Poured from a can into a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed deep amber color with a tiny fizzy white head. The head fades super fast and leaves almost no lace on the sides of the side.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of a slightly bready and cracker like smell mixed with aromas of honey and candied sugar and a bit of light fruits of peach and apricot. Along with these smells comes some aromas of a bit of spice of coriander and clove as well as a little bit of grass and some boozy smells.
Taste – The taste begins with a fruity taste of apricot and peach mixed with lots of honey and candied sugar. The malt is of a lightly toasted biscuit malt mixed with a little bit of cracker. There is also a clove and coriander spice taste that is strong from the start and that grows stronger as the taste advances. Toward the end the apricot amps up and some light boozy tastes and just a touch of vanilla come to the tongue and leave one with a nice Belgium Strong like flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is light and crisp with a carbonation level that is slightly on the higher side. For the crisp nature and the mix of sweet, booze, and spice creates a very nice medium for the brew.
Overall – A nice blond/strong ale. Lots of flavor and a nice easy drinking feel.

I think this beer is phenomenal so strong but so smooth and I'd argue the best after taste I've ever had on a beer. Have a couple and then have a blast. Made an account just to review it.

Pours like apple juice in color. Nose also hints at apple with a cinnamon spice. Tastes good but reminds me more of a cider than beer. Very good cider.

Interesting beer. Not much on the nose except some honey vanilla.
Taste is that, with ample “minty” hop bitterness and some tasty grains. It’s kind of herbal too, but just enough sweetness from the vanilla & honey seeps through to keep it nice to sip.
Feels fairly creamy and well-carbonated,
It’s a flavorful blonde. I’d say it lives up to its name.
