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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Joli nez de fruits jaunes et céréales. Belles notes épicées. En bouche, texture incroyablement soyeuse... On retrouve toute de suite les fruits jaunes, accompagnés du caramel du malt. L’amertume arrive petit à petit. Finale très sèche et amère sur les épices et les fruits.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Monk’s Cafe: It was a lower lighting, but it appeared to be a fairly clear amber color. There was a big frothy off-white head on it that left some lacing. It has a nice nose. A fairly good amount of hops: mainly grapefruit and pine. A little bit of pepperiness and yeast. The taste is very good. It has a bit of a bite. Citrus and earthiness, some pepper, yeast and breadiness. Nice.

Poured from bottle, pours a hazy yellow with a fizzy yellow head and some spotty lacing, the aroma is yeasty with a touch of fruit and lemon grass as well, the flavor has a musky front end with some yeast and fruit showing in the finish, smooth mouthfeel, ok.
