Enjoyed from the 750 ml bottle, this Belgian ale pours a luminous amber golden color with a frothy white head that dissipates to a nice thin pool and ring with light soapy lacing. Nose of banana, yeasty bread, light honey, light clove, and light herbal hops. Flavors are lightly sweet to the sides with light banana esters and sweet bread flavors coming in on the back. A light pepper and clove flavor are detectable upon warming. Mouth feel is highly carbonated and has a light herbal hop finish. A solid blonde ale from a good Belgian brewery.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/6/2014. Pours slightly cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger foamy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of pear, apple, lemon, orange peel, banana, honey, bread, clove, pepper, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of fruity/spicy ester notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of pear, apple, lemon, orange peel, bread, honey, banana, clove, pepper, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, citrus, bread, honey, clove, pepper, light banana, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Belgian blond ale. All around nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy ester flavors with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. No complaints at all really; a very enjoyable offering.

750 ml bottle. Pours deep golden with thin white, long lasting head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of barnyard yeast, ripe pears and biscuit malt. Body is full and smooth. Taste is very spicy, fruity with biscuit malt and caramel in the background. Finish is long and spicy. Excellent brew.

Amber orange color with lots of head with good retention.
Aroma of malt, oranges, and banana yeast.
Nice zesty flavor of orange peel, brown sugar, spices and earthy and grassy hops. Dry aftertaste with its residual taste of condiments.
Light body with medium carbonation, and with an effervescent sensation. Alcohol is well hidden.
Decent beer, a bit less complex and flavorful compared to other top Belgian ales, but with a good balance between drinkability and flavor.
