Also known as La Binchoise Blonde with a 6.2% abv. Available with two labels - Blonde in Wallonia and Fakir in Flanders and Canada. Though it is also relabelled as La Molagnarde Blonde. This is a particularly good blonde beer with lots of strong, clean citric hop character throughout. The orange peel that is included amongst the ingredients tends to only come through in the nose. We find this beer is great when served straight from the fridge as a little of the freshness is lost as it warms up.

Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy golden with a nice fluffy head. Fresh and fruity - almost perfumy - nose. Sweet malt and again almost perfumy flavours - there’s gotta be a shipload of coriander in here. But pefectly balanced by some hops in the finish. A great summers beer. 030398

madmitch76 (25009) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2010
5th October 2008. Cloudy amber beer - doesn’t look like a blonde! Slightly tart start leads to a dry but creamy mid. A little caraway in there as well. Easy drinking.

fiulijn (20806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 15, 2005
Blond color. The aroma is simple, with some coriander and lemon peel. Very dry mouthfeel (also because of an aggressive bitterness), poor malt, spicy (coriander); gets smoother and sweeter when warmer. Unbalanced.

Theydon_Bois (19798) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Tap at Eulogy Tavern, Philly - as Eulogy Busty Blonde, 30/11/13. Had presumed this was a re-badge but no free Wifi to check. Had this before but new for the rate so job done ! Lightly hazed golden with a moderate white covering. Nose is Belgian yeast esters, citric fruit, caramel, spice, straw, farmyard, light brett notes. Taste comprises citric dipped straw, bitter orange, yeast esters, caramel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet and lightly tarte fruit notes in the finish with a pinch of spice. Solid Belgian affair.
