2.012 on cork. Had 5/2013.
This was fantastic. A complete surprise, as it came from a friend (a civilian—aka not a beer geek) who received it in a bet a year ago. Style bias perhaps but this was no where on my radar and now I’m mildly obsessed with getting another bottle of it.
This pours a hazy golden with tight white foaming. It has a surprisingly spicy aroma, peppery and floral. There’s almost a muted hop presence with a herbaceous floral note on it. The flavor has more of the spicy characteristic. Really pleasing and terrifically effervescent. I found it ended with the characteristic Dupont yeasty floral notes & rounded finish. I was pleasantly surprised by this.
Don’t be fooled by the “blonde ale” on the label—this is anything but your run of the mill (bland) blonde ale.

Overall - One of my new favorite belgians. Core addition to your tasting experience.
A: One must observe the many lines of fine champagne bubbles rising in this golden beer to appreciate how well crated and attractive it is. Continuous necklaces of pin point bubbles, finer than any champagne, build a billowing parchment colored head that lasts and laces.
A: The nose is dominated by barnyard Belgian yeast, hay, grass, wet spring, and then early orchard fruit with peppery spice. As expected, and then more. (Orchard, wet grass, you dont quite know what...)
T: follows the smell, but bigger, brighter, and lots of apple orchard fruit. Like you remember it the first time as a kid apple picking in October. Some wood, some spice cabinet, and a long, apple, pear finish with unusual spice cabinet and cedar.
MF: Great finish.
O: As a reviewer wrote the beer offers it all: "sweetness, sourness, dryness, funkiness, fruitiness and spiciness". Fruit: apples, pears and apricots. Sweet dominates early, bitter and dry dominates late.
Must try along with all great Belgians.
