Clear amber colour with a 3-4 finger head that won't last too long. Smells like fresh-cut grass and some Belgian yeast, along with feint bitter hops. The taste is a bit more intense (read: hoppy) than what you'd expect from the smell, with nice citrus and tropical fruit notes on top of a sweet malty base.

A fine beer, but from the look and taste of it i think it's more of an IPA than a belgian pale ale. A not that bitter one, so it might be a good starter for people who want to try this style for the first time. Nelson Sauvin prevalent in both smell and aftertaste. The alcohol keeps itself well hidden.

A: hazy, light tan, thick foam leaving lace
S: belgian yeasty
T: muddled fruit (banana, pear) then sudden attack of bitterness, then some caramel sweetness. bitterness and sweetness seem to stick on tongue. then bitterness goes down the throat. i can trace the taste path.
M: little bit sticky for belgian blond. i was told this is like american style pale ale. may be this is along that line, but leaning towards unbalanced IPA
O: a bit too bitter for my taste and cloying (bitterness and caramel)

Nice clear amber color, not much of a head at all, but there's some nice big bubbles floating around.

Smell is light and fresh, malty, slightly grassy, some sweet touches of caramel. It's all a bit faint though.

Taste starts with some nice malts, bready, some fruits (apricots, later on grapefruits and light banana touches) then bitterness kicks in. Nice combination of yeast and hops, unexpectedly bitter for a blond. Aftertase has the hops, light grapefruits and a slightly metallic touch that doesn't bother me.

Mouth is medium with just the right amount of carbonation.

Overall this is a really good blond. There's a lot going on, and I really love how the beer is complex, fresh and drinkable. It might be a bit bitter for some, but I quite enjoy that.

The beer is hazy amber, an off-white head, good lacing and good curtains.

Smelling of cereals, lemon and green grass.

Sweet toffee, lemon and grape, some spices and an alkaloid bitterness.

Medium carbonation, sticky and a bit coarse, a good body.

Feels like an APA with spices.
