3.81/5 rDev +1.3%
From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #63 (Apr 2012):
LOOK: Clear golden yellow, thin wispy white lace
SMELL: Yeast, green banana skin, white pepper, gummy, orchard must
TASTE: Semi-crisp, red apple, mixed fruit-cup juice, herbal hop; medicinal, pithy, chalky, gummy, slightly astringent, peppercorn, cracker-like dry malt, salty, yeasty, oily hop, dry finish
Simple yet intricate, with yeast nuances ... perhaps too much so? That would be our only gripe with this beer. The yeast dominates. In fact, it's a yeast bomb. Some taming would push this beer into the exceptional range. Regardless, a good stab at an Abbey-style Blonde Ale.

750ml bottle into a Duvel tulip.
A: Pours a hazy golden color. The head is a two finger white shade. It doesn't have the thick-looking richness or great retention I expect from a BPA; otherwise the general look is fine.
S: About what I expected - apple, pear, grape, bread, and noble hops to balance. No single note here is impressive, but it coalesces together admirably.
T: Initial fruity tones of citrus, apple, and grape eventually build to an earthy hop tone. Additional grape flavors linger on the aftertaste pleasantly. It makes up for its modicum of depth with its rock-solid balance and easy drinking nature.
M: The texture is fairly light - a great combination with the crisp, dry nature of the finish. Only thing to really complain about is that carbonation is a touch too high.
O: This one doesn't impress at first...until you realize that 2/3rds of the bottle was finished in about 10 minutes. The focus on pleasant subtlety over chest-thumping aggressiveness is something I can really appreciate here.

22oz bottle poured into HF glass. Thanks Brian (Auror) for sharing this. Reviewed from notes taken two days ago.
A- Pours a hazy yellow, decent carbonation,
S- Lemons, yeast, oranges, tangerines. Fairly aromatic but a little bit astringent and not that pleasant in my opinion.
T- Lemons, tangerines, yeast, light malts, slight lemon bitterness with a lingering aftertaste. Nice lemon taste, fairly interesting, much better then aroma.
M- Light, fairly over-carbonated, fairly easy drinking.
O- Decent belgian blonde that was a little bit different then I'm used to having, but fairly enjoyable asides from the aroma. While this wasn't my favorite blonde, I'd definitely try it again but I wouldn't seek it out.
