A: Pours a hazy yellow with two fingers of white head that fades into a cap with great lacing.

S: Light spice notes up front with some sweet fruits. Light yeasty notes bring up the finish.

T: Spices notes up front with a lot of bready characters with some dry yeast notes as well. There are some slightly tart fruit notes as well.

M: Medium-light body with highish carbonation, this beer is is nice and dry.

O: An alright beer overall, though a bit bland and lacking depth. It has a nice body, but is just boring.

Poured into a St. Feuillien goblet...

Beautiful in the glass... Golden and beautiful with a nice fluffy head....

Lots of spicy yeastiness present in the aromas as well as a little bit of apple peel... Maybe some Belgian sugars.... this may be a little barnyard-ish as well...

There's a barnyard yeastiness to this that I don't find in others of the style and I like it. It almost gives it a saison feel to it. Very earthy and sort of funky... There's a sweetness here too but the majority of what I get from this is this earthy funkiness that just reeks of natural fermentation... Very delicious and I don't detect any booze at all...

A delicious example of the style... I really enjoyed this beer... Paired beautifully with some Pad Thai and a bowl of hot and sour soup

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.
