3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, glowing gold with a high, lacy, rocky white head; a LOT of foam on this one, and it doesn’t go away very fast. Nose is biscuity and dry with overtones of phenols, nutmeg, and tart fruit. Nutty on the tongue, with an undertone of dry acidity and a spicy astringency. Mouthfeel is, as a counterpoint, round and silky. Good, and definitely suitable for serving to the next dead king, whoever he is.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a solid straw gold with a big white foamy cap. The aroma is lemon, grain, wet grass, wet dog, and urinal. . . it’s as unappealing as it sounds. The flavour is sweet upfront, then grainy, bread, honey, bit of lemon, finishes lightly sweet and bready with a lingering note of honey.
It would be a decent offering if I could only get around the aroma.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy golden with a moderate white head that remains and leaves a minimal amount of lace. The nose has prominent grain, piney hops and Belgian spice, along with honey and pale malts. The flavour is balanced between moderately sweet pale malts, honey, citrus and grains on one hand and moderate piney bitterness with peppery spice on the other. The finish is long and hop-predominant, with subtle peppery spice and a hint of honey sweetness. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish texture and lively carbonation. Overall this is a nice Belgian style blonde ale. It is fairly complex for the ABV and quite well made. A joy to drink. 2013-09-28
