Rather surprised that I never reviewed this before as I lived in Paris for 9 months ; )

In general I'm not a huge fan of blondes...I much prefer a more hoppy pilsner or IPA, or smooth dark beer...but let's give this a go.

Deep appearance...proper foamy head, typical of Belgium. Aroma is almost like a wheat beer but there is no must be the hops they use ; )

Taste is really smooth, with that distinct Belgian malt flavour...and a hint of wheatless banana wheatness. That isn't a typo and is the best way that I can explain the flavour ; ) It's mega smooth and subtely complex. It's great definitely, but I prefer the Tripel for sure.

I agree with other comments that mention this being somewhat similar to a tripel.

L: Really like the golden color, hugh creamy off white head.
S: COVID messed up my sense of smell :-( but slightt banana coming through.
T: Again, sense of taste not what it should be, but can also taste a bit of banana and some citrus. Dry, sour after taste.
F: Tangy if that makes sense.

330 ml bottle, bought at Systembolaget, Sweden. ABV is 6.0%. Golden colour, huge white head. Lovely aroma of Belgian ale yeast and spices, hints of farmhouse kitchen. The flavour is mildly spicy and quite refreshing, but I’d like some more hops in the finish. A very drinkable beer all the same.

Cerveza dorada, ligera, con una carbonatación media. Aroma frutal y también a caramelo. En boca se siente la malta, el caramelo y cereales. Final ligeramente amargo y malteado.

Pours unfiltered amber, big small bubbles white head as most belgian brews. Medium carbonation. Great retention and lacing.

Aroma was a bit vinegary at first, but just slight first odor followed by typical belgian yeasty notes an malty sweetness.

Taste was mostly malty sweetness with a certain hop presence that gives it a bittersweet edge.

Feels stronger than 6%, mouthfeel is full and a bit spicy.

Good blonde but a bit boring.

certainly not my favorite of these maredsous beers, its a little heavy on the malt in taste and body for what it is, and its not quite as dry and effervescent as i like the style to be, it drinks a little more slowly, not a bad thing necessarily, but it was not at all what i was expecting. a little brassy shine in the glass, deeper than yellow by several shades, with a short white head on it from the bottle, pretty clear. i smell light banana, still green, rich sweet honey, a little oxidation, and a soft belgian yeast, quite familiar, a little bit phenolic, but in the way that kind of works in this type of beer. sturdy body when i take a drink, much bigger than expected, with some of the residual sugar carrying on, it almost tastes and feels like a tripel to me. dried flowers and white sugar, a pleasant cereal maltiness, and banana and subtle anise from the yeast, flavorful and well made for sure. overall a nice glass of beer, perhaps a little dated in the bottle now, which could be interfering a little bit, but i like this, just not as well as some of the others they make.

Poured from a bomber into my Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear light golden pour with big fluffy white head. Great retention and lacing.

S: Light and fruity... sweet and spicy.

T/F: Light grains and Belgian yeast/esters. Lemony citrus, pear, and spice. Summer fruits and white grape. Mild honey sweetness up front and then balanced out with hops. Light bodied... crisp and very drinkable.

O: A classic Belgian Blonde... great flavor, very drinkable... excellent beer.

Poured from the bottle into a Mardesous glass at Belga Cafe.

Deep bronze gold, with very good clarity. Off white head with sheets of lacing down the chalice. Good amounts of carbonation. Real good looker.

Bit of a good amount of candi sugar on this nose. Aroma is sweet but tolerable, good amounts of dry like barley sensations.

Palate manages some good basics. Dry finishing grains but a very noticeable amount of sweetness. Light sugars but gets into honey qualities in the mid palate. Almost biscuit like but the dryness particularly cuts in the aftertaste. Neutral mouthfeel, Nothing overly bad or great in either direction.

A pretty decent Belgian Blonde that doesn't get to sweet.
