A nice typical blonde from Belgium - way better than the leffe, Grimbergen or Affligem. A bit hard to find even in Europe but available easily in Belgium.

A 330ml bottle brought back from my trip to Belgium last year. It pours a hazy golden coloured with a thin white head. Aromas has a malty bread with slight spicey notes. Tastes of caramel, bread, yeast & spices. Medium body with a bitter sweet yeasty finish with hints of spice.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium golden amber with a half finger off-white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Classic aroma of Belgian yeast, clove, light stone fruit and citrus, a hint of toffee. Flavor is earthy light stone fruit, lemon citrus, Belgian yeast and spicing with a light clove finish. Medium bodied with active carbonation. Nice balance of flavors and all the BPA components are there, but not very assertive, with a mild finish. A satisfactory, but not superlative Belgian blond.

I never had this beer as far i can remember. I saw it in the beershop last week and decided to buy it.

Poured it in my Duvel glass. The beer gives me a nice big white head which stays not very long. The carbonation is ok.

I don't know what i smell but it's not a supersmell. Not good and not bad.

The taste is dry with the yeast hidden in the beer.
Not a spectacular beer but for once ok.

Sorry but this following comment is in french :

Appearance : une bière à la robe dorée et mousse blanche persistante
Smell : nez légérement épicé, de coriandre et d'agrumes
Taste and mouthfeel : son goût est doux, assez épicé, belle amertume en finale
Drinkability : une bonne bière dans le style Belgian blond ale (Abbaye)
