3.84/5 rDev -0.3%
Hazy amber orange color with a thick head with good retention leaving a constant plate.
Light but still pleasant aroma of Belgian yeast, biscuit malt, some orange citrusy, banana and pears.
Flavor of spices, herbal and floral hops, Belgian yeast, lemon-orange citrusy, green apple juice, candied sugar, pineapple, nectarines and finishing with white wine and a white pepper hint. Mild tartness. Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation
Very well balanced, bitter-sweet Belgian blond elegantly spiced and with good fruit complexity. Thankfully not really sweet. All Maredsous are great solid brews.

3.8/5 rDev -1.3%
330 ml bottle into chalice, best before 9/2014. Pours moderately cloudy deep gold color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, honey, bread, herbal, floral, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, hops, and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, honey, biscuit, herbal, floral, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, honey, biscuit, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of pale malt, hops, fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with a very nice malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good Belgian pale ale. Good balance, complexity, and robustness of pale malt, hops, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
