With a opaque dark straw color, it’s…bitter! Despite the yeasty malts and dried fruits, it’s very piney throughout the tasting, including the aftertaste with yeast bread overtones. It’s not very enjoyable overall!

12-oz. can into a big tulip. Hazy gold with a lot of suspended yeast and a thick white head that leaves a sizeable cap for some time. Very traditional Belgian on the nose: banana, clove, spice. They claim they've tried to leave the hops forward on the nose, but I don't detect much. However, there is definitely some hoppiness in the flavor. You still get the ester sweetness, but there is much more balancing bitterness than there typically is in the style. Mouthfeel is a little thin and slick.

poured from a 12 oz canwith a three finger head lasting a while. A strong fruity aroma i thought this would be aweful or awesome. the aroma was grape, fig and plum, the taste decisively exceeded the aroma with fruit yeast coriander a surprising floral and grassy hop presence and a slight taste of pepper. I think anybody who has drank at least two craft ales could have easily spoted at least four if not five different flavor components. this was my first wicked weed beer and i hope to find more in central Tennessee great beer.

This is a very aromatic and sweet Belgian Pale Ale. The beer is very easy to drink and pair with some food while somewhat cold but once it warms up the flavors of the yeast become more pronounced (not in a bad way). A very nice beer with very little in the way of hops as per the style of course.

Solid Belgian blonde ale with nice bubblegum/banana ester aroma and flavor. Dry finish with a subtle grassy hoppiness which provides a slight bitterness.

One finger head persisting in a nice foamy layer. Nice straw gold color. Bready yeasty smell very pleasant. Apple pear and slight spice tells you this was a well fermented Belgian yeast - fruity eaters dominate but back palate confirms noble hops stand guard providing balance against the fruit. Nice dry finish and noticeable but not overwhelming coriander. Acknowledging this is now an AB/InBev product, it’s still a solid Belgian Pale.
