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.

Sampled on draught. Clear orange gold with a foaming white head. Aromas of pear drops and a taste of candy, pear drops and Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Some bitterness to offset the sweetness. Good mouthfeel. Interesting, but not a classic. Might appeal to lovers of bubblegum.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy holden with a firm head. Aroma is esters, slight pepper, slight citrus, distinct dupont smell. Estery palate, grassy but overpowered by esters. My least favorite from this great brewery.

Keg at CBC Islington. Orange, light haze, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is yeasty, spice and honey. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is spice, tangerine, yeast and candi sugar. Quite nice overall. Has that Belgian vibe they were looking for.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
75cl bottle, shared with friends. Served in Tulip. Pours golden-orange with white head. Both aroma and taste are candy, yeast, cereals banana and some hops. Very lemony on the palate, similar to a Saison beer. Mouthfeel is medium with decent carbonation. Nothing incredible, regular Belgian stuff is a much better option than this.
