1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours golden with a white head. Low aroma, some hops. Not much more to say about this beer.
Ar: Light malt and a touch of nougat; black pepper, lemon peel, and apricot. Ap: Coper-gold and clear; medium-small very-light tan head with low retention, settling into a thin but solid film of foam accompanied by some low clinging peaks on the glass sides. T: Peach, clove, and black pepper up front; a touch of anise and grains of paradise; orange peel; nearly no sweetness; chalk and a medium bitterness; hop flavor is herbs and peppery moss; clean alcohol heat with a bit of rosiness; finish is bitters and lemon peel. P: Medium-light body with very high carbonation; finish is dry. O: A pleasant and flavorful, yet very quaffable, Belgian blonde ale; nuanced fruit and spice flavors; perfect mouthfeel--substantial yet easy-drinking. maekchu (4024) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 3, 2017
Bottle from Liquor Mountain. Light pale malt nose, Belgian yeast, esters, bread, and a touch of citrus. Hazy light orange/gold color with a fluffy off-white head. Sweet and malty, some honey or maybe candi sugar, thin bit of citrus, very light banana, spice, yeast, and mild bitter finish. Medium body. Not really a blonde ale. Okay. bartlebier (4117) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2017
(backlog BL sampler 2017, 33cl) - Bref: there's a typical Duvel-Moortgat, almost tightlipped puritan dryness to this macro Belgian Ale, fusing a controlled yeast and hop bitterness that probably works more effectively in an industrial pale lager than a honeymalt ale. - - Aroma of sulphurous yellow apple peels and hayish grains, underbaked apple pie coated with honey, dusted with white pepper. Oddly curtailed flavours of semi-esters (some green banana, some apple & pear) on wet gras wet plywood. Liquid tastier sawdust, with a bitter yeasty twist. Might revisit on tap. - - There is a host of Best Of Belgian aromas in this "sessioner" , most of them curtailed and failing to ignite on the metallic palate. Frère Atout, the stainless candisugar brigade has been interfering with your "ancient recipe". Piepenhenrich (1171) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
A Blonde the way I like it. Golden color, rich head,rich taste, mainly around grainy and yeasty flavors, but accompanied by some light fruity notes and a gentle bitterness. Give me more of that. Luneylane (226) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - SEP 13, 2017
A bottle from the basement of 101. Aroma: freshly baked bread, hay. Appearance: slightly hazy light amber, 3 mm. of bubbly white froth. Palate: medium-bodied yet thick, average carbonation. Long and complex, flavoursome sweet finish. Taste: extremely well-balanced medium sweet and bitter. Floral notes with a hint of vanilla. A really good blond.

Aroma: quite faint, little banana and spice aroma. Banana, cloves, lemon. Some minerals. It is a nice Belgian, but pretty basic. Schnabelhund (108) - TAIWAN - AUG 31, 2017
Maredsous Blond pours a hazy amber color and its white head with big, soapy bubbles is long-lived and leaves beautiful lacing behind. The nose has notes of sourdough yeast and beautifully fruity citrus and muscat. The attack is semi-sweet with Belgian yeast and the mid-palate goes through a transition from lemon and tangerine to white grapes before the semi-dry, clean finish in which a note of grape seeds and the heat from the alcohol and a faint hint of bitterness come through. This brew is an excellent example of easily drinkable yet sophisticated beer. Inoven (859) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2017
Flesje thuis gedronken. Goudgeel oranje-achtig bier met stevig wit schuim. Aroma en smaak van sinaasappelschil en koriander. Nasmaak is iets bitter. Maverick34 (3313) - New York, USA - AUG 27, 2017
