On tap in Greenville, SC.

Pours with a clear golden body topped by a bubbly white head.
Aroma: mixed fruit jam; apple and pear juice. Light bread.
Flavor: much better than the aroma but still fruity and bready. Good bitter/sweet balance. Modest complexity.
Feel: medium+ body. Smooth.

Light golden color with excellent cap and lacing.

Aroma of ripe golden fruit with clean yeast highlights and touches of spice.

Taste like sun ripened fruit that the wind has dusted with spices. I find little hop presence but that absence is not missed because it isn't needed. Light enough to accompany food and rich enough to be the desert.

A good example of what Belgian Ale is all about. Complex, rich, sophisticated yet not too much, as Goldilocks would say it's just right.

L: golden color. Gives off a decent amount of head that disolves quite rapid.lacing on the glass is very good . unfiltered and cloudy

S: bready like bisquits and toast. Citrus fruits like oranges and lemons ,some floral hop notes

T&F: much as it's aroma. Bread ,bisquits.caramel malts,some citrus notes and also some floral hop notes. Well rounded and a fresh finish in the taste. Bitterness in the aftertaste is balanced ok.the bready taste is most dominant in the start. I honestly think the look and the aroma was better than the taste

O: a decent blond beer. Drinkable and enjoyable, but compared to other belgian blondes this is far from the best I have had.

Enjoyed from the 11.2 oz bottle in a snifter via a Christmas gift---Thanks Tony!

Pours a dark golden amber with a good amount of sediment, thick white foam that subsides to a thick ring, thin layer, and excellent lacing. Nose of Belgian candy sugars, subtle herbal hop notes, and fresh yeast bread with a touch of orchard fruits of apple and pear. Flavors follow the nose with candy sugars up front and on the sides that give way to a yeasty bread note with a touch of light grain and candy apples on the back with a light herbal hop note. Medium dry finish, medium carbonation, lively yeast. Very nice.

Cheers

Pours a clear light gold with a ton of floaties. That being said, the foam and lacing are outstanding.

It smells malty, fruity, sweet with caramel malt.

Taste matches the smell. Over a year old and still a decent drinker. I imagine this being very good fresh.
