Surprised ratings are so low. Lovely Belgian blonde with a good amount of fruity esthers and phenols. Incredibly smooth and balanced for an 8.5% beer.

A beer that is quite subdued in taste for it's strength and doesn't strike any particular note. It is rather highly carbonated and is enjoyable at most usual temperatures for Belgian beers or bières de garde. It doesn't have any major qualities but it does not have any major fault either, and reminds of better beers (ex: Duvel) rather than of lesser ones (ex: cheap session beers). At 3.50€ ($4.00) a liter in France it is well priced. For import buyers who would buy it in the same price range as better Belgian beers, i would not recommend it as strongly, though i wouldn't say anything bad about it either.

Cotton Candy, Bread, Spicy, Floral

Classic in appearance with a healthy dose of head from a very effervescent level of carbonation. Its bright golden hue shows off its clarity. Quite warming. From taffy to stone fruit, yeast to flour-like breadiness, and rose water to peppercorns, these qualities all work together to flaunt its true complex Belgian character. Worthy of a taste, most certainly if you dig pale Belgians with a kick.

Drinkable, easy way to get smashed with a couple of it. Tasting is difficult, lack of aromas, no flavor, and almost no feel and the palate..

Pours a straw yello, copious effervescence and white, quickly resolving head with minimal retention or lacing. Smells strongly of yeast, cloves, citrus. Tastes incredibly sweet, grainy rather than malty, minimal cloves and hops not detected , odd metallic taste mid note and bit of a syrupy finish, very grainy quality. Mouthfeel is pleasant, a lot of carbonation and alcohol notes predominate.

Overall, a good sample of a belgian blonde - perhaps on a hot summer day, lawn mower beer goes down easy and ABV well hidden. Not a particulary complex beer, but overall rather enjoyable.
Price point not good for this beer, especially given the quality. I wouldn't search this one out, but wouldn't turn it down if offered.
