750 ml bottle shared by Pete- thanks again, buddy. This wound up being the last beer we ever shared together. Pours a somewhat cloudy light gold color with a finger of white head. Notes of bready and doughy malts, straw, subtle spices and herbs, grass, pear, and light citrus. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a doughy mouthfeel. Yeast-forward. Solid, if unremarkable, Belgian ale that I’ll always remember anyway.

750 ml bottle, 9C. Very nice looking bottle says at a month past cellar release it will be well fresh and fruity, but if I wait 18 months it will be totally complex and aromatic - handy info if true. Gold with a white head. Doughy aroma with oranges, hay, toast, a little cheese, pears, pepper. Sweet hay, light sugar, pears, oranges, a little spice, doughy yeast. Some lingering herbal notes.A very yeasty blond. Shruggarific.

Malty, a general taste of cakes, toffee banoffee pie, niceness. This was a real shocker was not expecting this to be that good, kind of slutty

Nose is Belgian yeast, strawberry, peach, grass. Taste is honey, caramel, hay, grass, grains leading to plum, herbs and a little pepper in the too short finish. Mouthfeel is slick. It’s a perfectly acceptable Belgian blond, but hard to get excited about and there are many more better examples.
