This ale is made in the Belgian tradition with Noble hops and our Belgian yeast giving this blonde golden colored ale a wonderfully complex spicy clove like aroma and subtle dried apricot, and biscuit like flavor. This beer is a wonderful entry level Belgian beer for anyone unsure of Belgian styles.

Growler from WW. Pours a bright golden with a lovely white head and nice lacing. Nose of Noble hops but also cloves, Belgian yeast, some grass and earthy notes. Taste is a bit too earthy and spicy. Wanted a bit more of the hops. Worked well after 9 holes this afternoon though.

Hazy light golden with a thin ring of white foam, giving a nice Belgian blonde aroma of funky biscuit, light fruit, pear, light herbal hops and a little earthy funk. Bright chewy blonde flavor that’s a little earthy and Belgo blonde estery, a touch funky, a kiss of bubblegum, a little Belgo graininess and a mild estery finish.

zoucrew102 (1331) - - AUG 19, 2016
Bottle. Spicy Belgian yeast aroma with light fruity esters and clove. Pours cloudy golden colored with a thin white head that has little retention and good lacing. Starts with fruity esters and some clove spice. Finishes dry with spicy Belgian yeast notes. Nice blonde with a Belgian twist.

thegreenrooster (3967) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Pour is a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma is very much like a saison. Lot of yeast ester with some grainy malt and peach. Flavor is more of a honey with some melon and some white sugar sweetness towards the end. This has a very bitter finish for some reason. Pretty standard golden ale. My bottle said 6.5%

Cybercat (5045) - Georgia, USA - JUL 31, 2016
Pours clear golden with a nice porcelain head. Aroma presents malty, orange, yeasty and clove tones. Flavor echoes the aroma nicely, but with more fruity character. Mouthfeel delivers good body and lively fizz. You may be right, I may be crazy about craft beer - but it just may be a Lunatic Blonde you’re looking for.

Pale yellow body with a white collar. Aromas of bread, lemon, light floral notes. Some earthy hops, light bitterness, lemon zest. Medium-light body with high drinkability. A solid beer I would have again.

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.
