Lips Of Faith Belgian Style Blond Ale

Golden pour with some delightful looking, full, frothy head that leaves some great lace. Good clarity on the pour. Attractive looking beer.
Smells and tastes replicate a light yeast note with a touch of sweetness.
The beer is pretty well balanced and as such it *could* be a potential stepping stone for a non-craft drinker. However, the problem is really the ABV. Even though the alcohol is very well hidden, the beer still creeps up on you a little, and even though the alcohol does not necessarily manifest itself too much in the taste, it still comes through strongly in the effect. There’s a little residual sugar too in a typical Belgian candy way. Strangely the beer still drinks easily with a light touch that does not get syrupy.
I like this beer, but the name, the time of year and the relatively light mouthfeel ALL demand a beer that is easier to drink, and on that note this fails. Anyway, tasty but a beer the ought to be easier to consume.
