3.23/5  rDev -20.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Piss golden with just a touch of amber and a nice fizzy white head on top. Smells a lot like champagne, with a little citrus fruit, alcohol, and belgian yeast.

It's hard to believe this beer is 10%. It's real light and easy to drink. Until the finish, when the alcohol burn confirms the claim on the label. It's super sweet up front, with very little complexity but a whole lot of fizz bursting all over the palate. even here it's a lot like champagne. There is, of course, the ever present belgian yeast, along with a citrusy note and a little hop presence. Drinkable, but not really my thing.

The mouthfeel is seemingly light at first, but the amount of carbonation is simply misleading, giving off an "airy" feeling that makes it seem much lighter than it actually is. It's rather thick, and settles heavily in the stomach, which doesn't help its case for drinkability a whole lot either.

4.24/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Gentle hand. Dated 02/05/2013.

A: Cloudy, golden yellow body with 1+ finger of sudsy, but thick, white head. Good retention. Impressive lacing.

S: Mellow, sweet Belgian yeast with a touch of spice. Coriander. Lighter clove. Grape, pear, apple, peach. Honey. Wheat notes, straw. Vanilla. There is some bubble gum and cotton candy that bring a certain uniqueness to this one.

T: Round, yeasty sweetness with a fruity character. Mild hop bitterness develops. Fairly dry finish and rather clean. A slight bit of lingering fruit on the aftertaste. Low alcohol presence for 10% ABV.

M: Moderately high carbonation with a moderate body. Simultaneously creamy and refreshingly effervescent. The latter helps offset the alcohol.

O: Very nice Belgian blonde with good complexity. Sweet, but lots of character, I thought. All around solid and dangerously drinkable for a 10%er.

Prost!
