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.

draft at the brewery, a miss for me. Nothing bad about it, just over the top belgian yeast flavors unbalanced this one. Overwhelmed with balances and spices.
