look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: What a beauty! Great orange hue with a decent head and lacing to boot. Little effervescence and no floaties.

Smell: Medium intensity. Funky, orange, banana, bready, yeasty and grainy. Very delicate and rustic feeling.

Taste: Follows on the nose, albeit in a slightly more muted and mild manner.

Mouthfeel: Near perfection. Everything you would ever want from a Belgian blond: Low carbonation, mildly acetic, medium full bodied, warming ABV and a long delicious clovey, banana and fruity aftertaste.

Overall: A beautiful beer that falls short only where it concerns aromatic intensity.
