beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy Golden Orange color. Very fluffy off white head. Nose was heavy in both wheat and estery notes. Very floral as well. Sweet flavors of juicy fruit and sugar, mixed with slight bitter finish. Very mild carbonation. Very smooth, and rich.

Jabic (661) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 18, 2017
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 (4118) - 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.

3.4
Tezminator (293) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2017
Aroma: quite faint, little banana and spice aroma. Banana, cloves, lemon. Some minerals. It is a nice Belgian, but pretty basic.

3.9
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.

3.3
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.
