COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Recently named “3rd Best Craft Beer in the Hudson Valley” by TAP NY, Dirty Blonde Ale is an all-American style wheat beer with a twist. Brewing this beer with American ale yeast keeps it light and refreshing. An enormous Cascade and Centennial dry hop gives this beer a strong grapefruit aroma and a pleasant citrusy flavor making it Adirondack Brewery’s Official Summer Beer.

Dirty Blonde is an ode to the many summer romances that have taken place on the shores of Lake George since the early 1800’s.

Bork (381) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Light and quite refreshing but overly tart and ultimately quite watery. More pleasing to the nose than the palate.

joelfaber (36) - Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2014

Onslow (1233) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Cloudy yellow brew with one finger of dense head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus, fruit. Taste is crisp green fruit at the start transitioning to mild citrus and tart fruit at the end. Crisp and clean, different and refreshing. Light palate compliments the taste. I think this would be a fine summer wheat ale (too bad I stumbled onto it in November!)
