COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gerardus Blond is een sprankelend bitter kloosterbier met een kruidige smaakaanzet. Specerijen en hop geven dit licht zoete bier zijn rijke, ronde smaakbeleving. We brouwen het op basis van een recept van de paters van het Redemptoristenklooster in Wittem. Een deel van de omzet van Gerardus Blond is bestemd voor het behoud van dit prachtige klooster. Bezoek het eens en kom dan ook naar onze brouwerij voor een proeverij.

Salmaneser (157) - BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2017

tricksta_p (4338) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is floral, sweet malt, soft fruits, apples, notes of bubblegum, cleaning products and some yeast. Flavour is a bit cloying sweetness and light bitter. Body is medium. Yikes, not good at all, way too sweet with an overdone floral aroma that leans towards chemical cleaning products.

Svesse (8484) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2016
(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 16 Sep 2016) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with canned fruit, peaches, orange and a touch of marzipan. Malty, fruity taste with notes of citrus, bread, apples, gooseberries, marzipan and a sweetish finish with a fairly low bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. A bit sweet and sticky, but fairly tasty. Quite enjoyable.

DSG (13956) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle sample at Dancing Camel. Thanks kerenmk. Clear golden. Aroma of fruity esters (overripe banana, apple), and mild spicy phenols. Sweetish flavor with fruity esters (banana, apple), mild spiciness, and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied.

kerenmk (4664) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle shared at the dancing camel. Thanks Vipinvelp! Clear gold. Candy, some yeast in the nose, sweet, a little alcoholic. Light-to-medium body, bubblegum-like finish, lightly fizzy.

maekchu (3816) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Yeasty nose, with baby farts, apples, and small spiciness. Clear medium amber/straw color. Yeast, mild fruitiness (apples and peaches), maybe some berries, a metallic note, and a thin bitter finish. Thin-medium body. Okay. Fruity but ultimately bland and uninteresting.

Pongauer (85) - Maassluis, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2016
An okay blond beer. Not very special, but not bad either. Drank a 33cl bottle at home.
