This is a tasty beer however it is not right for the style. The colour is dark gold with a huge head but the nose is not really there. The beer really tastes like a lager right down to the sweetish aftertaste. I can barely distinguish a Belgian flavour in the finish. The beer is tasty but in no way resembles a Belgian Blonde.

I agree with canucklehead - tasty, but not quite right.

A bit to bright and amber for my liking - almost like a Euro lager. Slight hints of spice, candi sugar and a faint "Belgian" feel to the nose.

Too sweet on the tongue, and the expected fruit and spice flavour is very mellow.

Low carbonation; a nice beer but not quite the Belgian blonde I was expecting.
