COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Groundswell is our Blond ale brewed in the Belgian style. We brew her with 4 different varieties of malt which results in a golden color and smooth mouth-feel. Subtle yet complex flavor components include pilsner malt sweetness, fruity yeast esters and citrus notes from the addition of Indian coriander.

malrubius (2482) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Can from Maine. Golden orange clear with no head whatsoever and no lace in a perfectly clean Chimay glass. Crackery malt fruity peach and melon and pepper aroma. Mild honey peach grassy crackery malt with medium spicy pepper bitterness that would have cut the sweetness with a little more lively carbonation. The flavors are great but the texture is terrible.

AirForceHops (5860) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Draft at Sunset Grill & Tap. Cloudy gold, thin lasting head. Not much for the aroma, very mild yeast and a touch of fruit. Nothing off with the flavor but it simply just not much here: hay, dusty yeast and very light black pepper or zesty yeast hints. Mouthfeel is soft. Pretty simple.
