ClarkVV (4084) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Draught and bottled samples at Sunset Grill, Summer 2008.
It’s stuff like this that gives blonde ales a bad name. Dirty, not in the sense that the brewers were looking for, but in the sense of unclean, with glaring brewing flaws (diacetyl, metal, a dirty yeast blandness...) and almost no malt character. Tastes like you’re chewing on a handful of dirt and wheat. Some light citrus seems out of place on the end and the beer just tastes stale, cardboard-like and nothing remotely refreshing-like. Extremely poor aroma strength, maybe a touch of vanillin and old, crusty bread. Watery mouthfeel, though somewhat ameliorated by the wheat in the grist. Horribly boring yeast lacking any character.

onceblind (5232) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2015
Hazy green with a thin foamy white cap. Nose smells a bit musty and dirty with some bitter orange peel and stale wheat malts. Clean yet bright and also somehow chewy nose with pale wheat malt doughiness combined with a bright orange zest. A little doughy and wheaty on a semisweet finish with a little lingering orange juice note. Not awful, but certainly not remarkable.

hazy yellow, almost no head. Aroma is very sweet, melons, candy, kiwi and some raisins a little yeasty with wheat and citrus. Nice taste. The wheat body is crisp. lots of orange, some citrus, table sugar sweet finish.

superspak (3236) - Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled in 9/2014. Pours lightly hazy bright golden color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, coriander, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, straw, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, spice, and earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, coriander, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, straw, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, coriander, wheat, cracker, bread, straw, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good balance and robustness of pale malt, spice, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very solid spiced pale wheat ale style. All around good balance and robustness of pale malt, spice, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Pours dirty gold with the faintest haze ever and a barely there head. Aroma is inoffensive but faint. Taste is better but muddled.

travita (4335) - Frisco, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. The look is clear, white head, and golden in color. The smell is dirty, pickles, malt, odd, and off. The taste is wheat, fruit, blah, ok.
