It's a hazy golden beer, almost murky. Aroma is filled with pear, candi sugar, coriander, and bruised apple. Flavor reveals more citrus underpinnings, pear dominance, clove, and a bready malt backbone that dries out the peppery finish. Mineral and metallic notes surface late. More bready than some, and with plenty of alcohol warmth that's slightly overwhelming.

On tap at The Public House in La Jolla, where they describe this as an "unfiltered Belgian Blonde." Slight haze on the amber brew. Nice foam in the Brugse Zot tall chalice. Unusual aromatics that come through in the taste. Some kind of sweet bread with a funky note. Sprightly in the mouth with a medium body.

An interesting warm and grainy brew. This is not quite like anything else-- some perfumey flavors, popcorn, and a little weedy. Some hints of sourish fruit along with the sweet malty taste. Rather dry finish in the usual Belgian yeasty style.

Poured on tap at the brewery.
Look: poured a golden straw color with a two finger foamy white head. Remarkably clear given it is unfiltered when served at the brewery.
Smell: a lot of coriander, with some bannana and yeast, and a bit of orange zest
Taste: unexpectedly bitter up front, fades to a biscuity malt with hints of spice and yeast on the back end
Mouthfeel: crisp and thin
Overall: pretty good, but overall underwhelming. Pretty one dimensionally bitter for a blonde.
