Poured a deep clear blond with a moderately retentive white head. Nice sticky lacing left. The aroma is mild, fruity and yeasty. The taste is very similar but a little more robust. The body has a nice light weight to it, with just a little bit of carbonation on the finish.

Great beer, just as a belgian pale ale should be.
Has a golden/ocher color, somewhat transparent and makes a big whitey foam.
Yeasty head, with some spicy and malty tones.
Taste is maltier and has a nice bitter end.
This beer is extremely well balanced, specially fot those who prefere them bitter.

An okay and easy to drink and refreshing Belgian ale that unfortunately lacks that little extra.

The beer poured a perfect blonde color, and was slightly cloudy with a creamy white head that was two finger-widths. The head dissipated slowly leaving some Belgian lace.

It had a fruity (citrus) aroma with some toasted malt hints. There was also a slight air of hops.

The initial taste is extremely light with only a hint of fruitiness. The middle is quite dry, and the beer finishes with a crisp hoppy finish. It was a great example of what a Belgian blonde ale should taste like.

The mouth-feel on this beer is exceptional. It is extremely crisp and dry. The carbonation was on the high side.

Overall, this is a great Belgian blonde. If you are looking for something complex, then you might be disappointed, but then again... you probably shouldn't be drinking a blonde ale.
