3.4/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Best Before: 24/07/10.

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear, gold body with a smallish, fizzy, white head.

Smell: It's a sweet-scented, nigh sugary nose with notes of lightly grainy pilsner malts, fruits brushed with clover honey, spice, soft florals, and alcohol.

Taste: Sweet maltiness blended with some grainy pilsner malts and sprinkled with crushed honey candies. Drying, warming alcohol enters fairly early in the taste. Slight white peach fruitiness. Subtle clove spiciness and even subtler banana taste. Subdued hop flavor with no more than enough bitterness to make itself known. Regardless of the alcohol and, albeit low, hop character, reemerging candied sweetness pops in here and there. Finishes semi-dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Drinkability: While perusing the label for any possible dating, I caught some light through the bottom of the bottle and noticed just how downright clean the inside of the bottle looked. Sure enough, it's been filtered to a high degree and seems to have lost more than it's gained. Overall, it's a passable, acceptable, widely available Belgian blonde, though I dare say there're better blondes to be had out there.

Served into a medium glass from a 330ml bottle. There is a lot of foam, lacing, stays for a long time... The colour is amazing, is darket than a regular lager, is thick that's present. Taste delicious, very malty, honey straight away, sweet some lemon aftertaste, I can't describe that amount of shapes and surfaces on a drink. I makes me, I don't need more, maybe an hamder average but it stills ok is 6.6% wowww. Very drinkable beer with the propper belgian flavour and carbonation, never say no to this trendy choice!!! Njoy

Bottle from Harvest Market
Pours a crystal clear light golden color with a decent sized bubbly bone white head that slowly dissipates. Aromas of bready sweet pilsner with a touch of floral hops and a solid shot of pepper and yeasty esters. The flavor is rich and sweet with hints of orange and sweet bread. Peppery yeasty with a bit of spice rounds out the flavor quite nicely. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a spicy bubbly mouthfeel. That is a pretty nice Belgian right there, I'm surprised I haven't tried this before.
