Some earthy hops, light bitterness, lemon zest.

It pours golden with a white head. There is some lacing that is produce. It has aromas of biscuit, fruit, spice, and orange. There is a sweet initial taste highlighted by fruit and spice. There are biscuity and hints of nuts with floral hops and some peppery flavors as well. It has a medium feel to it with a moderately bitter dry finish. Overall, it is a somewhat easy drinking ale with front forward fruity elements balance well with malts and spices.

Draft at the Imperial. Good Belgian yeast, a little more subtle so that is nice. Wheat and banana flavors. Some spice. Solid to style.

33 cl. bottled 03.28.2016 indicates 6.5% abv. pours mostly clear and golden with a thin film of foam. Nose is banana bread with toasted walnut, clove and a bit of funk. Tastes the same plus some spicy dried grass and wood in the finish. Light-medium body has a nice balance and too much carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Table and Vine. Slightly hazy gold with ring head. Spicy clovey aroma with light lemon pastry and wet grass. Tropical fruit lemon with a touch honey sweetness spicy clovey lemon drop long bitterness. Medium body lacks soft mouthfeel. Not something I would use to introduce newbies, but a pretty solid and very spicy Belgian-style blonde.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2016 Bottled on 3/28/16. Clear golden. Fluffy white head fragments but persists as it subsides. Pleasant nose of baguette, gum, pepper, lemon, hay, flowers/nectar, and a hint of sulfur. Softly prickly carbonation. Lush malt provides a pillowy foundation as peppery hops converge with assertive gum notes to lend a drying effect. Commendably bright and succulent hop punch combines with a hushed tartness to aid in balance, as soothing oils continue to wash over the palate and induce saliva. Balanced and mostly clean finish reveals ongoing floral hops and chewy, multidimensional pils-derived hay notes. A raspy huskiness does sneak in alongside a light saccharine note to mar the aftertaste. A surprisingly traditional example which thankfully contains not a trace of any novel New World embellishments. The malt has been given proper attention - unlike many Americanized Belgian goldens - as it provides some nice textures (aside from the very subtle coarseness), and there is plenty of finesse here to keep me returning for sniffs and large gulps. Of course I’d love to see the alcohol dialed down a point or two (my bottle states 6.5%, FWIW) and a drier, more bitter finish. But overall, not too shabby.
