Today was out of control and I am very, very happy to have a fun dinner on the books for tonight. That being said, I probably should have walked out the door about seven minutes ago. Oops.
I'm assuming the date on the bottle (10/13/13) is a best by date because this beer is quite delicious. It smells of Belgian candi sugar and fruit. It had a thin mouthfeel but was very flavorful. The ABV is listed at 6.5% but after drinking it, I would have guessed it to be much higher. The flavor is malt and fruit with a strong backbone of hop flavor. There are notes of green apple. It's quite hoppy for a blond ale but it works.
