3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
7 oz. pour at First Draft. This is a light yellow with active carbonation and a white head. Seems like a pretty straight forward Belgian ale. Esters are nice, giving it a floral, spicy, and papery aroma. The body is medium with a dry finish. Pleasant fruity yeast comes through in the flavor with a relatively assertive hop presence. The malt bill seems pretty simple, adding some bready sweetness.

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.
