Pours golden yellow with a good white head. The nose is honey, cloves, pepper and light pine. The taste is high sweet and medium bitter. The texture is a little oily at first but cleans up with length. The body is medium and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a very light orange. Has a soft bite to it with plenty of hops all around. The Belgian side of the equation is less than expected but I enjoyed it and I hope to try it again to get a clearer feel for it.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2013
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Translucent golden, large frothy white head, nice lacing, light carbonation.   Soft mealy dank nose.   Not hoppy, and not terribly bright in terms of Belgian aromas.   Smells very American in its mealiness.   Bright mealiness on the tongue, thankfully not too heavy.   Little hop bite that comes across more of an astringent bitterness than hops.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Strong straw notes, which is perhaps why the astringency.   I can see the strong blonde, but IPA?   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with a soft hop bite, but moreso a bright mealiness that has some astringent aspects.   Not as much of an IPA as it is a strong blonde ale.   Tiz okay.

Bule (857) - California, USA - APR 25, 2013
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a golden color without much head. Slight Belgian yeast taste and strong hop flavors that don't seem to go together too well.

10oz pour, at Tylers Apex. Good aroma,.sweet spiced. Big yeasty scent, coriander. Clean golden orange color, good initial head that faded quick, little to no lace. sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Good. On the yeast spice side of things. Yeast lingers on finish.

b3shine (5819) - Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good; a fairly transparent blonde wih foamy off-white head and lively carbonation. Smells of Belgian yeast and mild hops with an average mouthfeel. Underwhelming (and more like a BPA).
