Clear amber-tinted golden color in the tulip. A modest head bu subtle lalcing along the glass as you sip. Smell of gardenias and hot dogs.

Crisp malty mouthfeel with a deep fruit taste, like dry cherry wine. The yeasty flavor is the main attraction. Floral and perfumey with a savory, meaty, wild yeast taste. Smooth and slightly buttery with a spicy bitter finish.

Less sweet than a lot of these strong Belgians. The classic blonde flavor with a restrained yet sharp, alcoholic note. On tap at Fathom in San Diego.

Massive carbonation with a huge head of foam about an inch thick. Golden colored with a bit of haziness. Aroma of green apples and Belgian candy sugar. I also get a bit of a Belgian yeast strain in the aroma with some pale malt. The flavor is pale malt,Pale malt and a Belgian yeast strain. Mouthfeel is a bit carbonated but dry and smooth. Taste and mouthfeel are very good,but overly carbonated and the aroma is Ok.
