COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In this bottle is Belgian brewery know-how dating back to 1867 - the year the recipe was created. It’s a crisp, golden ale brewed using only water, malted barley, hops, and yeast. The dry-hopping procedure, in which uncooked hop heads are added after the brewing process, gives this beer its unique floral aroma and taste.

Clear gold pour nil head. Smells slightly yeasty mostly like barley and pale lager hops. Tastes like a beany pale lager. Overhopped, watery, and barely drinkable.

Faint Belgian yeast aroma. Body is lager strains with a floral yeast that is a bit off. Finish is a little harsh.

Quite light and lager-like, though hints of Belgian come through. Earthy, trashy, watery. A sweet malt underneath.

Suttree (6075) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2015
yellow, fizzy, with a very loose white head. Smells very toasty and yeasty. Taste is sweet, surprisingly boozy for 6%, plus some unpleasant sourness. Some grassy hops in the finish. All in all, pretty much a mess.

From 12oz bottle, purchased at Trader Joe’s, around $6-7 for 6 pack, poured into Belgian glass

Aroma: sweet, spices,

Appearance: golden, crystal clear, white head, good lacing

Taste: light sweet, medium bitter

Palate: light body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, lingering bitter finish

Overall: Very crisp with some hops. Very nice initial aroma which fades after a minute or two. Taste is somewhat spicy. Very clear - crystal clear body. Overall, not a bad beer. Easy drinking, highly digestible. A tad bitter than I expected for Belgian Blonde, but not overly so.

1/30/2015. From bottle. Golden with a white head. Grain and hay aromas. Buttery texture with dried spice flavors. Pretty bland.

Tried a sample at my local TJ’s. Pretty decent for a TJ beer. Aroma is bready and a bit hoppy. Color is yellow-orange with a white head. High carbonation. Taste is lemony, slightly - very slightly - yeasty, some malt sweetness and a nice hop background. Not bad really. I would have bought 2 or 3 bottles if they’d had any in stock, but the tasters bought them clean out.

Bottle: Clear, deep gold with a quick white head. Mild yeast, pear, floral aroma. Taste is delicate pear, yellow apple..soft white fruits, light malt. Crisp, sweet. Extremely pleasant little beer.
