Une blonde simple ne peut prtendre la plus haute marche du podium, bien entendu, mais il ya une pratique de la "matire" dans certaines brasseries, qui peut tre intressante. Cest le cas de Palm, qui a de jolies ales par exemple, et qui a mis ici sur une autre stratgie. Dabord la rfrence une abbaye fonde en 1084, ensuite une fermentation haute et refermentation en bouteille, puis lemploi dun bouquet dpices typiquement brugeois, le "gruut". La couleur est dun joli blond dor profond, avec un lger voile de levure. La mousse est blanche et assez crmeuse. Le ptillant est trs fins, et les bulles sont nombreuses et vives. La premire bouche montre une belle bire blonde "de base", avec un joli caractre "vert" dherbes aromatiques. La seconde fait disparatre un peu lpice sous le houblon assez joli. La troisime montre un houblon trs prcis. La longueur amliore lquilibre. La levure est bien intgre. La finale manque sans doute un peu de complexit, mais on ne peut reprocher cette blonde de 6,5 abv de ne pas en offrir plus.

750 ml bottle. Pours deep golden with thin white, long lasting head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of barnyard yeast, ripe pears and biscuit malt. Body is full and smooth. Taste is very spicy, fruity with biscuit malt and caramel in the background. Finish is long and spicy. Excellent brew.

Slightly yeasty, rich malt. Crystal. Beautiful clear golden. Really soft texture. Good carbonation, really smooth with a nice balance between sweetness and the alcohol

corked popped and released odors of caramel with a hint of citrus. Gold in its appearance with light minimal head. Medium sweet hints with minimal suggestions of bitterness. A refreshing tasty treat.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/6/2014. Pours slightly cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger foamy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of pear, apple, lemon, orange peel, banana, honey, bread, clove, pepper, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of fruity/spicy ester notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of pear, apple, lemon, orange peel, bread, honey, banana, clove, pepper, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, citrus, bread, honey, clove, pepper, light banana, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Belgian blond ale. All around nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy ester flavors with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. No complaints at all really; a very enjoyable offering.

Light amber, bubbly with mdium white head. Mild yeasty aroma (flower notes). Caronated sour - bit sweet taste followed by enough strong remaining bitterness. Some fruity yeast notes.

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2012
On cask in wetherspoons Aberdeen and only 6%. Compared to the normal keg, this was a revelation. Poured much as usual, golden with a healthy white head, but the aroma was more pronouncedly fruity. Flavour was of a full bodied ale with huge amounts of raisin over a nice biscuity malt. Nice dry refreshing aftertaste.

KnutAlbert (6740) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2010
Golden beer, slightly hazy, fimr white head. Not any strong aroma. Peaches, oranges, rhubarb, refreshing beer with long lingering sourness. Not the most sophisticated, perhaps, but a very decent beer.
