Wow! This beer is so delicious. It’s bone dry and very floral. I had it on tap at the tasting room. They told me it was all European hops (it smells like Saaz). The Harlot has a wonderful Belgian-like flavor ad aroma but is happier and drier than almost all other Belgians I’ve had! I dinged the score because I wish the abv were lower since this could potentially be incredibly sessionable. Anyway, great stuff!

My Bottom Line:
Interweaving bubblegum, flowers, honey and citrus move towards a minty, herbal hop finish in this svelte and quenching Belgian-style Blond.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam covers the translucent golden. Beautiful even from the growler, eh?
-The mouthfeel is fluffy, airy and light.
-This is as easy drinking as you can imagine.
-At times, this feels like Dupont’s little expat cousin.

On tap at the brewery as well as a growler. Pours with a crystal clear golden yellow hued body with a lasting white head that leaves good lace. Aromas are very hoppy, herbal and spicy, grassy. Pretty clean yeast wise, low phenol and even less ester (some dried fruit). Low malt character. Overall pretty clean, a touch peppery, nearly pils like. Flavors are dry, earthy, and crisp. Medium hops (grassy, herbal). Nicely dry and quaffable, low bready malt character, some mineral notes. Clean yeast wise with some peppery phenol. Very drinkable, lively bubbles, crisp with a light body. Excellent beer.

The pour is clear pale yellow with a big white head. The nose is nice Belgian candy sugar, ginger, cloves, bready pastry and light honey. The taste is medium to low sweet with low bitter again with these guys, great balance. The texture is soft and creamy, the body is light and the finish is huge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Light golden pour with a slick of white foam and steady, semi-aggressive carbonation. Aroma is minimal hops and a pleasant yeast character with slight clove followed by a clean malt profile. Taste is soft clove, light yeast esters, minimal banana, pepper, and complimentary hop bitterness through the finish. Clean mouthfeel going from smooth to crisp. Understated beer but well crafted and quite enjoyable.

GABF 2012, October 12, Friday. Very Belgian in character. Dry with lots of hops and Belgian yeast, but lower alcohol, making me think of Orval or a dry saison. A great beer.

Tap. Pours clear pale golden, medium creamy white head, great lacing. Aroma is grass, pepper, yeast. Flavor is the same, but of lemongrass, honey, a bit herbal, yeast, green pepper corns. Light sweet, little bitterness. Light body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice.

Really light Belgian with light fruit, pepper/earthy hops, light bready yeast. This is just a really light crisp easy drinking Belgian on a hot day. Refreshingly dry, not sweet and a great Belgian extra.

Clear medium yellow pour, with a fluffy white head. A very nice, light, dry Belgian ale. Bread, peppery, grain, yeast, herbal bitterness, dry banana, and grass. Very drinkable and dry, nice.

On tap in San Diego (CA)
This Belgian ale had a very distinct West Coast feel. Unlike the dry texture of those in Europe this one hides a delayed bitterness. Just thinking about it again makes my mouth water.

Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated golden base shimmers with life. Light honey, cereal grains, candy sugar, and a fresh airy feel are open and fit in well with the nice weather. This does not have much depth but what is present works to maximum effect.

Flavor / Palate - Golden crisp, honey, and cotton candy rise from the tongue to fill the mouth with freshness. The fabric softener finish tickles the throat. If it were a bit lower ABV then this would make a great session beer. As it is two or three pints would be a great way to spend an evening.
