look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance is golden yellow with not much head nor lacing.

Nose is like a blonde Belgian: apricot, juicy fruit, and a mild floral component.

Taste is delicious. Light malt and juicy fruit are the main notes. There is also a mild woodiness and nuttiness. The flavor really "pops."

Mouthfeel is very freshing; almost juicy. It is also very creamy. It has a good amount of carbonation and a clean finish.

Overall, the appearance is deceptively unimpressive because the flavor and mouthfeel are spot-on to style, and a pleasure to drink.

-gold in color with a nice tall white head which slowly trickles down over time

-the nose is full of yeast smell accompanied by some banana and apple. there is a decent malt smell in there as well

-the belgian yeast taste is in there, but it's not overpowering. there is also some cider taste in there and almost a dirty-like malt taste as well

-dry and full bodied with a medium carb bite

-this is a solid belgian offering. it is nothing that really blows my socks off, but is tasty enough and would never mind if someone put one in my hand
