look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden color with a big head.

Smell: Malty, sweet and wheaty.

Taste: Definitely tastes like a Belgian Blonde Ale and has caramel notes to it as well as light spices and sugar. Light and bready.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth and creamy with balanced carbonation; crisp; medium-bodied.

Overall: I found this to be a very nice Belgian Ale. I don’t always like beers that fall under the Blonde category but this was very agreeable and easy to sip. It would be a nice compliment when paired with the right meal.

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!

750 ml bottle, $4.39.

A slow gusher, it pours a light gold with a 3 finger head of foam and does well with the lacing.

The smell is yeasty, fruity, malty, slight barnyard aroma, and bitter. Wow, that's a lot going on.

It starts of tasting sweet, candi sugar like, some bitterness in between and in the finish, yeasty, light flavour of maybe pitted fruit. Barnyard flavour...only a hint. It just might be a bit too sweet for me but overall, I'm digging it.

On the low end of medium bodied and with full carbonation, the mouthfeel is good. The big abv does show up but mostly after the swallow.

An interesting brew, labelled as a Belgian Golden Ale, and more than worth the money I paid for it. I'll be having more.(This is my 3rd bottle!)
