3.75/5 rDev +0.5%
330ml bottle, poured into a La Chouffe tulip. A: Golden, clear, lots of bubbles, two
finger rocky head, decent retention. S: Fruity esters. T: Esters, fruits, wheat, yeast,
more sweet than bitter. M: Creamy texture, smooth, well carbonated. O: More or
less a clone of Val Dieu blonde or a number of other Belgian blonde ales, it’s nice
and has no unique features, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing.

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.
