Not my "cup of tea" at all.

I picked up some fruity (banana maybe?) aromas that didn't really convert to taste. Not much to say in terms of a body. The head only lasted fo 20-30 seconds after pouring.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, orange-gold body with a smallish, short-lived, white head.

Smell: Lightly musty, lightly sourish bread given a quick, curt dunk in light-colored syrup for a bit of perceived sweetness alongside noticeable clove and 'nana notes.

Taste: Sweet, bready with a relatively firm graininess. Spicy phenolics, a touch of honey and some metallic bananas. Takes a slight sourish turn once you round the midway and holds there. More of the banana, clove on a rather tangy, twangy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Some of its aspects are a bit too assertive for me, we're left missing the subtlety and gracefulness of its inspired-by brethren.

Oh. Em. Gee. I’m not sure what I expected when I read “Belgian-style blonde”, but this is fantastic! Perfect Belgian sourness with blonde ale maltiness!

Admittedly, I have a tough time getting behind the belgian pale ale. Just doesn't do it for me.

That being said, this is a decent example of the style. Crisp, banana flavored.

Had it on draft on a Christmas road trip,through Nashville. Golden yellow color, thin head and ok lacing. Sweet floral smell. Nice fresh taste that is lemony with bananas, a bit of orange. A pleasant beer!
