Brownish amber color... nice two finger head. Aromas and flavors are malty nutty and a touch caramel sweetness. Hay, graham cracker all balanced out by slight touches of hoppy bitterness .

On tap at Southern New Hampshire Brewers Fest. Enjoyed in a 2 ounce glass. Light gold appearance, no head. Smell is very effervescent. Belgian yeast sort of smell, saaz hops, centennial hops. Up front wheat and burnt malts. Some melted candies like butterscotch. Pecans. It’s sort of nutty and toffee like. Light body.

Pours a darker copper color. Aroma is full of malts and hops. Honestly it doesn’t really have anything special that sticks out, well maybe the stale and moldy basement aromas that also come out. Flavor is pretty much the same....malts, hops and mildew basement. Just very unpleasant. This could possibly be in the top 10 worst beers ever for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

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.

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...
