4 oz draft pour at ChurchKey. Hazy yellow with off-white head. Aromas of lemons, floral and grassy notes. Tastes of lemon, floral and grassy notes, subtle tartness. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Decent attempt but doesn’t really stand out for me.

Six cans. Given the associations we have about Belgian beer here in the States, it seems strange to see it labeled as working class. Apparently, the style does have proletarian roots. Light straw color, spicy aroma, flimsy white head, but it leaves good lacing. Fairly standard Belgian blonde, with good amount of spicy flavor. Could pass for a saison, given the looseness of that style. No funk.

This poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was earthy, cracked wheat, lemon Peel and.vanilla sweetness. Flavor was very well balanced, light tartness, wheat grain, some.marshmellow and yeast. Tasty stuff.

Poured from 12oz can. Not a bad beer, but not necessarily a good one either. Nothin remarkable in terms of flavor or appeal. Could be looked at a a nice option to the corporate light beers i suppose.

A hazy but not quite opaque light piss yellow pour with moderate white lacing. Aroma is malt, hop, citrus, wheat. Taste is the same. Good flavor which isn’t too sweet; well balanced. Spice kicks in as well as it gets malty on the finish. Sticky on the back end. Sessionable beyond belief.

When I think of a hazy thirst quencher, this one is that should set the standard. It isn’t heavy or over the top - just full flavored and delicious. I like it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: very light gold, a little hazy, with a huge, fluffy, meringue of bright white head that lasts forever. Aroma: sweet and crackery, with notes of champagne, citrus zest, graham cracker, cracked black pepper. Taste: yeasty, with graham crackery sweetness, light clove, marmalade and light honey, with just a hint of funk. Finish: a bit of champagne dryness, with just a hint of astringency under a lingering, lightly spiced sweetness. Notes: Wouldn’t have thought this was a saison, as it lacked much of the traditional horseblanket funk. It did seem like an outstanding Belgian style ale. There was a nice bit of sweetness, but the light, zesty and dry palate, as well as the spicy yeast, kept things very drinkable and refreshing.
