Pours dark golden with lasting lacing. Aroma of fruit and some hops. Light on the palate, but this adds to the drinkability. I did get some metallic aftertastes though. Finishes abrubtly. Still I could drink several of these and enjoy it. A simple, drinkable, light bodied brew, with a little more alcohol then your average session beer.

Draft. Kind of weak for a tripel. Sweet with not a lot of character there. Ok at best.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2010 Clear deep golden yellow with an off-white topper that fades slowly and leaves wispy lacing. Aroma is very bready and full of fruity Belgian yeast and malt. Taste is grainy with yeast, malt and mild (almost artificial) sweetness. Fairly easy drinking but nothing spectacular.

4-3-4-2-8 03-16-08. At Three cellars tasting. Blonde in color. Yeast & Malt in aroma & taste. Mild bitter finish. Nothing special here.

Grimbergen Blonde is a nice blonde ale. However, it is very simple. Nothing about this beer is really special or different and while it is drinkable, it is a bit boring.

A Tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee WI. This one didnt leave much of an impression. Good but nothing to speak of.

Hopdup (70) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Bottle. Poured a golden yellow with a thick white head that goes from 3 fingers to a thin head that lingers throughout. It has the aroma of lemon zest and yeast. The taste is slightly citrus and yeasty. There is less spice and complexity then is expected from the aroma. Its an ok beer but not one I would crave.

Pours a nice off-white and creamy head. Body is orange-yellow and slightly hazy with medium carbonation. Starts sweet and finishes with a nice orange peel and coriander flavor. A slight alcohol taste throughout. Very refreshing.

Pours bright golden with a mostly receding white head. Aroma of candy sugar, bubble gum, banana, and herbs. Taste is sweet malt, cookie, estery pear and banana with light herbal notes. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with lively carbonation. Perhaps a bit simplistic, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
