Such a solid beer, pours with great head and smells of bitter hops and flowers, as is the local style. Flavor is slightly bitter as well, with a very faint hint of sweetness and a nice light malt. Mouthfeel had just the right fit. Very drinkable, but only a few as it's heavy like a Leffe would be.

Ter Dolen Blonde, abdij beer. 33 cl. bottle, bb 06-2009.
I hope it's still ok.

Golden colour, clear ale, nice 1 finger creamy head, good carbonation.

Smell is malty, slight citrus, plus floral.
Equal taste, soft maltyness with a modest dry bitter finish.
Smooth and easy, well balanced ale, with 6.1% alcohol just well flavoured, to balance it.
I found it to be similar to f.i. an English bitter.

Very ok experience overall. Recommended for this style.

appearance - pours clear (though sediment in bottle) dark yellow with nice 1" white head

nose - very fruity, peppery, pleasant and enticing

taste, not as good as nose. some metallic notes, a bit of the sweet fruitiness from the nose, finishes a bit bitter.

the nose had me excited, but overall an unremarkable blond belgian beer. metallic notes never help.
