COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light-hued beer was inspired by Belgian Tripels and Golden Strong ales. A high percentage of Pilsner malt and a new yeast strain we used present a lemon character in the aroma. This citrus quality carries into the flavor and finishes with a slight tartness. This beer is well balanced and smooth, making it easy to drink and sightly deceptive because of its high ABV.

Bright and very pale yellow with a rocky white head. Lemon and chalky yeast aroma - tart and lactic. Initial sweetness is quicky walloped by that tartness and a bone dry, fully attenuated finish, like chewing on Meyer lemon rind. Tastes as if they snuck some New Zealand hops in there. Evident alcohol. Highly carbonated, but mercifully, less than the benchmark - Duvel, and the lemon notes are an interesting addition. I believe the student has surpassed the master.

Bottle, tęd by me... in the library... just now.
Pours a perfectly pale golden color with a light haze a big head and lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a lot of spiciness, banana & baguette. Lightly floral and sweet smelling, inviting enough for sure.

The flavor is similar to the aroma really, light fruity banana and lemon notes, a moderate alcohol flavor, some big spiciness and floral bitterness. The sweetness level is pretty well in check although this isnt what Id consider a "dry" beer.

A nice American made Belgian strong to be sure.

Sampled at the brewery, 11/25/15. Cloudy golden orange color with a bubbly head. Very drinkable and refreshing Belgian Blonde with a clean aroma and flavor. Gets pretty peppery on the finish.

750ml. Cloudy yellow-tan body. Foamy white head. Kind of an odd aroma, not what Id expect from the style at least. Lemony tinged malt tones. Almost has high temperature US saison tones. Wheat. Oats. Like a Double Wit. OK.

DrunkSanta410 (804) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy golden color, bubbly white head, dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is spice, banana, faint yeast, faint citrus. Taste is light, a bit of dough, faint banana and spice, faint citrus. Some yeast and a dry finish. Light to medium body, high carbonation. Effervescent mouthfeel, dry finish with a bit of booziness burning in the aftertaste. Average. Did enjoy it.

Hazy golden pour from a bottle. Nice white head and white lacing. Citrus nose with some Belgian phenolics. Slightly fruity taste, some funky bitterness. Nice.

This beer has a cloudy yellow color and lemon and wheat aroma. My buddy picked up a hint of marshmallow but i think he is crazy. Flavor has a citrus flavor with the same wheat flavor. Paired with mozzarella salad.
