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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a clear, dark yellow liquid with a fluffy white head perched atop. Great retention, good lacing.
Smell is malt, citrus, vanilla, cardboard(?), clove and pepper. Nice balance and complexity.
Taste is the same without the light vanilla note.
Medium body though it leans slightly fuller. Medium-light effervescence. Drying, clean finish. Nice brew.

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.'

1.13/5  rDev -70.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

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

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

From the caged, corked 750 ml bottle stamped: 2012 91-09:40. Sampled on March 5, 2012. The cork flies across the room and a nice smokiness erupts from the bottle. It pours a slight cloudy golden yellow with a small, long-lasting fizzy white head. On the nose there is a malted bread, yeast, anise, and thin hop character. The body is a bit better than medium. Up front the taste begins with sweet malts then turns over to a peppery character and ends modestly bitter but not sour. This is a decent Abbey Blonde.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours lightly murky golden orange. The almost white head leaves a literal wall of lacing down the whole glass from the head that is there when I finished the beer.

Smell is Belgian yeast, fruity apple skin, mild malt and a hint of spice.

Tastes is light fruitiness, yeast, and lightly peppery.

High carbonation and a light body make this evaporate as you drink it. Easy to drink, but a little bite is present.

A fine beer that is light and easy drinking. A blonde that does what it should.

3.93/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a corked 750 ml bottle into a large clear goblet glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy deep golden color. Two finger creamy white head retains well and leaves sticky lacing as it recedes. Looks delicious.

Smell: Some delicate floral hops, sweet yeast and alcohol scent here too.

Taste: A really good balance of yeast, malt, hops and sweetness. The hops add a nice bitterness up front that is quickly followed by the spice of the yeast.

Mouth feel: Medium body with some good creamy carbonation. Sweet and slick finish.

Overall: A very good Belgian Blonde. One of the better Belgian Blondes out there. I like the easy drinking nature of this beer, and it would make an excellent session beer. One of the best Belgian Blondes I've had.
