Not sure exactly where the head was going on this one, but it was moving fast...held barely at first as pure white, but then disappeared rapidly. Lightly murky marigold color.
Yeasty and a good deal of sweetness; lots of white grapes in the aroma. Quite sweet in the aroma actually and very fruit driven. Missing out on any hops.
Not nearly as sweet in the taste as in the aroma, but still thereabouts. Bit of candied sugar and a very light yeastiness; not very complex and pretty straightforward with the light fruitiness...back to the white grapes, and perhaps a hint of passion fruit. Hops are AWOL, and the MF is very light verging on thin with subdued carbonation, but still syrpupy somehow. Not really great drinking, not as refreshing as hoped and certainly on the sweeter side for the style. Not my favorite from the brewery.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
A: Small stubborn head. High effervescence. Golden colour.
S: Medium intensity. Beautiful perfumy aroma of bubblegum, roses, clove and banana. No hop character.
T: Taste is of medium intensity. Strong clove notes upfront but not shadowing of other expected aromatics like banana and bubblegum.
M: Low bitterness. Finishes sweet-ish. Very high carbonation. Soapy texture. Medium to medium full body.
O: An agreeable blonde with a sophisticated aroma but questionable texture and average taste.

On-tap. La Trappe Tasting chalice glass. Bright golden color, clear appearance. White froth, close crown showing modest retention. Aromas of Belgian yeast, pale malts & floral notes, hints of bread, slight citric, alcohol, nectar & hops to the nose. Gentle & crispy upfront displays delicate citric, spiced & brown sugar flavors rounded by fruity touches. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dense texture, light spicy & sparkling palate. Low hoppiness & phenolic hues in the middle. Sweet/soft bitter finish lingers into the aftertaste. Easy drinkable & refreshing despite of being a real Belgish Blond one.
