    Beer pours a pale gold, slight cloudiness, and topped with a weak snow white film. Fresh bread, citrus, yeast, and light spices. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. The flavor is yeasty and citrusy.

    If this beer was black it would get a ten for appearance, maybe. Yeast and spice aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Flavour of yeast, banana, spices, bread and lemon. Bit sweet to start, bit tart in the finish.

    Purchased at Liquor Control Board of Ontario store. A cloudy golden pour with a generous white head. Aroma is yeast, light citrus, spices, and grains. Flavour is a tad sweet to start, which gives away to tart citrus notes, before a bitter finish.

    A blond as they should be, bitter end jet some sweet in the distance. Good foam, but it dissapeares bit fast. Not too carbonated and taste is lasting quite some time, good blond.

    not a huge fan of belgian blondes as a whole, but this one was pretty nice. grassy and spicy with a hint of sweet at the end. dry body. fairly simple and light, but refreshing enough.

    Drank a lot of this last spring in Paris. Widely available on draught. Nice darkish body for a blonde ale, moderate white head. Lovley aroma of hops, yeast, and spice. Flavour was this way as well. Good, smooth mouthfeel and finish.

    I had this one on tap on 03-04-11 and it was allright. Bit dark for a blonde in my humble opinion. Light amber colour with a beige creamy head that last during the drinking experience. Aroma has fruity hops, bits of citrus and malt. Taste is a bit mellow, leaving a dry feeling on your tongue along with some herbs and spices and the citrus returns.

    This brew pours a with a pale straw color, creamy head that lasts a while. The greatest attribute is is the full creamy mouth feel, low alcohol bite. This beer is rich but lacks the thirst quenching abilities of a lesser beer. Flavor is pleasant, with typical "Belgium Style" attributes. The only other bad point is the the total flavor of the brew is somewhat subtle. A reasonable alternative to many of the expensive Belgium offerings that are out there.

    Not a Chimay but better than a shock top. I would describe this as a good experience, the color was cloudy from sediment, no apparent alcohol taste slight yeast, not bitter. Overall a good alternative to a Chimay, not that I am comparing, but in this economy I will grab a six pack of this beer.

    A translucent amber colored beer with a big creamy textured, off white head rises above. Some hang time. A light dusting of a film on the sides of the glass and big soapy ringlet, and clouds left behind atop the beer. A lot of sedimentation in the body supported by big bubbles. The nose and tasting are yeasty, phenolic, and peppery. A medium body, crispness all makes this a pretty good drink.
