Bottle shared at Sander Stag. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Some light honey, biscuits, dough, lemon peel. Medium sweet flavour with more biscuit, honey, mellow citrus, dough, yeast. Light to medium bodied with massaging carbonation. Nicely balanced finish, more yeast, faint funk, pale bread, a little musty hay. Solid stuff.

Good clarity, light blonde and has a moderately well-retained white head atop.
Soft esters, honey and other pale malt notes all are quite gentle/graceful on the nose. Light hops are grassy, lightly herbal and feel very at home here. Again, so nice to not have a "we made a belgian golden with a twist!" beer (twist being out-of-place American hops). Flowers, a touch of perfume from the yeast and more dough and bread-like maltiness on the finish, with no alcohol or flaws noted.
Soft, supple malt texture with light honey, graham cracker and other pale grain notes joined by soft, floral and lightly spicy hop notes towards the finish. Very reserved yeast notes provide yellow fruit notes (light apricot, light orange, no peach and very little banana) and little/no acidity. Just a touch of white pepper-like phenols and no alcohol or flaws. Very well-done beer. It’s malty but still well-attenuated with no messy/sloppy Americanized phenols/esters and no astringent or sourdough-like malt character. Like River North Quandary, perhaps not the most complex beer in the world, but that’s fine with me if it means a cleaner, more reserved, less messy beer.
From the 500 ml. bottle, bottled in February 2015. Slightly hazy yellow-olive with a small and quick fizzy white head. The aroma is toasted bread, toasted biscuit, pepper, spice, and grass. Light yet creamy body. Toasted sweetness in the flavor top start with a clean, crisp mildly hopped finish that lingers dryly but only for a moment. Easy to drink. Enjoyable.
