750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, best before 2/7/2016. Pours lightly cloudy bright golden amber color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with plenty of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, floral, grass, wheat, light honey, light bread, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, floral, grass, wheat, bread, light honey, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, banana, clove, pepper, wheat, light honey, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Excellent balance and complexity of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent Belgian blonde ale. All around great balance and complexity of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. Really enjoyed this one.

Blonde-greenish color, slightly opalescent, wih a creamy and abundant foam.
Nose of ripe fruit, peach, yeast and sugar, withount being too heavy.
Simila taste, full, but again, not too heavy.
Average aftertaste, again with fuity and tropical notes.
Belgian blond, decent, average. Drinkable.
