COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What a fun blonde beer this is. The nose is deliciously malty. The overall flavour is fruity, with hints of sweetness and a warm alcohol glow, which tapers off into a slightly bitter finish. We launched this classic beer in 1983, making it our oldest high-fermentation beer, which is re-fermented in the bottle.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 7, 2009
In the 375 mL bottle from HyVee CB. Pours a hazy dark gold with a medium white head that hangs around for a long time. The malty aroma has verbena and medicinal candy aromas. The taste is a mid-range Belgian with some easy to drink pleasantries of a poor-man’s Chimay white. OK, but no all star.

Shag (3001) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 24, 2009
A dark golden appearance with a large frothy white head and good lacing. The aroma contains some spice along with lemons, hay, and grassy notes. Achoooo! Excuse me I have allergies. The flavor contains some yeasty notes along with lemons, some mediciney notes as well. No sign of alcohol flavor in this. The finish is somewhat sour. Overall this was not that great, very average Belgian.

bellmyer (41) - EAST MOLINE, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Pour is a cloudy gold with a big poofy head that falls into a small head. Nose is spicy and yeasty, with some fruit and hay. Taste is much of the same but with an odd something I can’t really put my tongue on. Not a big fan of that odd something. Good lacing. All in all a decent brew, but there are better Belgian ales.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Cloudy brownish gold with a thick bubbly head. Nose of yeast and straw, some subtle floral hops. The flavor is mildly fruity with a soft yet actively carbonated mouthfeel. Tasty. Overall, a solid Belgian.

beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Sampled 12/20/2008. This Belgian Strong Ale pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 33cl stubby bottle. Large sized white foamy head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet with orange and floral hops. A medium bodied Belgian Strong Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. Lots of bright yeasts and esters. The hops are floral and slightly spicy. Nice balance. Decent carbonation. A very drinkable, yet kind of run of the mill, Belgian Strong Ale; which is NOT a bad thing in my opinion. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2008
11.2 ounce bottle from Bottleworks in Seattle, WA--Bubbly copper-body with a thick dirty white head. Creamy saccharine nose. Nutty, mildly floral. Creamy all the way through. Not a lot of bite in the finish but extremely drinkable and flavorful.

3.4
urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2008
I cannot say that I found deep complexity here or any particular flavor that will stay with me the rest of my life, but I rather liked the mouthfeel and the softness of this beer. Nothing at all objectionable. In fact, the whole experience was actually quite nice, really.
