330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours cloudy bright orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, honey, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and moderate pale/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of big lemon, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, honey, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, honey, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and moderate pale/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian strong pale ale. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast and moderate pale malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Beer of a nice look but a lot disappointing.
It has an extremely golden color and a nice whitey foam.
Smell and taste are somewhat neutral.. I have nothing special to say.
This beer is also not well balanced, alcohol is easily perceptible. Well.. at least it has a nice bitterness.

07/25/13 From bottle at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Where do I start? Calls itself a"blond" on the label but once exposed the roots may be somut' else. OMO this is a step above just a blond. How much? I dare not say. One thing I will venture is this is a full bodied brew. The 8% is a dead give away. If you've a choice, keep it for the end of the evening as it comes in under the radar. You've been warned.
