Bottle. Cloudy, straw-yellow pour. Sweet citrus and spice on the nose, lemon and orange, some nice spice notes. Less sweet in flavour, light tartness with a nice balance of citrus, soft fruits and spice. A bit different for a Belgian Blonde.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 12 oz.? bottle, poured to snifters, showing a nearly straw, hazed, orangey gold color, with a light layer of soft white head foam, and some doily-like lacing. The nose was light yeast, a touch of phenols, soft malt, and mild, sweet esters. Light bodied, with good spritz to the carbonation, the taste was similar, with some citrusy tartness, low bitterness, a somewhat subdued alcohol presence, and a crisp & dry finish. Strong? Otherwise, no complaints.

Bought this bottle from the brewery on a recent trip to Napa (yes drove an hour to buy beer in wine country). Pours cloudy golden orange with thin, quickly disapating white head. Belgian yeast up front leads to some citrus notes and nice lingering, dry, and a tad bitter finish. Nicely balanced and very drinkable considering the abv’s.
