look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is clear and a darker shade of golden yellow in color with a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high bright white head that has excellent retention properties, taking a very long time to died down and consistently left a short head covering the surface and a coating of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose along with hints of spices and sweet malts.
T: Like the smell, the taste is quite malty and has bits of sweetness along with notes of Belgian yeast and hints of spices.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has the maltiness and a similar flavor profile to that of a triple, but isn't nearly as sweet and seems to be more drinkable.

750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, best before 2/7/2016. Pours lightly cloudy bright golden amber color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with plenty of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, floral, grass, wheat, light honey, light bread, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, floral, grass, wheat, bread, light honey, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, banana, clove, pepper, wheat, light honey, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Excellent balance and complexity of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent Belgian blonde ale. All around great balance and complexity of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. Really enjoyed this one.
