Our American blonde ale is a soft and delicate ale brewed with pilsner malt and jasmine flower. The addition of jasmine adds a floral and slightly fruity layer. Single speed pours a crisp golden hue with floral undertones. Whatís your speed? Ours is a Single Speed.

22 oz bottle into a tulip. Nice golden color with a rich texture and a soapy head. Bland aroma, which led to a surprise as the jasmine notes emerged at the end of the tasting. Well crafted, enjoyable summer beer, but I wouldn't go out if my way for it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a bright gold with a thin white head. Aroma is floral and jasmine, light bread malts. Flavor is jasmine, nectar, and some floral notes, with sweet bread taking up more character. Has a light, crisp mouthfeel. Not bad.

On tap. Hazy yellow pour with a minimal head. Very sulfury. Canít even identify this as a Belgian. So much sulfur and DMS. Drinkable.

Can. Golden yellow color with an average white head. Breast aroma with hint of spice and flowers. The latter elements a bit more pronounced in the finish. Crisp and mostly dry. Ok

seymour (1828) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Tasted on tap at the brewpub as part of a sampler flight. Iíve seen this around town, and was glad to try it. I guess the high price and flowery deScription prepared me for more, but it just seemed a fairly bland golden ale. Grainy malt, grassy but somewhat harsh hops balance. Only okay.

Thanks to iNBe. Started a little sweet but sort of balanced out later, floral, soft, fruity, great big fluffy head. Not bad. Serving: Bottle

This is a pretty decent blond but Iím not sure I like the element the jasmine adds. Itís your typical craft beer hazed, blond w/ a small head. Itís a bit sweet but not cloying w/ and has a nice cereal sort of graininess to it. The jasmine--and I only think itís the jasmine--adds a bit of a floral note (of course) but I feel like itís also bringing a green vegetable taste to the table and that is not quite great. I think Iíd like this better w/o it but who knows for sure. Either way, I give it credit for be flavorful and drinkable which is 90% of what I want out of this style.
