Pale cloudy golden, small head. A bit fruit, some banana, yeast. I miss some citric freshness. Slightly bitter, some sweetness. Soft carbonated, medium body. There are better Belgian Blondes than this. Hamirubi (592) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2017
33cl bottle at home (28 IV 2017). This six percent alcohol Belgian ale is a true classic among the blonde abbey beers. The appearance is quite straightforward, with a rather clear, vivid looking orange to amber brew. The collar is somewhat thick and white at first, very frothy and snowlike, but dimishes soon afterwards. Appealing at the first glance, and with a Belgian-alcohol and -grains flavoured aroma as well. The nose has some interesting features to offer. There are some very present citrus notes in there, with spring green vegetables or even aubergines and fresh, crispy cucumber peel. The malts aren’t omnipresent, but surely have their deliberate spot on the background. The Maredsous yeast strains are - thank God - not as classic and thus dust and dirtlike. This is one of the smoother Belgian abbeys on the market - maybe a that underappreaciated. This ale starts with some lemon features, complementing light sour notes. One can perhaps spot some peachy flavours in the beginning as well. These features stand with the sweet dashes. The malt backbone is firm without really being overpowered or overwhelming. The alcohol body actually is pretty weak - it is only present in the long, warm aftertaste. This good quenching, smooth drinking ale has quite a silk-like, smooth tongue. It almost represents a creamy, vanilla or wood character: But let me be clear, these tones are very subtle and maybe farfetched too. Because the palate in itself is not that colourful: Of course, this Maredsous blonde 6% ABV stands far from the complexity of the tripel version. Hence, the mouthfeel lacks some building stones to truly offer a variety of flavours. But it is an easy to drink, quite straightforward and smooth ale without true overwhelming punches and thus pretty classic. djfreeart (24) - FRANCE - APR 22, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2017 Belle robe blonde, mousse douce et généreuse. Goût légèrement acide. Au final agréable pour une blonde, sans plus. wlajwl (6950) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2017
Aroma and flavor is malts, Belgian yeast, fruit/dark fruit in the middle and a slightly spicy/sweet/mildly alcoholic finish.

Gyllen klar med hvit skum som henger. Aroma frukt gjær koriander. Smak søt frukt banan. jampura (195) - FINLAND - APR 7, 2017
Kirpsakka, aromikas ja samea. Sitrusta ja kuivahedelmiä. Alkoholi hieman puskee läpi mausta. Sopii hyvin tämmöiseen puolipilviseen kevätpäivään paistettujen muikkujen kera. Ysok02 (1714) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2017
Robe blonde, mousse crémeuse. Nez sur le fruit et la farine, assez peu complexe. Bouche fraîche et acidulée, bulle agréable, finale sur l’amertume. Une bouche agréable, un nez un peu en retrait. Evilman (269) - Taverny, FRANCE - MAR 10, 2017
A good, soft one! The triple one is by far my favorite, but this one has not to be overlooked. Sweet taste, floral aroma and clear golden color. Similar in taste to the stronger variants but obviously smoother due to its rather low alcohol level. This is a very good one for any occasion, for a refreshing drink or to go along with a good meal.
