750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/6/2014. Pours slightly cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger foamy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of pear, apple, lemon, orange peel, banana, honey, bread, clove, pepper, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of fruity/spicy ester notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of pear, apple, lemon, orange peel, bread, honey, banana, clove, pepper, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, citrus, bread, honey, clove, pepper, light banana, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Belgian blond ale. All around nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy ester flavors with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. No complaints at all really; a very enjoyable offering.

Very, very sweet ale, aroma and taste of honey. Bland appearance, no head, no bubbles...bad bottle? Perhaps. If I can get another sample, I’ll re-rate this one.

Niet veel bijzonders dit blond biertje. Prima smaak, maar geeft weinig mond gevoel. Te makkelijk

Apr 2012 - Draught at Pigs Ear Richmond - OK. Didn’t take a note. Oct 2012 - draught again, Wetherspoons off Fleet St. Banana sweetness, nice and drinkable, similar flavours to a decent wheat beer. Slight bitterness. Enjoyed it more than the first time, and would give it another go.
