A cloudy Albert on color with a white head. Fruity with apricot and Belgian character. Flavor is sweet with stove fruit, and a touch of tropical fruit flavor. Medium light body, with fairly high carbonation. Overall pretty tasty.

Nice golden opaque pour with a healthy amount of foam. Smell is sweet and slightly hoppy. Reminds me of honey almost. Taste is over lightly sweet and bitter. A bit bready and wheaty. There are some fruit notes as well as one would expect form the addition of hops, but they really don't add that much to the flavor profile. Goes down very smooth, but doesn't seem to have much body. Overall, nothing too impressive, but definitely a nice Belgian style and I would drink again.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter. This one is 2017 release with Citra and Motueka hops.

Hazy bright golden yellow in color, the pour builds up very thick fluffy white head that stands with very good retention before slowly subsiding to a long-lasting bubble film atop and leaving lots of lacing patch and spot here and there.

Tropical and fruity hops lead through a nose with notes of citrus, passion fruit, lime, kiwi, grape, resin, and grass while there is an evidence of Belgian yeast with its ester of ripe pear, apple, and peach along with some peppery spice, just a little bit funk, and dryness.

The taste has some real bitterness from the hop profile while hop also provides its tropical and fruity flavors of citrus, passion fruit, lime, kiwi, grape, resin, and grass just like the aroma. Ripe and fresh pear, apple, peach, spiciness, slight funk, and dryness from yeast follow up closely. The end and aftertaste is left with some residual fruitiness and sweetness.

Medium body with super smooth mouthfeel and very soft effervescence from its active and quite lively carbonation, the feeling is crisp and refreshing from all the fruity characters while the finish is very dry that will quickly lead to the next sip.

Great Belgian Blonde Ale with a twist of American hop, it is quite hoppy with all those tropical and resin characters while Belgian yeast provides its unique blend. Alcohol is perfectly concealed.

10oz snifter on tap at THG.

A: Golden color, lightly hazy, with a thin cap of foam that faded into a fuzzy collar. Sheets of lace were left down the glass.
S: Sweet golden fruits, apple juice, and golden pear skins stand out. Earthy hop bitterness, kiss of citrus. Hints of crisp grains and doughy yeast poke through as well.
T: Follows the nose with sweet golden fruits followed by peppery Belgian yeast and earthy spice, light, earthy, and floral hop in the finish, with slight mint in the aftertaste. Bitter finish full of spice, woody almost spruce tip flavor, bitterness is slightly medical. Fruity throughout, sweet.
M: Fluffy and frothy ample carbonation that has a tingly bite to it but is overall fluffy and smooth. Smooth mouthfeel, spicy and sweet.
O: Not as dry as my favorite beers of the style, but very spicy, smooth and flavorful. Fruity throughout; easy to drink.
