Tastes more like a sour than a Belgian blonde. Not a bad beer just not what I expected.

On tap. Golden color. No head or lace.

Tastes like sour notes and apples. Tart. Odd. Not bad, just not what I expected from a Belgian Ale.

Light to medium body.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

*sigh* Maybe one day I'll not be garbage at Spelunky... Anyway, this stuff pours a partly-hazy brass-gold topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light honey, mild biscuit, and funky lemon zest. The taste holds notes of mild lemon zest, light coriander, and light cracked wheat. The body straddles the line between hefty light and light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a decent little brew, but nothing really interest-piquing. This is the last of the first four offerings from O'So to hit this area, and, frankly, I haven't been close to impressed by any of them.

Wasn't expecting a sour brett beer. The label description of Belgian Style Blond is super misleading. I was really in the mood for some Trappist-influenced blond beer. Trying to put aside the disappointment of false expectations. The tartness apparently comes from rose hips. It is not super sour but is sour enough that the lightly bitter finish is an unwelcome clash. The brett in the aroma is unmistakeable, leathery, like a variety of Old Spice. This isn't the beer I wanted and is not one I likely will try again. After one sip, I'm just not begging for another.

Pours out a very murky, hazy dark golden color with a flash head and no real lacing. Lighter side of medium body, medium carbonation levels.

Smells of light floral tones (specifically rose petals) over a wheat-bready yeasty sort of graininess. Tastes slightly more like cereal grains and slightly less like yeast than the aroma had. I'm not sure why this deserves to be called a Belgian style beer, because I'm only getting the rose hips and the subtle vanilla-oak flavor which seems to be completely obscuring any abbey yeast fruitness elements that might exist...I just can't find them.

However, by no means is this a bad beer. It has a good wheat flavor to it, tempered by the florals. It just needs more complexity and more belgian aspects in order to truly shine. As it stands, it is a wheat-vanilla-rose petal beer, and nothing else.
