3.64/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a tasty belgian blonde, lost somewhere between a classic tripel and a belgian pale or strong golden. its hazy and pale yellow, with a few yeast bits and a nose of cut grass and fruity yeast coming off of a several inch tall white head that rings every sip. the taste has a little bit of floral hops on the front end, and a pretty sweet and sturdy malt base for its color, but it flavored predominantly by a classic belgian yeast strain thats got hints of pears and apples to it, without being cloying or artificial. a decent bit of residual sugar in the finish gives body by arrests drinkability significantly, and even effervescent carbonation cant cut it or lighten it up much. a hearty brew for its looks, and one that while i enjoy it quite a lot, its a one and done for me. just a bit filling and sweet for all day drinking, but its alcohol is well hidden and its quality is at the forefront of the experience.
