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.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, - OCT 2, 2012
500ml bottle pours a hazy golden color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruity with a light citrus note. Taste is light fruity sweet with a citrusy bitter finish. Light to medium body with lots of carbonation providing a nice tingle on the tongue. A nicely done Belgian strong ale, but there are better ones to be had.

MrW (759) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2017 Bottle 33cl at home. Aroma light floral, grass, apple, wet towel. Pours yellow clear, nice sparkling, thick foam head, lacing. Taste is light bitter, flowers, some grain. High carbo, light aftertaste.

hednom (193) - Messelbroek, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2017
Bottle 33 cl, pours a golden colour with a Fast vanishing white head. Fruity aroma and taste. An average beer, nothing special.

Mpuntmuts (334) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2017
Yellow almost clear pour. Belgian yeast, banana, cloves and herbs/spices for aroma. Watery and kind of flat taste. Some banana peel and sugary sweet aftertaste. Thin to medium bodied and high in carbonation. Meh, too high in co2 and not a lot going on.

nathanvc (754) - Brugge, BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2017
Pours hazy golden with a lasting, foamy, white head. The aroma contains yeast, grain, bread, hops & spices, apple and alcohol (jenever). It tastes medium grainy bitter and very light fruity sweet; the finish is dry, yeasty, alcoholic, but short & metallic. Medium body, slick/watery texture, lively carbonation. Not enjoyable - I'll stick with Ename.

Holmen1 (6567) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2017
0,33 flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, hjemme en lørdagskveld: klar gylden med flott skum som varer. Krydder, gjær og syltet frukt i anslaget. Krydder, epler, muskat, maltsødme og overmodne bær (stikkelsbær?) i smaken. Ganske mild bitterhet med en fruktig og lett krydret avslutning. Lettdrikkelig, men jeg er usikker på om den gjester til tranfigelse.

Piepenhenrich (1246) - Steinbach, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2017
Good Belgian Blonde, relatively strong, rather classic, not exactly outstanding.

Davros (3309) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2017
Pours gold with a large lasting head.
Nose shows banana, pear, peach, apple and Belgian spicy phenolic notes.
Flavours include banana, apple, pear, grapes and soft bready malt. Refreshing.
Carbonation is much too high.

beer-yum (1900) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 1, 2017
Restrained aroma in a yellow straw pour. Laid back hop malt balance is maybe a little sweeter than usual but eventually the expected flavours of a Belgian golden ale becomes apparent.

Luneylane (249) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - MAY 24, 2017
A bottle from Beers of Belgium drunk at Dad’s place while home on leave. Aroma: yeast, tangerines. Appearance: clear golden, pours a mountainous head when served at room temperature, rapidly dissipating to 5 mm. of bubbles. Palate: medium-bodied and slick, average carbonation, sweet and fruity at the finish. Taste: medium sweet, alcohol well-hidden, I would like a more bitter kick at the end.
