look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On-tap at the source,

A: Pours a nice clear gold with a medium white head, solid lace.

S: Nice bready malt nose, floral hops with a hint of earth.

T: Straightforward malt flavour, bread, crisp flavour. Nice hop backing. Not a huge complexity, but a solid effort.

M: Crisp, clean, light-bodied, easy drinking.

O: Not a huge fan of this, certainly solid, nice enough. I don't see a lot of Belgian singles out so this was enjoyable to try.

On-tap at Rock & Brews, El Segundo, CA

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of pale malts are present in the nose along with hints of Belgian yeast.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and has hints of sweetness among the flavors of pale malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems a little maltier and has less yeast compared to other beers in the style.
