Given that this beer is ABV 6.5% and is a very large champagne type bottle whatís not to like? So Iíve left it a couple of days to allow sober reflection. A nice drinkable Belgian blonde ale. Didnít get the "three continents of hops". This is not the knome! However it is the Belgium style yeast that gives the spicey fruity charaxter which I am gaining in appreciation.

ARH (911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a high ball glass. The aroma has a honey sweetness and a dry spice to it with undertones or oranges and toast as well as a bit of a waxy crayon. Thereís a hint of banana and clove on the nose late. Itís a clear, pale - gold color with a filmy thin white head that has only light levels of retention and lace. The flavor is a medium bittersweet. The texture is oily, and a bit thick with a zippy, light carbonation. The medium body is spicy with notes of herbs, honey and/or bitter marmalade and toast. It finishes crisp with clove and bitter lemon notes as well as a notable crayon. The aftertaste is lightly cloying with herb, bread crust, and citric acid. Overall, specifically in the finish and aftertaste, itís not too dissimilar to a mild, floral IPA.

Bottle, Londis, Penny Lane, Liverpool. Poured a clearish orange colour with a small white head. Nose was slightly fruity with some yeast presence. Sweetish flavour with some notes of malt, citrus and yeast. Had a vaguely Belgian feel to it but really nothing to write home about. Whatís all this guff about best ale over 5% in the UK as well?! & donít show the bottle to any Riot Grrrls either.
