3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of Belgina yeast, citrus, flowers, and even hints of banana. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a mostly lasting white head and rings of lacing. The taste is floral, yet overall bitter in nature. Floral notes up front with some Belgian yeast, citrus and hints of caramel in the middle, with a bready, yet dry hoppy finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, I liked this beer. Varied tastes with a pleasing dry finish…what’s not to like?

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. ABV 7.4% per the label. Pours a thick, tiny bubbled, well retained white head, with extensive lacing, over a hazy gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is light Pils malts, with hints of lemon, pear, heavier resin.....taste is light malts with hints of lemon, pear, finishing with a lingering peppery bitterness....mouth feel light of medium, slightly astringent, alcohol hidden, carbonation adds light spritz. This is a nicely balanced, pleasantly complex beer in both aroma and flavor, with a clean refreshing bitter finish. Unfortunately, it really does not meet the Blonde Ale style. It is hazy probably from dry hopping, when it should be clear. Also, and this was intentional by the brewers, it has way too much hop character. However, I think it is a well done experiment.
