Poured translucent gold, slight white head. Aroma of yeast spice, citric, flora, and candi - overall sweet. Flavor is sweet mellifluous malt, hay, and apple-citrus which i would assume is the hops. Palate was decent, smooth but not viscous, and not overly carbonated. Nothing offensive or bland in the flavor, could session it.

11.2oz bottle poured into a mug. GB pours just like a macro brew, corn yellow with a mediumj-sized head. It does leave some nice lacing though. Just judging by the appearance and the low alcohol for the style, I have low expectations though. The aroma is quite sweet like mild pineapple or acidic peaches. There might be a touch of raisin as well. The body is light to medium. The taste is sweet and very unlike a tripel. It tastes like it smells with pineapple being predominate. There is a touch of honey taste to counter the pineapple. I am not impressed with this beer to be honest.

sebletitje (9954) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2009
pours golden with white head. Aroma is fruity - raisins and yeasty, very sweet nose, almost banana with light herbal - vegetable hops. Taste, yeasty and hoppy. Smooth with a very honesy like mouthfeel, enjoyable palate with a light bitter aftertaste. Subtle fruity tones of citrus and orange coupled with some sweetness.

i think, like their dubbel, grimbergens blonde stands out from other abbey ales in that it isn’t a very big beer. It can be a let down if you let it be, but going expecting this of grimbergen, i think it is excellent. It may not hav a huge set of complex yeast flavors but it does have some nie fruit aromas and it finishes super clean and refreshing. would be a great session beer, how often do you hear that about a tripel

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 28, 2008
Draught. Pours golden, with decent and durable head. Honey aroma, with citrus notes, and similar on the palate, though with a slightly metallic hint. Decent enough, but nothing exceptional.

KyotoLefty (10106) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2008
500 ml can. Medium gold color, head disappeared quickly. Sweet, slightly fruity aroma. Mostly malt. Taste is similar. This is not all that interesting. A bit strong, decent hopping and ok fruit, but pretty bland. OK, but nothing special and not much different from other mass-produced Abbey blondes.

Golden color with a nice White head that start pretty and goes fast, keeping a lace. Aroma is fruity with citric notes like Orange. Flavor is a little bit citric and sweet medium carbonation, very tasteful. Mouthfeel is dry and long..
