3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a medium to slightliy dark yellow color, with an ample white head. The nose shows a pleasant, but somewhat surprising level of residual malt sweetness, along with less prevalent notes of yeast-derived fruit esters. The "Belgian Ale" strain seems to be the order of the day. The palate is drier than the aroma would seem to indicate, showing, malt, but more so a spicy, slightly fruity/phenolic, and almost Saison-like profile. Carbonation is assertive but not overbearing; mouthfeel is pleasant. The finish is nicely dry, leaving lingering notes of summer spices and a tinge of hop bitterness. Overall, a beautifully styled Belgian Blonde, surely one of the better examples of the style.

Fruity, peppery aroma. Not quite like a saison. Slightly fruity also. Think head though. Smooth beer with a creamy body. Finished with a hint of orange rind.

The color is that of golden straw, with about a good one finger thick foamy head atop a beer that has above average carbonation.
The aroma is like a dry pilsner malt with a touch of beligum yeast and subtle nuances of fruity esters, pears seems about right.
Balanced flavors of slightly dry malts, fruity esters.
Somewhat thin mouthfeel dry tasting with bitterness well into the aftertaste.
A well made beer that has a bit of a pilsner taste and aroma quality to it.
Very drink worthy.

Hazy golden. Large frothy white head, lasting with lots of lacing. Very pleasant Belgian aroma, not too sweet or spiced. Likewise with flavor, not too sweet or spiced or fruity. Love the balance. Lighter medium body. Soft. Nice dry grassy finish. Well crafted. I really enjoyed this.

Orange-gold pour, small white head. Great aroma of tropical fruits, spices, and yeast. Flavor is of fresh peach and other sweet fruits, with some nice spiciness.

Tap at Parry's in highland ranch. Aroma is banana and clove. Pours cloudy golden colored with a thin white head and some lacing. Taste is generally Belgian with banana and clove. Finishes smooth with the same flavors aforementioned. Good Belgian style.
