When poured into a chalice, it had about an inch of head with a cloudy honey color. There was significant lace upon agitation. It was sweet, with some spicy and mild bitter notes. There is also a yeasty flavor, similar to what you may taste in a hefeweizen. There is a mild alcohol taste near then end. Overall it is refreshing beer.

Moinette Blond pours hazy gold with a fluffy 2” mountainous, persistent white foam cap that rises up above the rim of the glass, leaving thick lace, with a small mound of foam remaining in the glass when you finish. It evokes the kind of foam one sees on the seashore. The nose is honey infused herbs with some light fruit and traces of bread. Light honey, peach, citrus, light grain and biscuit flavors roll over the tongue with a trace of funk, culminating in a slightly sweet finish moderated by a moderately bitter accent. It has very fine soft carbonation that produces a delightfully airy texture. It has a medium body and it very refreshing. Dupont uses those damn green bottles for this - I would give it 100 but every fourth or fifth bottle is skunky.

A nice beer but not much more than a regular Belgian strong ale.

A: Golden body with a creamy white head.
S: Bret notes and phenols. A touch cakey.
T: Has a warming cakey Belgian backbone. Fairly bitter - almost salty - and whle it starts out dry it finishes almost sweet. There's a touch of something herbal/marijuana-like. Saaz hops perhaps?
O: Yeah, pretty good.

From a corked 750, looks like 10/2014 bottling. Pours a clear gold with lots of fine sediment in suspension, thick head of dense white foam, thick cap remains, thick sheet down the glass. Smell: floral, lightly biscuity, orange marmalade, coriander, clove, and soft banana-ish note. Taste: grassy with a note of coriander, pear and apricot, sugary and lightly biscuity; more coming out towards the end of the sip... notes of coconut, banana, canned mandarin orange, candied lemon finish. Body like whipped cream but fantastically easy drinking. There's so much more going on here than in most BSPAs, whether trying to fit to a style or not, this is excellent.

12/20...pours hazy dark gold, 1/4 inch fluffy white foam. Funky yeast nose, but light. Lighter blonde taste, some belgian yeast rises with a spicy hop. Light bodied, some complexity of taste. Creative.

cloudy, almost think golden
All about the yeast. Smells like yeast, friuty.
Taste like yeast that gives a lot of fruity ester.

Like the sourness, but it should not be in a blond.
