A classic Belgian brew that is widely considered the gold standard of golden ales. It's clean and superbly balanced, presenting a gorgeous, pristine yellow-gold color in the glass. The nose is bright and lively, with forward scents of citrus pith, underripe Bosc pear, barley and just a tinge of green grape. Those notes all carry through to the similarly vibrant palate alongside additional complexities of yeasty spice, earthy hop, white pepper and cracker. The high carbonation is in line with the flavor profile, while the mouthwatering finish leaves you ready for more. It's a deceptively drinkable yet simultaneously elegant and nuanced beer.
