These beers are a light variation on pale ale, often made with pilsener malt.
Some beer writers regard blonde and golden ales as distinct styles, while others do not.
Duvel is the archetypal Belgian blonde ale, and one of the most popular bottled beers in the country as well as being well-known internationally. It's name means "Devil" and some other blonde beers follow the theme—Satan, Lucifer, Brigand, Piraat and so on.
The style is popular with Wallonian brewers, the slightly hazy Moinette being the best-known example.
Delirium Tremens can be considered a spiced version of Berlgian Pale Ale.
