Enjoyed on-tap @ Star Bar in Des Moines, IA for $6. Tapped from the VooDoo Doll Tap Handle w/ an actual Doll Head on the top of the handle into a 12oz Shaker Glass! Went straight for this purely because of the branding.
Aroma- Strong floral hops, huge malt, and a slight banana character are all present. Very nice aroma and complexed for the style!
Appearance- Received with a .5 finger head that has weak retention. Has a light golden but clear body. Leaves a few suds behind.
Flavor- Sweet, Malty, and has medium esters. Spices come across mid drink but then filter into the finish. Has a very light bitterness level at the finish and semi-dry.
Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, High Carbonation, Slick, and has a great banana character left on the palate. Light spices are also around at the finish.
Overall Impression- A very easy drinking Blonde with tons of complexity! Enjoyed greatly and would like to see this one cross my pass again during the summer time. Go for this if your a blonde fan but also enjoy Belgian style beers.

Overall an extremely solid Belgian Blonde/Strong Pale.
Pours golden with just a faint whisp of carbonation. Fruity, bubblegum and banana, small hints of warming spice.
On the palate this is sweet, sticky candy sugar and cotton candy followed by a warming, earthy bitter finish.
If they carbonated this better, it would be more balanced and have a much more appropriate mouth, lifting and refreshing instead of sticky and full. If they dried it out, more, all the better.
A fine American take on the style, that I'd happily drink (particularly on tap) and cook with, but won't find myself craving a return to.

Was this beer worth adding an almost an hour to a daytrip whist having our toddler in tow? Absolutely! We stopped in the brewery after photographing tulips in Pella. We had a gift certificate to use as a result of a bad sixer that the company reimbursed us for.
The gold golor with a very slight haze and fluffy white foam filled the tulip glass nicely. The aroma was very floral with atouch of citris mixed in. The taste is like honey with citris, floral, and hops mixing to create an amazing flavor. The body has substance but doesn't feel like a brick wall hitting your pallete. It goes down well and makes me WANT to have more. I am giving this one 5 stars only after drinking it many times over the last 3 years and what I got from the brewery was the best yet. Yes, it IS that good.
