    Pours a nice crystal golden yellow with less than a one finger head that goes away very fast. Very well carbonated this one is. Aroma is very light but noticeably sweet with nice citrus elements to it. taste has a banana bread hint to it with light citrus flavors. little sweet and a tad dry after you swallow. Very nice.

    A softly carbonated blond with nice aroma and taste. Huge foam head lacing to glass. Taste is biiter blond, with little sweet present. Good drinking with some cheese.

    drank this on the beach in Curacao so rating may be a little "off". Pours clear golden with an abundant frothy white head. Some bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass. The head recedes slowly, leaving some lacing on the side of the glass. There are aromas of pale malts, spice, fruit, and faint yeast. The flavor is malty and sweet with some some spice to help balance the flavor. It has a mild aftertaste that is spicy and sweet. The mouthfeel is light to medium with moderate carbonation. It has a crisp, dry finish. It's fairly easy to drink. Overall, this is a solid, unoffensive Belgian pale ale.

    A nice belgian brew, flavor is rather "beery" and Yeasty though not a pronounced as some Belgians, a nice mix in total. Plenty of fruity notes and appropriate sweetnes is to be found. Carbonation is about right with moderate retention of head foam.

    A little too pricy for me, given that I wsa drinkiing the better Affligem Blonde for 4 Euros less. Medium gold body, average white head. Some yeast and spices in the aroma. Tasted that way, too. Smooth mouth and finish.

    Thought I'd give this a shot since their dubbel was delicious and dirt cheap. Much like Marilyn Monroe, the blonde does not disappoint. Thick and silky smooth head that endures the entire drinking experience. Color is a rich amber, with hints of orange light. Malt and crackers dominate the aroma. The flavor is riddled with fruit flavors with a hint of sour (like sour red grapes) at the end. The hops never really attack until after the swallow...the aftertaste is sharply bitter and dry. Another great after work watching the sun go down behind the mountains beer.

    fruity grassy flavors and aroma tempered with a slightly spicy but light yeast character. body slightly over carbonated but not distractingly so. overall a nice beer, especially for a belgian blonde which are typically one rung down on the food chain for me.

    This blonde beer from the Grimbergen brewery is a nice experience. Soft, subtile and a bit of sweet tastes are being found in this beer. A good head on top of it completes it all.

    yellow gold, it gives a light foam, smell it announces a thick texture, the palate it offers the roundness, it has little or no bitterness, the taste is complex with the field of barley, but very easy to drink
