Poured into a Leffe Chalice. Very good look, nice smell, and made me feel good. Overall a great Belgian blonde that tops Leffe easily. Worth buying and again. Worldwide availability doesn't hurt either.

From the tap, it pours a golden with a moderate head. Nose gets a bit of bread and malt, followed by a very happy mouth enjoying the crisply refreshing malt flavor. Dangerously easy to drink.

Straw golden hue; clear body. Topped by a nice frothy white head.

Mild grainy aroma, favoring pale malts, sugar, and a touch of bubblegum yeast.

Not overly sweet on the palate, carrying a moderate balancing bitterness. Pale malts come across cleanly.

This is probably the best blonde ale I've ever had. I'm not a huge fan of the style, but this is a very well-crafted beer.

Bestowed upon me by my cousin from his many trips to Belgium, mine’s a few months old now.

A: Dark straw. Nice white head.
T: Peppy esters. A touch vinous. Very sharp and refreshing. Dry but there are nuances of nail varnish and bubblegum. Not ready.
O: Certainly one of the better Belgian blonds. I wonder what it’s like fresh.

Great color! A bit hazy but with a great copperish aspect. Gave me two good fingers of foam when poured into a tulip. Good lacing considering the Abv. In teems of smell, i found it a bit confuse; maybe a small hint of cytrus completely overwhelmed by the malt and yeast combination. The feel was good, considerable carbonation and a small amount of bitterness, yet found it considerably refreshing. The end is impecable; good amount of that bready and wheat taste where you can feel the the subtle 6.8vol. Worth my money. I'd recommend it.

Pours a brilliant bronze hue, some nice estery aroma. There is definitely some nice smooth banana up front with peppery clove kick in to cut that nice sweetness. Overall, a really nice and refreshing Belgian Blonde.
