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.
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.
