Very attractive lighter shade of gold in the appearance, white cap that goes away but lacing remains.

Yeasty aroma in a good way, underlain by spicy hops followed by caramel malt.

The aroma indicates sweetness but the flavor proves otherwise. Mildly caramely malt carries all the way through then rebounds in the aftertaste which is actually a bit richer than the initial taste impression. Hops follow along and quietly exit at the finish. If tasting this blind I would've said Belgian before asking who made it. It has those characteristics without actually screaming Belgian because I don't find clove/coriander or banana yet there's something reminiscent of Belgian brewing there.

Texture is on the lighter side of medium.

Overall this is a capably brewed Belgian Style Blonde Ale (the brewer's words) that is well balanced with good flavor. At 5% it's fairly quaffable, has enough acidity to stand up to grilled fish, doesn't challenge the hop challenged and has enough substance for the bolder flavor crowd.

Poured into a 12 oz glass it had a golden color much like a glass of tea. Smell was of yeast with a smooth but strong yeast flavor. I would say it was a good Belgium blonde. I really enjoyed sitting back and sipping it.
