3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle. Pours a hazy, pale orange with massive fluffy white head, excellent retention. Poured it a bit overzealous so I got some of the sediment in there, but no problem. Nose is hay, Belgian yeast, lemon. Mouth is slightly bitter up front, spicy yeast, orange rind, grass, a bit of malty cereal, fades into bread and some lingering hoppy bitterness. Nice little beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep and low toned, with subtle nuances and a bitter edge. Earthy, dusty floorboard, savory, Unami, yeast layers, with bitter citrus notes. Deep and complex, while also being understated and delicate. An impressive brew which requires your attention to fully appreciate, though is still super easy to mindlessly drink. Medium bodied. Great mouthfeel. Lingering finish of above mentioned flavors. DRY. Very well made. Very modest for such a fine beer. Yeast is definitely the showcased element here. I think this is a great example of a Belgian blonde ale. Unlike the sweet, tropical, spiced American blondes like Pranqster, etc.
