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.

50cl can from the Simply Market in France: This one pours a crystal clear, light golden yellow color. There was a bit of a white head on it that left some lacing. Surprisingly light aroma for an 8.5% beer. It is a bit musty and grainy. Maybe a touch peppery. The taste is rather non-descript. It tries to have some tripel notes (yeasty, clove, etc.) but they are in the background. A bit of alcohol, notes of adjuncts. Just strong with minimal flavor. I guess it serves a purpose...
