This beer is not too bad. It's certainly not the best Belgian pale/blonde I've had, but I would say that it is a average to above average for the style. The head is good. The aroma is quite good--very pronounced bubble gum. I like that. The initial taste is good. Very good fruit flavor--reminiscent of Juicy Fruit gum. The aftertaste is the problem. It is definitely a little funky. I can't quite put my finger on it. It has a great fruity start, a pretty pleasant bite in the middle, then a funky aftertaste that brings to mind artificial sweetener. The aftertaste sticks around for quite a while, so it makes you forget the better aspects of the beer. It gets better as it warms up, but it still retains that peculiar, bitter, and slightly metallic aftertaste. I will try this beer a couple more times. Perhaps pairing it with some cheese will help.

Deecint!!
This bottle pops with more force than almost anything else in glass. I hit the dog who was laying peacefully by the front door from 25+ feet away in the kitchen when I popped this particular one with the corner of my flip phone. (by accident obviously) Following a pour into ___ (anything concave) there is a fatty off white head!! It is on the ridiculous side but hey cool i guess these belgian goldens are supposed to be carby. Good lacing n whatever.
Smells like bananay and yeast. Little bit of some overripe fruit. Good, pretty strong.
It's not quite a trippel in ABV but seems just as complex in the assortment of malt, sweet fruit and spice flavors in the front and in the middle and dry feeling once a sip has been sipped. Really satisfying; light but flavorful as anything.
Umm there are a shload of bubbles.. as mentioned before. That and light is how it feels in your mouth.
And all told for $8.49 for the sixer, it's a darn good deal for an Belgian that's authentic in taste AND origin.
