Taste Notes: Overall Impression
A moderate-strength golden ale that has a subtle fruity-spicy Belgian yeast complexity,

slightly malty-sweet flavor, and dry finish.

Comments
Often has an almost lager-like character, which gives it a cleaner profile in comparison to many other Belgian styles. Belgians use the term Blond, while the French spell it Blonde. Most commercial examples are in the 6.5 - 7% ABV range. Many Trappist or artisanal Belgian beers are called Blond but those are not representative of this style.

Commercial Examples
Affligem Blond, Grimbergen Blond, La Trappe Blond, Leffe Blond, Val-Dieu Blond
