3.23/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Sampled from a 33cl bottle I brought back from Lille, France with a Best Before date of 10 2004.

Poured a clear copper color with a big white, cloud like head. Great lacing, sheats of it clung to the glass almost like a white chalk sketch of a section of the Alps with sharp rocky peaks and lots of them. Nice bubbles of carbonation on the side of the glass at the beginning, but seemed to disappear without any fanfare.

The aromas were fairly muted and not what I would expect from a Blanche or Blonde as it said on the bottle. I detected scents of malt and yeast with very faint hints of spice. I let it warm and sit for quite a bit hopping it would open up, with little success. The nose opened slightly but it was as if it just wanted to show a little and was too tired to come out and play.

The taste profile was fairly bland and unimpressive. It started with slightly sweet malt, some yeast, and mild citrus. Little to no spice or hops were present. Very shut down. Bottle shock perhaps? The finish was unusually dry. It left me wanting water and was a little unpleasant.

Overall, very disappointing. I will try another, but it will be very difficult to obtain for me.

3.7/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Came out a deep clear orangish gold under a firm but bubbly off white head, which lingered well and left some very good lace. The nose was fruity sweet, while the mouth was (too) heavily carbonated but light in texture. The initial taste has the typical francophone fruity sweetness. The hops come on strong soon thereafter, though, leaving a very crisp, just this side of harsh impression. The aftertaste is mildly bitter, but a bit thinner than I would prefer. Overall an excellent beer, but still missing something.

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.

Drank this one last night but remember it was excellent and it made me a bigger fan of this belgian pale ale style. It poured with a big and inviting head which gave off a great fruity aroma. It's taste was complex and had fruitnotes and good balance. I highly recomend this beer and will be drinking this one frequently. It has a great drinkability cause it's light mouthfeel and finish but extra goog all aroung package.
Count me in. Only draw back is the price but I think it's worth it on this one.

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

The pour a nice golden-orange color, moderate sized head, frothy, brilliant white color, fine sheets of lace to coat the glass. Nose is sweetly fruity like a ripe banana, malt, citrus, and quite pleasant. Begins sweet, top has a moderate mouth feel. The finish is modestly acidic, pleasantly hopped, quite dry aftertaste. As for me, I normally don't care for "Blondes" at least where beer is concerned!!!, but I find this one quite quaffable.
