3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp, super hazy orange-tinted bronze coloured body with a nice two centimetre tall microfoamed tan head - very nice looking. Aroma of deep belgian yeast, bread, coriander seed, curacao, light spice, a touch of fragrant hops and quite a bit of wheat. Medium-bodied; Spicey flavour at first with a good deal of grass and herbs around the edges and a mellow sweetness towards the end. Aftertaste shows coriander seed and hints of yeast/bread, but a more complex and herbal finish. Overall, a very nice belgian styled blonde beer with a good yeast kick and some complex herbal flavours throughout. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle in the twelve pack sampler purchased from Harris Teeter in Arlington (Pentagon Row), Virginia on 30-July-2014 for US$22,00 sampled at home in Washington a few steps away on 04-July-2015 to celebrate Independence Day.

Fruity hop aroma. Refreshing fresh hoppy taste, floral, a bit of wheat, light and uplifting. Very decent pale ale. Drinkability good certainly.

Bottle. Unintentionally aged a year. Very foamy. Sweet nose. Dark gold. Bubbly. Syrupy sweetness probably from aging, coriander still nice and strong.
