11.2oz bottle poured into a goblet.

Pours a slightly hazy orangey-gold with a rock solid white head. Head retention and lacing are absolutely outstanding.

Smell is quite yeasty with some orange and coriander notes. Also a little grassy and flowery.

The taste picks up on quite a bit of honey along with orange and coriander. Some apple is present along with banana. The beer finishes quite try with just a light bitterness. Carbonation is very high on this one leading to a prickly mouthfeel that is just a little bit too much.

Overall a decent beer although better examples of this style are out there.

330ml bottle poured in a Leffe chalice.

A: Pours a pale yellow color with a big white fluffy head. Small retention and only few lacings left

S: Deliciously spicy. Quite sweet, reminds honey, vanilla, mellon, coriander and pepper. Orange zest. Herbs and flowery hops

T: Quite spicy beer. Malts, belgian yeasts, candy sugar, coriander, melon and pepper. Sweet upfront followed by a dry taste and a considerable bitter hoppy end

M: Heavy body, medium carbonation. Balanced sweet bitterness

O: Good drinkability. Very Belgian. Great beer

A blonde ale with white head that fades. There is aroma of mint (not sure where this comes from), yeast, and some hints of spicy hops. The flavor brings this on in full spirit. I just don't get this one. I rarely say it, but too dry, too carbonated, and yet not awful. There are just too many interesting and tasty elements in this one. I want to dislike it but there's something here that makes me interested.

On tap at Brasserie Beck in Washington, DC. Described on the menu as a Brasserie Beck exclusive, but I wouldn't be surprised to see this springing up on tap around the country--or am I missing somehing?

Body is translucent but hazy gold. Slight head resolves to a ring with slight lacing.

Aroma of light malt, banana, and candi sugar.

Tastes of light malt, banana, and coriander. There is a subtle amount of hops in the dry finish. Also, a bit of toffee and candi sugar.

Overall, a decent Belgian blonde strong ale. But not so strong at 7.5% ABV.

On tap at Max's.

The beer pours a pale gold color with good head retention and considerable lacing. The nose is attractive, showing waxy honey, vanilla, light cherry and considerable underlying spice. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this easy to appreciate and enjoy Belgian blond. There's also some light bitterness in the finish, which helps to counter the moderate at most sweetnesss. This beer is surprisingly light, crisp and refreshing, with the alcohol integrated perfectly into the flavor profile.

While nothing mind blowing, this is just a delightful, delicious, easy to drink Belgian blond.

The Trappist. Poured a mildly hazy light yellow, minor head, minor lacing.

Yeast, fruity aroma has notes of spices and pepper.

Taste is grainy and yeasty, the fruits not near as strong as the nose hinted. Mild but distinct hop bite, would improve if made sharper. Very minor bitterness trails off in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light and crisp.

This pours a clear golden colour with a big fluffy white head that hangs around.

It says that it is brewed with Vitamin C and the first thing I get on the nose is Barocca! That blows off to leave some spicy Belgian yeastiness. Maybe some apple.

A lot more apple on the palate. Green apple. Some medicinal notes and the spiciness, pepper? Alcohol only comes in at the end.

Medium bodied with a very high carbonation.

Not the best that these guys produce but still a bloody nice beer,
