt and yeast flavoured citrus blonde with a huge white, long lasting collar. The nose has some penetrant zeste or citrus features too. The taste is penetrant and sharp too, with a tiny, yet very unpleasant hint of dishwashing soap. Besides that, the lime and cinnamon flavours are nice enough to make it a decent brew. The ending has a lovely bitter and warming touch. jamaty (2146) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2015 Amarillenta pálida, ligeramente turbia, y un dedo de espuma. Agradable aroma dulce. Muy agradable también en boca, frutal, citrica. Final muy seco. Muy bebible. Salmaneser (163) - BELGIUM - MAY 24, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home, Goliath blond. Golden yellow, almost white beer, small white head. Refreshing aroma, grassy with citrus, bit sour. Taste is well balanced between bitter and sweet. PotjeBier (3348) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
On tap @ Restaurant Barbeau, Sippenaeken. Yellow/strawblonde color, hazy. Dense snow white head, sticking to the glass. Aroma’s: grain, grass. Retronasal: grains, malts, fruity, a bit sweet spices. Flavor is dry and fruity, almost sourish, light sweetness, light spices. Light to medium bodied. Long finish, slightly dry, but hardly any bitterness. Decent enough. imdownthepub (14555) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2015
Bottled, 330ml as ’Goliath’ from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Gold with white head. Quite a flowery, herby start to this, Belgian yeast notes also to the fore with a slight banana hint. A little thinner than expected with a simple finish. It’s okay.
