3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My buddy Jeremy met me at Wicked Weed for a few beers after a long run one Friday afternoon. Jeremy likes Budweiser. I suggested this beer. He liked it. I liked it. Light and flavorful if unassuming. Belgian beer for believers in Bud.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of pale grain, yeast, mild fruits, mild hops. The taste is herbal hops, pale malts, stone fruits. Medium bodied, smooth.

The description said the spelt added a creaminess to the mouthfeel. I think they were right. Otherwise, this is a typical Belgian blonde ale on the better side of the spectrum.
