Corked bottle served in chalice. Nice cork pop.
Yellow gold with big head at first that disappears quickly.
Aroma of amber malt, honey, light wheat.
Significant carbonation gives a nice mouthfeel with the sweet malts.
Refreshing flavors of light sweet malts and subtle flavors of white pepper, light rosemary, clove, candy sugar, alcohol, bread, pear, a subtle touch of saison characteristics, grapefruit rind & other tasty Belgian yeast esters.
I get a special deal on this beer and have gone through half a dozen by myself and I've really gotten to enjoy it...very easy drinking, nice body, some complexity, significant carbonation and combined sweetness and dry finish. Reminds me a bit of St Bernardus Triple, Triple Karmeliet, and Watou Triple, even though this is a blonde. I'll buy it again!

Very good blonde. Abundance of flavor and a really good head on it! Highly suggested. 8.5% gets it done!

Pours foamy with a big aroma of yeast, sweet malt and a hint of hops.

Appearance: pale gold, hazy. Big fluffy white head. Some distinct lacing if you like that.

Smell: Fresh belgian yeast. reminds me of the smell of opening a new batch of yeast for brewing. There is a light bready-fruitiness and some sweetness to the aroma. Very pleasing and inviting. I smell this beer and can't wait to taste it.

Taste: Oh wow, so nice. (Of course it changes as it warms up) but I get a lot of pilsner malt, light honey flavors, pears (almost sort of appl-y), a little bit of banana, sweetish, but with a little zing of hop and carbonation. A smooth, slightly sweet ride over the tongue with a fairly balanced, clean finish. No cloying flavors after the fact.

Mouth Feel: Smooth, with delicate bubbles and medium to light body. Does not get in the way of the taste.

Over-all. A very drinkable beer, not too complex but interesting. Great balance, leaning towards sweet as it warms past about about 56F. Almost a session beer, if it were not 8.5% abv.

Pours medium gold with a foamy white head. Splashy lace.

Tropical fruit, woody vanilla in the nose with some nice yeasty malt.

nice fruit/booze balance, with tropical notes and grain and booze and a little bitterness. Some vanilla and wood on the palate, light boozy bitter and fruity in the finish. Lovely brew. Very smooth.

Medium body, nice carbonation.

Nice version of the style. Highly drinkable and smooth.

Appearance: A bursting head with rocky and voluminous form. Crystal clear, and almost totally bright yellow. Silvery colored head. Head retention and lacing are very very nice. Beautiful bubbles on the head after it sits.

Nose: Lemon meringue, lime, hint of white crackers and banana.

Taste: Perfect malt balance. A little medicine, aspirin, sweet bread, and meringue.

Notes: Give this one a try!
