Draft sample. Poured clear pale color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate honey, citrus and spice aroma.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Received in a 4 oz. tasting glass. This is a Belgian blond brewed with honey and pineapple sage.
3.5 A: Nearly clear yellow orange color. Came without a head.
4.0 S: Spicy and herbal nose. Clove from the yeast, plenty of sage, and plenty of honey as well. A little dry, but overall quite nice.
2.5 T: Really herbal and grassy. Sage dominates. The spice isn’t as potent in the taste. The herbalness would be fine if there was a more balancing sweetness, but this is awfully dry. Honey and hay round things off.
3.5 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation with a nice spritziness. Could be smoother if it was more balanced.
3.0 D: Decent beer, but has some faults that need to be addressed.
Serving type: on-tap

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured on draft at Jackie-O’s. Appearance is a pale, hazy gold with a nice white head of foam and good retention. The aroma has tropical fruit sweetness with the herbal qualities of sage coming through while allowing the honey to mesh everything together. I can’t really pick up on any pineapple, but the guy next to me said he could. Maybe he’s full of shit. I don’t know. Taste is sweet and herbal, just like the aroma. Another very nice beer. Could drink it all day long.
