12 oz. can from TheHOFF43 - thanks again, Hoff! Pours a barely cloudy gold with a small white head that settles into a ring and thin film while leaving a few stray ropes of lace in the glass. Light Belgian influence here, offering some sweet and fruity esters, along with bready, sweet cereal, and pale malts, straw, and a bit of banana. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Not bad, but nothing noteworthy about it.

Pretty chill beer. Crisp. Easy to drink. Nice Belgian character without being overbearing. After drinking one, I wanted something with more hops, but thats what I get, I suppose for getting a beer called a blonde.
