St. Sebastiaan "Golden"
Brouwerij Sterkens - Meer, Belgium
Belgian Blonde Ale (ABV 7.7%)

[Suggested Glassware: Trappist Glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a clear light golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that had great retention and superb sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty sweet Belgian yeast with notes of banana, green apple, citrus (lemon), bubblegum and coriander.

The taste was malty and lightly sweet with a touch of apple and a hint of banana early on, with a nice fruity ester creeping in along with a bold yeasty presence and just a bit of spice at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time proceeding the swallow with the fruity yeast taste lingering for a little while, before fading away entirely.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery yet mildly dry texture and a strong lively carbonation.

Overall a light flavorful Belgian Ale with a great drinkability, which could be dangerous considering the somewhat higher ABV...
