Pours a golden/amber color into my goblet, with a very clingy, overflowing head. Leaves cotton candy like residue as the lacing. There is some re fermented yeast at the bottom. Aroma - Very sweet fruitiness, like watermelon and pear. Yeast and malt character is going to be dominant going by the aroma as well. Taste - very bready, with wheat, banana, kiwi, melon, and candy apple. Very carbonated and medium mouthfeel. A fine, refreshing brew that is 'for anyone.'

Had this on tap at the Half Moon in Kennett Square,a real nice golden/orange color with a very sticky head,very fruity aroma of banana and a slight pineapple aroma.Taste is slightly yeasty with some nice fruity tones almost to easy to drink.Seeing I was on the roof outside drinking this it seemed to go down even easier.Real nice.

4.15/5  rDev +7.8%

Presentation: It was poured from a stubby brown 11.2oz bottle into my Westmalle Trappist chalice. The abv is listed as 6% and there is a "Best before" date of 05 2011. The back label also has a short description of the beer.

Appearance: Its body has a deep orange amber color with a very slight haze to it. It is also full of visible carbonation racing up to the head. The head is just off white in color and very thick and creamy. It has excellent retention and it maintains a good cap of foam until the end.

Smell: In the nose I get sweet bready and yeasty notes with some light fruity and medicinal estery notes. There is a bit of alcohol as well.

Taste/Palate: The flavor is fruity, estery, sweet and bready with solid herbal bitterness from the hops. Mild fruity notes of peach, red apples skins and pear are suggested on my tongue. The palate is very creamy and smooth but still quite lively from the carbonation.

Notes: It is a very enjoyable Blonde for sure with nice balance of malt and hops.

Best head ever. Poured clear gold with a thick, frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, candy sugar, and spice. Taste was very understated. Typical Belgian-sweet, with a nice malty back. More yeast ester flavors as the beer warms and settles. Light mouthfeel.

1.13/5  rDev -70.6%

Appearance: light gold; slight haze; head fades fast

Aroma: metallic; a bit tart; sour apple or grapes

Taste & Mouthfeel: sharp bit on the tongue, very acidic; thin body; below average carbonation, almost flat at times; very short; somewhat vegetal, metallic again

Overall: very unpleasant and bland - like drinking tin; can't even finish it

* Wondering if it was a bad bottle, doesn't seem consistent with other reviews

4.1/5  rDev +6.5%

Pours a slightly hazed pale golden hue with a bright white head fine bubbled effervescent texture. Fine even Belgian style lacing. Aromatics have light biscuit malt sweetness with a touch of tropical fruit and pear juice...a nice welcoming herbal slightly citric hop nose going on as well. Clean biscuit malts hit the palate first with a backend of fruitiness and herbal grassiness in the finish. A touch of white pepper from the yeast used, but overall a very complex low alcohol session ale from Maredsous. Finishes pretty dry with yeast spice and grassy hops, nice straight forward Belgian pale ale...efferevescent carbonation dead on to the style. Overall experience is a good one, a beer I would definitely come back to, but for 3.50 a pop at the local I'm sure sixers of American craft beers will be my go to still.

A - Beautiful dark golden color with very modest head that rapidly dissipates and leaves little lacing. No cloudiness.

S - Very sweet aroma. Faint hop presence; very fruity.

T - Sweet and almost sugary (but not overpoweringly sweet). A very tiny bit of hop presence adds a bit of depth and helps to balance the sweetness. For me, it's still a bit too sweet to pair with anything; I enjoy this simply by itself.

M - A bit thin, but pleasant nonetheless. The carbonation is a bit lighter than what I would hope for, but it is still quite refreshing.

O - A very solid refreshing pale ale. I can't say I'm a fan of the style, but I certainly can't complain about this one. I would actually recommend this over Duvel. It's quite reasonably priced in my area as well, so I would definitely recommend this to fans of the style.

A nice Belgian Blonde. More orangey-gold than blond in colour. Yeasty, orange-rind nose, lightly flowery. Flavour is dry, citric and lightly spicy, yeasty. Pretty faultless, and easy to get along with. Soft, round, balanced, with an interesting yeasty/spicey character, pretty much how i like my paler Belgian ales to be, very tasty.

Poured from an inch or so above the glass gave this beer a big white head that settles into a pretty nice lacing above a hazy honey golden colored blonde.

When I first took a whiff of this I really didn't get much coming off it so I swirled the glass as I held it close to my nose and this released a lot of light and different aromas. Light hops, grains, grapes, yeast, dark fruits and even lighter of alcohol, spices, and apricots.

A light darker fruits taste, light yeast with some washed out grain malts sneaking in there.

A light dry slightly bitter aftertaste on the medium bodied affair.

My beer poured a deep clear golden color with a thick one inch head and an off white color. Nice froathy bubbles in the body. The nose was malty, sweet and the taste was more of the same with some citrus notes and a hop presence. Medium body and easy drinking.
