Golden, pale orange pour. Thick creamy head. Aroma is light spicy hops with a creamy, fruity depth. Strong apricot. Promises to be very refreshing. Light apricot flavor hits the tongue first, with the signature earthy dryness that comes with the fruity sweetness. Nice thick creamy mouthfeel. Light enough to be a serious summer quaffer, but with a real nice creamy palate preventing it from getting watery. Fruit slips into light spice and bitterness. Very mild bitterness mostly disappears in the finish, but not in a phantom kind of way. It just washes out clean. Not wildly complex, but just right for the style. I really think this would make a better summer beer than most wheat ales. Reminds me a bit of Oberon in that it’s got body and flavor, but is totally clean and drinkable.

Can. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a small, lasting, foamy white head. Nose is straw, grass, light dry citrus notes. Palate is crisp, clean, refreshing. Flavors of grass and lemon with a light bitter bite.

12oz can. Pours a cloudy golden with a white head. OK but nothing great. Comes off very thin with a slight metallic taste. Meh

Miksu (4830) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2011. Slightly hazy deep golden color. Flowery aroma with meadowsweet and tangerine. More tangerines and oranges in the flavor with nutty maltiness. Dryish, very drinkable. The palate feels a bit flat. Nice flowery scent in this ale.

Thanks to boblorb for sharing this one. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some malt, bitter orange, and some floral hops. Flavor is similar with light malt, orange, bitter citrus, and some floral hops. Light in body and ok for a session beer.

not sure why this has been categorized as a blonde, its definitely a pale ale, light in color, light in flavor, good for a session ale, not enough body for anything really interesting.

VTHopHead (1503) - Barre, Vermont, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Sampled at The Great Lost Bear - Pours a golden amber with a small white head that fades to almost nothing. Aroma is malty with a hint of citrus hops. Flavor pretty much follows along with a slightly sweet taste. Mild lingering bitterness. OK...

Pours gold into a Sam glass. White head recedes to skim surface leaving scant spiders. Sour toast aromas. Soft with sweet caramel upfront turning sour in the medium length finish.

GBBF. Cask. Light haze on this gold beer. Light dry palate. A little pale malt. Mild citrus. Dry finish. A bit meh! And a bit dry!
