4/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Hazy amber orange color with a thick one finger head with medium retention and tiny floating particles.
Aroma with notes of oranges, slight sour, herbal hops, candied sugar and mild booze.
Flavor with a nice herbal hop bitterness, a good deal of spices, candied sugar, Belgian yeast, lemongrass, green apples and Cointreau liquor. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation (this is not the corked version). Alcohol of 8.5% abv feels milder.
Outstanding beer. In my opinion one of the best references for a Belgium Blond Ale, as other Dupont, it is intense in spices, complex and with a relatively good amount of herbal hops.

330ml bottle, poured into a tulip glass. BB date of 11/2015.

L - Golden, much semi suspended sediment (yeast). There a thick, foamy white head that shrinks to a respectable 8mm thick lacing that is happy to hang around - overall great head retention.

S - Orange, yeast esters and cloves as expected. The cloves is more potent, and there is a pepper smell in there too. Very spicy

T - Fruity (banana, mandarin, orange) with a potent spiciness (pepper, paprika) and bready malts. Grainy, spicy aftertaste. Overall it is quite sour, with much less sweetness than a typical blonde.

F - medium bodied, slick texture, alcohol is noticable, crisp, dry finish.

O - I liked the sourness - I find the sweetness of some Belgian blondes and strong ales a bit off putting. This beer is more tarty than others with a similar ABV, but the crisp finish is all I remember. The spiciness is potent, which I'm not fully sold on.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe - £2.59:
Very enjoyable Belgian beer, this one was reminiscent of a saison early on and not being the biggest fan of the style I was initially worried but the funk, tart and Belgian yeast died down some and the fruit flavours and spice slowly took over. The beer was a well balanced some and despite the alcohol content it still managed to go down easily, While it's not a beer that I'd go back to time and again, I would definitely consider trying again at some point in the future.
