12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear golden, thin white head lots of bubble and very decent lacing. Aroma is mostly fruity, some yeast and some clove. Taste is also fruity some spices, malty notes; but it is a bit weak definitely is the Belgian style but tamed. It is drinkable and with a crisp finish, refreshing.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is slight hazy golden yellow with a small white head. The aroma is fruit and grain. The taste matches the nose.

Poured from bottle into tulip. Pours a rich gold color with two finger creamy white head. Leaves a ton of lacing as you drink on the glass. Tastes, smells, and drinks like true-to-style golden ale. Really impressed and enjoying this.

Bottle from Whole Foods Tenley. Hazy golden body with fast-receding head. Nose is floral, of bananas and fruits and citrus. Taste is also fruits, and citrus and spices. Really nice Belgian style - very similar to Leffe Blonde. Very good stuff!

From the Bottle at Burgers and Beer in El Centro. Love a good Belgian ale. This one was an average Belgian ale. Still better and a good lager.

fakebeersnob (325) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Slight yeast and straw. Does now smell like a Belgian strain. Not a good sign. Very light, clear orangish-copper color. Taste has a bit of corn, and yeast..might be a belgian strain, but if so it is very faint. Not as strong as even the usual session Belgian ales. Very watery, For this clear of a beer, not seeing bubbles rise. Besides the brief yeast upfront, and the mouthfeel at the end, would never guess this was a beer - let alone a Belgian style ale. Drinkable. Will not buy again. Might be the worst Belgian ale I have had due to lack of flavor, complexity, and anything that makes this style enjoyable.
