"Akin to a Grisette, that is a low alcohol Belgian-style Blonde Ale. Hop forward with a lighter body. Served unfiltered."

Served in a pint glass, the brew appears a pale straw color with a thin white cap. Parchy to webby lacing effect sticks to the glass. A light swirl revives the cap.

The smell includes bubblegum, clove, fruit and peppery spices from the yeast. Overall not a bold or aggressive offering, just well balanced and clean smelling.

The taste is dry and peppery with a pear to apple skin flavoring. Thete is some clove spiciness and a bitterness from the hops that is grassy to herbal. A very faint straw grain inclusion is present but without adding any sweetness.

This is a very light bodied brew that is crisp and lively with carbonation. It is a fairly easy drinking sessionable offering that I could drink a few of if given the opportunity. Nothing outrageous here but worth checking out if the opportunity presets itself.
