No comments on this one really, other than it seems to be widespread and quite popular - an easily attainable gateway into the world of Belgian beers.

Look - A rich golden colour with a pillowy white head that sticks around for quite some time.

Smell - Sweet, lots of banana and cloves.

Taste - Very sweet with tons of banana...almost too sweet for me. Some malt, cloves, but much is overshadowed by the sweetness.

Feel - A bit lighter than other similar Belgian beers, but overall a pleasant mouthfeel.

Overall, not a bad beer by any means, but I prefer Duvel's slightly sour maltiness to the sweetness of this one.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Aroma - malty, rich, with fruity notes and an underlying sweetness. Hops are subtle.

Look - a deep gold, leaning towards copper. Head is rich and rocky, dissipating at a moderate speed.

Flavour - rich, sweet, and malty. A slight hop bite. Fruitiness doesn't come through to the flavour. As the beer depletes, so does the original maltiness.

Feel - a medium to light body, finishes slightly sweet and dry

Overall - a tasty beer, though the Blonde label seems misplaced. Very drinkable, but not terribly complex

Rather ordinary Belgiam. Good, drinkable but nothing memorable.

Nice and golden, frothy head. Taste is slightly off, smell's not too special. Nice carbonation.

One of the best representatives of Belgian beers, but became too POPular in my country. There are much more better blond ales.
