GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Pours golden w/ a tall, semi cremy froth. Superb hangtine reducing slowly to a full canopy and a fluffy, sticky ring. Mild aromas of crisp lemony citrus. Medium nectar w/ ample carbonation and very expansive on the palate. Bright and crisp, this brew is very refreshing. Well balanced w/ mild flavors of banana, citrus, and a touch of cola. The finish is bittered nicely w/ a twig of acidity to cleans the palate.

watchnerd (22) - San Mateo, California, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Run of the mill Belgian style blond, with all the expected characteristics (yeasty, citrusy, quaffable) of the style, but not particularly noteworthy in any way. A good basic stock blond for every day drinking when you don’t need to impress anyone. If you’re in North America, one of the better domestic blondes may be just as serviceable, and cheaper.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2007
330 ml bottle. Golden clear colour. Very tall white head that clings to the glass. Some floates. Extremely high carbonation level. Crisp yeasty hop aroma. Belgian character. Hints of citrus. Rounded estery flavour with rich malts. Oily texture and not as dry as one would expect. Nice blond, though not complex, but still quite something of its own.

Aguada, metalizada, leve aroma e sabor de malte e cravo. Carbonatação média e final fraco.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - NOV 27, 2007
Garrafa. Coloração dourada levemente turva, com creme branco nem consistente, nem persistente. Carbonatação média. Falta um pouco de sabor. Levemente frutada e floral. Falta personalidade. Aroma muito bom, mas não se desprende facilmente. Sabor não marcante.

400 Gekocht op vakantie in de Ardennen. Ik had meer verwacht omdat de tripel erg goed was. Maar deze blonde Belg kan er mee door.

malrubius (2728) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 2, 2007
11.2 ounce bottle in Duvel glass. Hazy pale yellow with lasting white head and nice lace. Nice aroma with citrus, spice , and yeast. Very dry with faint malt sweetness and crisp bitterness. Medium light body and medium carbonation. Enjoyable though not spectacular. Would not mind having again

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 330 ml bottle. Misty yellow color. Big coarse greyish head. Limited aroma of sweet citrus and unripe banana. Light wheaty, light fruity and very mildly hopped flavors. Light- bodied for the style. Crisp, with a little watered down mouthfeel . Short acidic finish. An absolutely drinkable beer, but lacks character.
