Nutty-ness combines well with the yeast fruitiness. Dry with a semi sweet aftertaste. Good flavor but doesnít expand. Not an amazing beer but good for what it is.

Pours a golden orange with a touch of haze and a nice soapy white head with nice sticky lacing. Aroma is yeast, sweet malts, bananas, and a little metallic. Flavor is slightly metallic, sweet malts, bananas, cloves, dough, bread, fruits, yeast, a little bit of hop bitterness. Other than the slight metallic problem this is pretty good.

Pours a golden yellow with a coupe of fingers of head. Nice lacing. Smell is yeasty and sweet. Taste is of yeast, malt and banana. Slight alcohol taste at the end of each sip but itís not overpowering. Not a bad brew but itís a tad sweet. Not one of the better Belgians that Iíve tasted.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Easy to drink, light sweetness, some hints of fruit, spice. Sweetness tends to be too much, but overall not too bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Itís been awhile since I enjoyed a refreshing Belgian blonde, so this was easy to drink on a hot afternoon. The aroma is sweet, fruity and some yeast. Dried fruit, grassy bitterness, sweet with an alcohol bite to it. Color is golden yellow with a large pillowy head. Nice lacing.

Color of wet wheat. Not much head retention. Cane sugar, yeast, and light fruits in the nose. Some apple and apricot in the sweet-malty taste over a medium mouthfeel. Itís a nice beer if slightly cloying.

NIMBLE BENDER GROG !
This beer smacks of gold.. Its gold colour and smooth texture. Few bubbles and barely any head. The first taste is lagery but going down it hints at more. Very drinkable, perhaps too so at the 6.7% strength. Needs perhaps to do more though and eminently a bit sweet
