On first trip to Belgium in late 2010. A road trip from Bruges to the cafe next to the Monastery on a pilgrimage for the quadruple but lets start with the Blond first. Appearance is cloudy with a light foam. Looks like an unfiltered wheat. Aromas of wheat with an estery banana note. Taste is smooth with a nice balance of wheat and a hop end note. Mouthfeel is complex and rich for a low alcohol beer with a medium level of carbonation. Super drinkable beer.

Appearance: Lovely golden color, nice head formed upon the pour. Yeast sediment present. Good carbonation that continues to be refreshed as

Smell: A clean, grassy aroma. Light and bright nose. Some spices and yeast add to overall floral profile.

Taste: Toasty malt presence is added to what is found it the aroma. Subtle grassy hop contribution that does not overpower the balance.

Mouthfeel: Just enough linger on the tongue. A crisp and clean light cleansing allowing proper prep for the next sip.

Overall: What a pleasure. A well-made brew for such a soft style. As others of said, drink this as fresh as you can get it. Overshadowed by it's bigger brothers, but a beer that should not be overlooked. Wish I could get more, for it would make a great table beer.
