I'm not sure why I'm exploring as many lighter beers as I am lately (perhaps it's because of my time spent in Montreal hunched over pitchers of Boreale blonde), but I generally enjoyed this beer overall though this Belgian style ale did go down a bit sweet for me (as Belgians do). This beer looks golden. Overall, a drinkable and refreshing blonde. When it comes to blondes, I wouldn't mind checking out more that are less sweet and a bit hoppier.

Poured into a small, straight, narrow glass: color is effervescent gold; head is essentially nonexistent.

Smell is pleasant belgian yeast quality: nice off flavors of banana, apple and phenols; some light breadiness and no hop qualities noted.

Taste is also pleasant, fairly neutral belgian yeast qualities, a different taste than I expected based on the name, but happy with this take on a belgian pale ale/blonde style.

Mouthfeel is very good and typical of the style, a nice lingering sweetness that is dried out by the yeast fermentation.

Overall, a good belgian style ale and will look for it again.
