COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In this bottle is Belgian brewery know-how dating back to 1867 - the year the recipe was created. Its a crisp, golden ale brewed using only water, malted barley, hops, and yeast. The dry-hopping procedure, in which uncooked hop heads are added after the brewing process, gives this beer its unique floral aroma and taste.

nealblind (1684) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Clear gold pour nil head. Smells slightly yeasty mostly like barley and pale lager hops. Tastes like a beany pale lager. Overhopped, watery, and barely drinkable.

tightslice (1074) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Bottle from Trader Joes in San Carlos, CA. Aroma is corn, moldy corn, apple juice, musty apple juice. Taste is bland, like a commercial beer without any of the crispness. No Belgian spirit to speak of.

luttonm (5035) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle in Seattle, from TJs of course. Creamy head, clear deep gold. Veggie-egg funk, vaguely Belgian yeast. Nothing precise, a bit too veggie sweet lager flavor. Chalky malt. Aye, really dont like this. Sweet cardboard.

Faint Belgian yeast aroma. Body is lager strains with a floral yeast that is a bit off. Finish is a little harsh.

Quite light and lager-like, though hints of Belgian come through. Earthy, trashy, watery. A sweet malt underneath.

Suttree (6145) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2015
yellow, fizzy, with a very loose white head. Smells very toasty and yeasty. Taste is sweet, surprisingly boozy for 6%, plus some unpleasant sourness. Some grassy hops in the finish. All in all, pretty much a mess.

jamesewelch (259) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 29, 2015
From 12oz bottle, purchased at Trader Joes, around $6-7 for 6 pack, poured into Belgian glass

Aroma: sweet, spices,

Appearance: golden, crystal clear, white head, good lacing

Taste: light sweet, medium bitter

Palate: light body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, lingering bitter finish

Overall: Very crisp with some hops. Very nice initial aroma which fades after a minute or two. Taste is somewhat spicy. Very clear - crystal clear body. Overall, not a bad beer. Easy drinking, highly digestible. A tad bitter than I expected for Belgian Blonde, but not overly so.
