3.24/5 rDev -9.5%
a hazy golden pour with a finger of head which quickly diminished. smells of honey, grass, coriander, cinnamon. a slight grassy bitterness in the flavor, tea leaves, peppery yeast. medium body with a sweet finish.. medium carbonation.
this is a decent blonde ale, nothing really outstanding about it, but pretty tasty and refreshing.

3.85/5 rDev +7.5%
Appearance - Orange-gold. Quite hazy, nearly opaque. Thin white head with little persistence.
Smell - Fruit and white bread. A spicy orange is probably most prominent.
Taste - Pale malt and citrus. Quite fruity with a good deal of sweet orange character. A little bread, a little spice.
Mouthfeel - Medium - light.
Overall - A nice refreshing summer option. Fruity and light while still identifiably beer.

poured 12oz bottle into Duvel tulip
A - Hazy dark off color yellow with a 1.5 finger bubbly white head. Dissipates quickly leaving a thin collar and no lacing.
S - Some bubble gum, sweet corn, wheat, buttered bread and yeast.
T - Tastes like bubble gum, sweet corn, wheat, buttered bread and some Belgian yeast. Hops aren't very present.
M - Light and creamy with some carbonation. Finish is somewhat buttery.
O - It's an attempt at a Belgian style PA from CW. Not great, rather average and a bit too sweet.

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass. Pours hazy dark yellow. Some white foam sits atop. Gritty yeasty nose. Chalky. Taste is a light malt. Belgian yeast throughout. Smooth mouthfeel, no evident carbonation. Good beer, not great. Nice example of the belgian pale style.

3.03/5 rDev -15.4%
Appearance: Pours a classic golden color…fairly transparent with a few bubbles percolating…no real head to speak of…(2/5)
Smell: Classic blonde Belgian ale aroma…sweet malts, yeast, citrus and floral hops throughout…wheat, banana, lemon, grapefruit, toasted grains, clove and a couple other spices…lots going on here when I get my nose deep in there…(3.5/5)
Taste: Sweet malt, yeast and tons of hoppy bitterness…citrus and floral hops all over this…malt is sweet and balances the hoppy bitterness really well…then fades, allowing floral bitterness to extend further unimpeded…the after taste does settle, not leaving anything overly bitter on the palate…finishes really clean for what’s going on here with the ingredients…(3/5)
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body…crisp flavor…carbonation does fluff a bit on the tongue and isn’t overly bitter which is nice…floral finish…(2.75/5)
Overall: This is good…it’s light, crisp and refreshing…a summer seasonal that would be fantastic on a hot day chillin’ by the beach…it’s still good now as the weather is turning…the sweet floral, citrus and bitterness all play well together, there isn’t too much of anything even though there is a ton happening…absolutely no sign of alcohol heat in the taste…classic Belgian blonde, it’s a flavor that's worth dabbling into…there could be a bit more spice added that would take this to another level, but it is solid for what it’s trying to do and worth drinking again in the future…(3/5)
