Wonderful marriage of blonde and hoppiness. Mild hop aromas, rich nose of malt. Golden blond with lots of off-white head. Just magnificient drinkability, the hot weather and the food made the moment perfect. Above average mouthfeel.

sweet orange mangoey pineapple belgian yeast aroma with some slight spice notes in there as well, definately the best smelling belgian ale I have had in a long timeslight citrusy hop notes as well sits at a slightly hazy yellow first taste is slightly farmhouse like with some notes of sourness and finishes with a slight hop bitterness that is refreshing and adds an amazing touch to the complexity of this beer im getting a slight cheese like taste as well in there with some slight orange/spice notes in there as well a light soap like taste that I associate with saisons, that is not at all comparable to the taste you get from something like a keystone light, yet adds a little touch to the taste, sits with a small white head, honestly this is a highly complex beer that should be cherished after proper understanding of the different styles of belgian beer killer beer a heavier saison with some more hop notes then saisons as well, truely a treat to have
