750ml bottle courtesy of trade with thirdeye11 (thanks Chad!) poured into a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Murky amber color that pours with a fizzy white head that quickly goes away.

S: Alcohol notes with a bit of a fruity citrus-like character. There's a somewhat waxy note to this as well that's distracts from the beer.

T: A little mustiness, with a grassy, earthy taste to it along with some Belgian yeast flavors.

M: Medium to full bodied, syrupy mouthfeel.

D: Definitely drinkable, but for the style I would expect a little better. However, from what i've read, looking forward to trying some of the other's in the series.

750 ml caged and corked bottle. Batch 4-25, bottled 5-26-10.

The beer was only filled up to the top of the label, something I didn't notice until I got the beer home.

The beer pours a hazy brown-amber color with a white head. The aroma is Belgian yeast, dark fruit and alcohol. The flavor is a mix of caramel malt, yeast, brown sugar, alcohol, dark fruit and peaches, as well as some sherry, which I assume is from a little bit of oxidation. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

This beer is much more like a dubbel than a Belgian Blonde, but it is still a pretty tasty drink.
