look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Pours a decent fizzy fluffy looking almost 1 finger head that fades fairly slowly, with nice lacing, over brilliantly clear golden honey orange color.
Nose has some nice Belgian aromas, golden malts, light fluffy effervescent malts, hints of esters, faint citrus and grassy almost wheat like, faint hints of grassy hops too, light grainy earthy straw bready malt.
Taste starts with big Belgian golden malts, little toasty golden with hints of wheat straw hay like flavors, toasty, mild sweetness with some warming booze that seems more than 6.8%. The booze brings light esters and hint of phenols as well which are typical, like fruit with hint apple and pear like, mild grassy hops and some bitterness. Fluffy and smooth though. Finish is still a bit sweet but drier, mild booze tingle and warmth, lingering sweet golden malts, little fruit and effervescence, and a bit of the phenols.
Mouth is med bodied, fluffy carb maybe a bit too much, warming tingly booze that is hotter than it should be.
Overall not bad, hits the spot for a belgian golden ale, and should be 8+% but only clocks in at 6.8 somehow. Otherwise typical flavors and characteristics.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Poured a gold color with thin white head. Smelled yeast cloves. Tasted citrus, malt, and slightly spicy, and sweet. Mouth feel was good, medium carbonation, medium body. Overall, nothing to particularly not, good but would get something else in the future.
