Tao @ Pok Pok Noi... Poured pale golden with a retaining white head. Nice floral notes with a delicate mouthfeel. Worked well with the spicy food. Yeast spices and nice Belgian yeast characters going on. Some hop bitterness but overall balanced and smooth. Some citrus with other light fruits too.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours straw in color with a subtle haze. Bright, clean fruity belgian nose with a bit of hops... bordering on pilsener. Light sweet and light bitter flavors. Medium body, creamy texture, good carbonation and a dry, light bitter finish. Very well made. Surprisingly bitter for a Belgian-style blond.

Had this on tap at Bazi, Hawthorne, Portland. Pale straw with white head. Silky smooth flavors and aroma were divine. Very pleasant clean, dry, hop nip. Quality Belgian characteristics. Surprised me it was a strong ale.
I told my friend this canít be made in the USA (too good) .
We came back next day to get more and it was gone.
Iím jumping on this if I ever get the chance again.

On tap at the brewery. Strong Belgian yeast aroma with some spice. Clear apple juice/straw color with great lace. Light fruit -- pear and peach -- aromas. Good bitter, earthy aftertaste. Thin-medium body. This could be a Belgian lunch-time brew. The yeast notes are perhaps a bit too strong. But really a solid brew.
