4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 can’t be made in the USA (too good) .
We came back next day to get more and it was gone.
I’m jumping on this if I ever get the chance again.

So clean looking. A nose of slightly boozy banana and a little acetone all mellowed out with bruised pear and bread. Smooth, creamy and rich. A dryer beer all the way to the finish which has a really late twitch of bitterness.

Tap at Tasty N Alder. Clear sparkling golden. Wispy white foam. Nose is fresh orange blossom, fresh yellow cake, vanilla, marzipan, spicy clove and mace. Taste is excellent mild candi sugar, vanilla, poundcake, spicy clove, subdued grassy hops and no cloying sugar. Insanely well made Abbey Tripel minus the apple pear esters. Shockingly to style and better than Delirium Tremens and its forerunners.

Tap at Eureka! University Village
Straw pour with a nice white head. Enjoyable aroma despite the inappropriate glassware: the expected banana/bubblegum/clove amora with some dusty sunshine. A nice touch of lemon (not sour, just a hint) in the flavor, doughy belgian blonde, a nice hop snap at the close reminding one of its origins. I spent more time drinking this than analyzing, but I imagine I’ll be back.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 On draught at Maher’s 5/10/13. Clear light yellow color. Floral hop and yeast aroma. Smooth malty flavor with a nice yeast kick. On draught again at 2013 Hopworks Biketobeerfest. Similar color and aroma. Taste is bubblegum, clove, slightly tart yeast, and a hint of peppery spice. Finishes with a spicy sweet aftertaste.

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.

Pours a dark yellow and this is a really great beer. Super easy to drink. Has a sparkle to it. Paired well with the burger that I had. Big Belgian yeast taste without too much funk. A certain spice set hits the tongue as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
