4.33/5 rDev +10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Nice slightly cloudy pale yellow. A little sediment is possible if the bottle is not swirled slightly to mix in the yeast and sediment (which I recommend). Good thick and creamy head when poured into a traditional Affligem glass chalice.
Smell: Nice and yeasty, with citrus and tropical fruits hiding behind a little hoppy pine scent.
Taste: This is my favorite Belgian Blonde when I can get it in either six-packs of bottles, or larger 750 ml bottles. It has a big fruity sweetness and a nice yeasty backup. Very slight hop tang as well. Love the taste of this sexy Blonde!
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and creamy.
Drinkability: Very drinkable, goes down smooth and has a moderate ABV for the style. This is a top notch BSPA (one of my favorite styles of beer).
Serving suggestion: Drink this one out of an authentic Affligem glass chalice.
Serving type: bottle

250ml bottle served in a snifter glass.
A: Pours a clear golden yellow color forming a big and very bubbled white head. Good retention and lots of molasses and lingering lacings left in the glass
S: Strong notes of honey. Quite spicy and fruity too. Notes of caramel malts, coriander, candy sugar, grapes and bready Belgian yeasts. Light notes of flowery hops and bubblegum
T: Sweet upfront. Strong notes of honey, caramel malts, sweet pale malts, coriander and sweet bread. Fruity. Notes of grapes. Notes of flowery hops and bubblegum. Light bitterness. Hops have grassy and a bit citrus profile
M: Medium body. Molasses. Medium bitterness. Bittersweet aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Strong Belgian character
