16oz draft in a shaker glass. $4!

Medium gold and very slightly hazy. A finger of white froth that quickly dissipated to a ring. No lacing.

Aromas of earthy hops, citrus and a little sweet malt.

Excellent Belgian yeast flavour, bananas and clove-like phenolics predominate. A little spicy hops and just enough bitterness to balance the bready malt. Well attenuated.

Highly carbonated. Finishes crisp and dry.

Very refreshing.

L - Pours a murky golden hued with large bubbled carbonation

S -smells acidic and metallic. Sour granny smith apples and yeasty phenols.

T - Dry cloves, earthy dirt, lemongrass, faint licorice.

M - absurdly creamy. The beer erupts in volume on your palate without any harsh carbonation.

Overall - pretty damn good. I love a lower abv offering that drinks bigger than it is. This I'd probably drink again.

375 mL bottle dated 1/9/17 poured into Teku glass. 2F head poor retention, almost no lacing, no cap and ring. Beer is a clear pale gold. Nose of yeast, pear and apple, and malts. Taste follows nose with lots of deciduous fruit and Belgian malts. Light body, pretty strong carbonation that is almost unbalancing. A very nice blond ale that could use just a tad less carbonation.
