11.2oz bottle poured into a goblet.

Pours a slightly hazy orangey-gold with a rock solid white head. Head retention and lacing are absolutely outstanding.

Smell is quite yeasty with some orange and coriander notes. Also a little grassy and flowery.

The taste picks up on quite a bit of honey along with orange and coriander. Some apple is present along with banana. The beer finishes quite try with just a light bitterness. Carbonation is very high on this one leading to a prickly mouthfeel that is just a little bit too much.

Overall a decent beer although better examples of this style are out there.

330ml bottle poured in a Leffe chalice.

A: Pours a pale yellow color with a big white fluffy head. Small retention and only few lacings left

S: Deliciously spicy. Quite sweet, reminds honey, vanilla, mellon, coriander and pepper. Orange zest. Herbs and flowery hops

T: Quite spicy beer. Malts, belgian yeasts, candy sugar, coriander, melon and pepper. Sweet upfront followed by a dry taste and a considerable bitter hoppy end

M: Heavy body, medium carbonation. Balanced sweet bitterness

O: Good drinkability. Very Belgian. Great beer

A blonde ale with white head that fades. There is aroma of mint (not sure where this comes from), yeast, and some hints of spicy hops. The flavor brings this on in full spirit. I just don't get this one. I rarely say it, but too dry, too carbonated, and yet not awful. There are just too many interesting and tasty elements in this one. I want to dislike it but there's something here that makes me interested.

On tap at Brasserie Beck in Washington, DC. Described on the menu as a Brasserie Beck exclusive, but I wouldn't be surprised to see this springing up on tap around the country--or am I missing somehing?

Body is translucent but hazy gold. Slight head resolves to a ring with slight lacing.

Aroma of light malt, banana, and candi sugar.

Tastes of light malt, banana, and coriander. There is a subtle amount of hops in the dry finish. Also, a bit of toffee and candi sugar.

Overall, a decent Belgian blonde strong ale. But not so strong at 7.5% ABV.

On tap at Max's.

The beer pours a pale gold color with good head retention and considerable lacing. The nose is attractive, showing waxy honey, vanilla, light cherry and considerable underlying spice. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this easy to appreciate and enjoy Belgian blond. There's also some light bitterness in the finish, which helps to counter the moderate at most sweetnesss. This beer is surprisingly light, crisp and refreshing, with the alcohol integrated perfectly into the flavor profile.

While nothing mind blowing, this is just a delightful, delicious, easy to drink Belgian blond.

The Trappist. Poured a mildly hazy light yellow, minor head, minor lacing.

Yeast, fruity aroma has notes of spices and pepper.

Taste is grainy and yeasty, the fruits not near as strong as the nose hinted. Mild but distinct hop bite, would improve if made sharper. Very minor bitterness trails off in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light and crisp.
cheers

This pours a clear golden colour with a big fluffy white head that hangs around.

It says that it is brewed with Vitamin C and the first thing I get on the nose is Barocca! That blows off to leave some spicy Belgian yeastiness. Maybe some apple.

A lot more apple on the palate. Green apple. Some medicinal notes and the spiciness, pepper? Alcohol only comes in at the end.

Medium bodied with a very high carbonation.

Not the best that these guys produce but still a bloody nice beer,

Pours golden with a reasonable amount of cloudiness and a nice carbonated cap. Aroma is a bit of banana and spice -- clove and/or anise. Flavor is sunscreen with a bit of fruit and a nice spiciness. A slightly sour aftertaste that I'm not fond of: keeps it from the crisp pop that you want from a blond like this. The flavor is not unlike Saison Dupont. Quite nice!

Poured from a 33cl bottle into a tulip

A - Murky golden colour. Small but solid head with some nice lacing.

S - Mild sweet malts and cheese.

T - Sweet, slightly sour with the traditional blonde touches of banana and malt/bread.

M - Vibrant and lively with decent carbonation. Malty but with a slightly sour feel.

D - Taste is ok but there are better examples of this style out there.

Poured from the tap into a branded chalice at Poechenellekelder in Brussels.

A: A pure golden color with a slightly offwhite 2.5 finger head that lasts a long time.

S: Bright and crisp aroma of apples and grapes. Big yeasty presence as well as some spices are evident.

T: Honey and a yeasty character, slightly tangy going down. Somewhat cloying. Some malty sweetness lingering on. Spices show up among some other fleeting extraneous things like a quick sugary note.

Recommended at the local liquor store as 'World's best pale ale Abbey 2010'.

Looks pale golden, with a soapy head that's gone quickly, good lacing though, modest carbonation.

Smell of pine and citric hops. A little malts and clove in the background.
Taste is bittersweet malts, spicy and mellow hops. Very mellow indeed. A real pleaser. Refined and undemanding.
Mouthfeel is very smooth and easy.
Very drinkable. 7.5 % makes it a good beer for both at home and in a bar.
