3.6/5 rDev +4.3%
Saw this one on the shelf at the tap room and they had a special going so I went for it. Served cold and poured in a pint glass,
The pour was nice, light golden in color with a tight head of white that clung to the surface and sides rather nicely.
Light aroma, pears, light belgian spices and a nice round citrus hint that punctuates it quite well. Warming brings out herbal touches, hints of a meadow or some kin of flower. Smooth, light and easy to drink this was a no brainer to put down quickly.
Overall a really solid beer that I would have no trouble going after again any day.

3.75/5 rDev +8.7%
Appearance: Pours a yellow-hued body with excellent clarity and capped with a foaming, white head.
Smell: A scent of honey carefully drizzled over cracker dough and given a fine dusting of ground cloves. Also, lightly fruity notes of peaches and apricots. Very small hint of alcohol.
Taste: Lightly bready, cracker-toned pale malts with a brushing of sweet honey rounded with a hint of puffed grains. Small pinch of piquant spiciness. Light, fleeting traces of fruitiness representing Golden Delicious apples, peaches, and apricot. Faint hoppiness and subsequent bitterness. Drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: It's a pleasant, easy drinking brew. What else have you got going on, BottleTree?

The bottle says Belgian blonde so Iam gonna say this is a...Belgian blonde.Poured into a tulip glass a slight hazed lighter golden with a nice fluffy crown atop that held well.Aromas are floral with some phenols creeping into play.Flavors are fruity with light pehonls,the phenols dont overpower wich is nice.This is a really nice summertime Belgian pale,it goes down easy and is flavorful enough to enjoy.

A - pale yellowish copper with a thin lacing of head that has no retention
S - apples, grainy, sweet
T - apples, grainy, sweet, faint funky yeast
M - medium bodied, crisp, over carbonated
This is a rather mediocre beer. It has some fruity, sweet flavors that are overwhelming. None of the traditional spicy, yeasty qualities are present. This is a pretty disappointing offering.

12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet.
A: Pours a more than a little fizzy (think under-carbonated soda). Clear light amber. The fizzy head quickly dissipates, leaving no lacing.
S: Bready, yeasty, floral and spicy.
T: Lightly bitter with a fairly good balance of spiciness, maltiness, and yeast. Floral and spicy hops seem to be 'enhanced' with clove and nutmeg. A hint of bananas. Has a fruity, lightly earthy finish with good hop-malt balance.
M: Light+ body. Coarse carbonation to start; not enough at the finish.
O: A nice crisp blonde with more spiciness in the flavor than the aroma.

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a golden yellow color and a mostly clear consistency. There was a thin amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. No real lacing to speak of.
S: A nice aroma of fruit, yeast, and malt.
T: Tasted of apples and yeast up front, with a malty finish. Kind of thin and watery without a whole lot of character.
M: A well carbonated beer with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.
D: A decidedly average beer.

Served from tap into a shaker. Poured a golden pale yellow with a one finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, sugar, fruit, banana, and dark fruit. The flavor was of sweet malt, banana, earth, fruit, banana runts, and sugar. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly decent brew. There was a lot going on in this one, but the majority of it was a big sweet aspect. This was a little off-putting if I am honest. The banana runts was a nice touch, but definitely out of place in my opinion for this brew. Worth trying if you like sweeter brews, but if not, I wouldn’t waste your time doing so.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, a touch of biscuts. Taste is good, malts, lightly hopped, some biscuty notes as well. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking and quality brew.

12 oz bottle pours a very clear, light gold color with a decent cap of white head. Retention is just ok and does not show much lacing.
Nose is pretty fruity and the yeast very Belgian. Grainy malt and a light dusting of grassy hops.
Taste also shows plenty of Belgian influence with a tropical fruitiness and alcohol warmth. Bread dough and biscuits are offset by a 'just-enough' hoppy bitterness on the finish. This is a pretty decent American attempt at a tough style to nail, I could drink a couple of these in succession without any problem at all.

Thanks goes to brewcrew2010 for this extra.
A: Light golden color. Huge three fingers of bright white head. Thick chunks of lace left behind, thick cap. Looks great.
S: Complex array of ingredients going on in the aroma. Belgian yeast and spices. Sweet malt, earthy grains and hints of citrus.
T: The flavor is a bit of a let down after the promising nose. Light pale malt and a touch of hop bite. Some belgian yeast and spices peak out. An off putting metallic flavor comes through in the finish. Sending this one off the deep end.
M: Light thin body. Low carbonation.
D: All bark and no bite. Drinkable yet forgettable.
