On the basis of ancestral recipes, this relatively light blonde, remains faithful to the principles of the monks who populated the old abbey of Belgian. It refreshes intelligently, and will charm the thirst in hot weather.

Stew41 (2118) - Phuket, - MAR 28, 2005
Dirty orange and quite cloudy. Nose is a little abrupt with some strong spice and corriander notes. More of the spice in the mouth with some noticable bitterness and sour notes. Does feel a little clumsy to be honest and some overt alcohol heat doesn’t help. Interestingly I picked this up for $3.75 at a competitor which gives me some confidence I can sell for close to $3.25, so in the Oz market good value for the style.

Vignale (4124) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2018
Flaska från belgiuminabox. Gyllengul, en del sediment och högt vitt bestående skum. Jästestrig doft med jäst, kryddor, söta äpplen, syltade apelsinskal. Stiltypisk lite lättare men ändå rustik blond som har mycket belgokaraktär från jästen. Snygg och god.

ForlornHope (546) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2017
Bottle at home. It’s a blonde. Some of the yeast kicked up with some fluffy yeast floaters and the head disappears quite quickly. Yeast and burnt sugar aroma. Sweet with a little bit of bitterness. Syrup tastes and a sugary finish. Not great.

adamnowek (3518) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2017
Somewhat clear copper with a thick, dense head. Aroma is malty with a bit of straw. Taste is vanilla, powdered sugar, and some caramel.

3.1
berkshirejohn (6771) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2017
33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring, ABV 6.5%. A hazy amber pour with a billowing cream head; yeasty aroma; soft sweet grainy body; with a yeasty caramel finish. Unexciting, but definitely Belgian.

MrW (771) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2017
33cl bottle. Aroma is nothing that special. A bit grain and hops, might be some citrus fruits. Pours hazy dark golden with a decent head, lacing. Taste again is nothing that special. A bit herbs, grain, dried sweet fruits.

Letdrikkelig blond som ikke gør det store ud af sig. God terrasse øl når den serveres kold lige fra køleskabet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
