MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Interweaving bubblegum, flowers, honey and citrus move towards a minty, herbal hop finish in this svelte and quenching Belgian-style Blond.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam covers the translucent golden. Beautiful even from the growler, eh?
-The mouthfeel is fluffy, airy and light.
-This is as easy drinking as you can imagine.
-At times, this feels like Duponts little expat cousin.

Growler.

Pour on tap, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, biscuit, some white fruit into a touch of grain, slight earthy notes with some spicy notes as well. Taste was a mix of orange peel, lemon, hints of yeast into a bit of grain, biscuit, some white fruit, some slight Belgian yeast, finishing spicy, slightly sweet.

Very slightly cloudy light golden hue with a thin foamy white head. Funky dusty aroma thats a little estery toward the banana end of the spectrum, with a light kiss of bitter orange peel. Crisp and dry and Belgian estery flavor thats Saison-esque and banana ish, dry and wheaty finish.

Ibrew2or3 (8557) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Poured up on tap at the brewery where it exhibits a nice clear gold body that supports a thin off white head. The modest aroma offers up kind of punchy notes like a sharp apricot and lime mixture that gets into a nice little malt graininess at the end of the draw. The taste starts with a little bit of grainy malt sweetness and then sort of slightly tart peach and apricot and maybe a little bit of a pear note going on. This finishes with a pleasing sort of grainy maltiness that is in contrast to the brighter, slightly tart fruitiness.

Sampled at GABF 2014 with Andrew, Mel and David. Pours a light golden body wiht white head. Aroma is yeast, spice, banana, clove, hay and wheat. Mouthfeel is medium with bright spice and flavors of banana, clove, sweet fruit and bright yeast. Too much belgian spice in this one, Ill stick to the dank IPAs.

BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 28, 2012
On tap at the brewery as well as a growler. Pours with a crystal clear golden yellow hued body with a lasting white head that leaves good lace. Aromas are very hoppy, herbal and spicy, grassy. Pretty clean yeast wise, low phenol and even less ester (some dried fruit). Low malt character. Overall pretty clean, a touch peppery, nearly pils like. Flavors are dry, earthy, and crisp. Medium hops (grassy, herbal). Nicely dry and quaffable, low bready malt character, some mineral notes. Clean yeast wise with some peppery phenol. Very drinkable, lively bubbles, crisp with a light body. Excellent beer.
