This is a very good blond. Nice color, nice aroma , and nice flavor. More of a warm weather beer than what you expect for the fall but good to sit back with and watch a game. Best of the New Belgiums, in my opinion. Drinking from the bottle and poured it in a glass. Skimpy on the hops but overall a nice and smooth palate. I have to put this up as one of my favorite; however I am patial to blonds.
