Bottles for summer in late May early June, as best as I can tell. Poured into Boulevard tulip.
Nice sweet malt with nice layer of spicing (a little pepper, but more than that too.).
Slightly cloudy golden and firm mostly white head. Some small lacing.
Reasonably complex flavors with good drying in the finish. Sweet up front. Mix of alcohol and spice towards the beginning too. As warms a bit the pale malt takes on oddish flavor. Maybe it's the mixing of the hops with the malt, but it's a bit off - not a flaw, just not a great mix.
Carbonation towards higher level on moderate to slightly less body.

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.

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.
