3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml - pours deep gold with plenty of white head. Nose is floral and basement-y. Flavor adds caramel and the typical Unibroue yeast aftertaste. Slightly spicy, but still a blonde ale. Sweet and mildly bitter. the best I could to snub all of those drinking in honor of Cinco de Mayo. Pour la gloire de la patrie.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice bright golden amber color. Pretty clear, but I can see a lot of floaties in the bottle. Big off-white head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma is full of sweet pale grain flavor. Lots of fruit. Pears, apples, grapes, apricots, dates. Mild herbal, grassy hops. A faint medicinal note. Just tons of pilsner malt favor. Taste is similar. It starts sweet with that fresh, pale malt flavor but finishes dry with some funk and mild hop bitterness. More light fruitiness, big pear note particularly. Some musty apple/grape skin flavor and feel. Feel is light but full. There’s some prickly carbonation but it’s generally quite smooth due to the full body. Very easy to drink. Goes well with some soft goat cheese. Fun to find a nice example of the style.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared at beers of the world. Aroma of more skunky pilsner. Biscuit and fried eggs. Pours blonde with a very large head. Taste is very light with yeasty pilsner notes and a champagne quality. Overall very offensive skunk to this one. I am not a fan.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Straw, sunset hues with decent head and lacing.
S: Nice floral notes, smells similar to a saison, slight farm aroma.
T: Interesting beer. After some contemplation, I definitely get a flavor similar to tea or tea bags. Floral notes come out nicely. This beer is decent, but lacks any memorable or distinguishing characteristics other than perhaps tea bags) that would cause me to want it again.
M: Smooth and easy to drink, moderately thin bodied.
D: Easy to drink, though after finishing my glass, I was ready for something a bit more interesting.
Revisited this recently. Bottle was skunked. Going to stick with the original review score, but I will never understand why breweries use green bottles.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle courtesy of Huhzubendah. Served in a taster glass. Pours a clear golden color with a nice white head. The nose starts out with some grain and a bit of yeast, but is then somewhat overtaken by skunked hops. Very unfortunate. Flavor is similarly skunked, but to an even greater level. Light-medium body and high carbonation. Ugh, another victim of the green bottle.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thick head from strong carbonation. Clear hay colored gold. Terrific bready fragrant nose with some stone fruits. Taste is crisp clean and well balanced with just a little sweetness. Light mouthfeel and lively from carbonation. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml corked bottle pours a hazy pale golden color with a big fluffy white head that lasts a while and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is bready malts with some light fruits and yeast and a trace of hops. Taste is bready malt sweetness with some light fruits and a mild hop bitterness. Medium body and lively carbonation appease the palate nicely. Overall, this is a very nice blonde ale.
