Pours hazy gold with fat fine-foamed white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast and mild fruit esters. Just a touch of clove spice. Taste brings plenty of balance with grainy malts, yeasty, some sweet ester, lemon and again clove. Sweeter notes are upfront with a mild bitterness to close. A bit different from the standard blonde - not a surprise for WW. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours a medium, well retained, off white head with moderate lacing, over a slightly hazy gold (SRM 5) body......nose is multiple phenols with clove, ginger tones, light eater with pear, apple, hints of citrus, mild malts, light noble hop spice, balance to the yeast.......taste is dry throughout, light cracker, hints of bread, from the malts, clove, ginger, lemon, apricot, light hop spice, finishing with mild bitterness......mouth feel, medium light body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is a very complex, estery, highly phenolic beer which shows the effects of a Belgian yeast. BJCP 8/3/16/4/7

Pours a hazy golden yellow from the can with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of nice mild Belgian esters, light fruit and spice. Taste follows, clean and delicious. Well done.

Draft at Ale House Amesbury, MA. Hazy golden color, full lasting head retention. Aroma shows me yeast, toasted biscuits, and mild citrus. The flavor is good Belgian yeast and pale grain backbone. Mild clove.

Good medium body with a nice mouthfeel. Has a elegant character to it. Flavor are mild and nuanced.

Nice and slightly hazy golden coloured body with a honey glow and a thinnish, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of crisp light malt and wheats with a pungent yeast strain, some lemons and a bit of floral aand grassy notes throughout. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a pungent yeast kick at first, some subdued grainy and herbal notes and a touch of grass and dry saison-y flavours with a crisp yeast complexity and some. Very subtle sugars from fruit and honey. Aftertaste is rich, but very dry - there are a lot of grassy and herbal flavours and a bit of a yeast kick that shows some of the Belgian complexities of bananas, cloves, grain and a touch of bubblegum. Overall, a complex and relatively elegant beer, but little in the way of inventiveness - just a well-executed beer for the style that has a great profile and even better complexity - about all you can ask for as a Belgian pale! I sampled this sixteen ounce bottle on draught at Whole Foods in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virigniaa on 23-February-2017 for US$5,00 sampled at the end of my driveway.
