Looks great, although a touch tart on the old nasal passages, once in the trap, this blonde is a real goer! A foaming head which sticks, and slightly sweet with a hint of caramel about it, a real thirst quencher at 6.3%. It is definitely a Leffe blonde beater for a lowly priced beverage.

My advice is to stock up on this when you see it, and save for a summers day beer session.......that said I seldom stock up on anything before it gets quaffed!

From the bottle, it pours a hazy amber with a moderately large head that remains awhile. A bit of yeasty bread in the nose. The flavor is light and bready. Easy drinking Belgian with a bit of a kick.

330ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip glass.

A: Pours a light cloudy yellow golden color forming a huge bubbled and very soapy white head. Duvel-like, beautiful. Great retention and tons of chunky and lingering lacings left in the glass

S: Very bready. Strong Belgian bready yeasts character. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, honey and spices. Light notes of flowery hops and alcohol in the very end

T: Follows the nose. Sweet pale malts upfront followed by an intense bready taste. Again, bready Belgian yeasts profile. In overall, a slightly sweet beer. Notes of honey and diacetyl. A little bit spicy. Very light hoppy bitter finish

M: Medium body. Strong carbonation. Bread and honey in the aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. A Belgian classic with a strong Belgian Pale Ale character
