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.

Poured up on tap at the brewery where it exhibits a nice clear gold body that supports a thin off white head. The modest aroma offers up kind of punchy notes like a sharp apricot and lime mixture that gets into a nice little malt graininess at the end of the draw. The taste starts with a little bit of grainy malt sweetness and then sort of slightly tart peach and apricot and maybe a little bit of a pear note going on. This finishes with a pleasing sort of grainy maltiness that is in contrast to the brighter, slightly tart fruitiness.
