arminjewell (6158) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Pour on tap at the Denver Summer Brew Fest, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma has notes of white wine, sweet grapes, some weird lemony tartness with a touch of vanilla, some weird husky grainy notes as well. Taste is very sweet biscuit, lemon, wine and grape notes, some odd grainy notes, finishing fairly sweet.

Bomber. Pours a clear yellow with small white head. The aroma is wheat and yeast. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet fruit and dry finish. A decent Blond from Blue Moon.

Chudwick (2094) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUL 18, 2012
750ml bottle (2012) - pours like a lager with slight longer lasting white head and thin lacing. Nose is cardboard, vinous (white wine), and oaky. flavor adds caramel. Taste is quite sweet. Medium body with sticky mouthfeel. I would compare this to watered-down muscat wine. If this really is a blong/gold ale, this might be my favorite from a style I thought I swore off.

The beer pours a very clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat notes, with a lot of white wine notes and a hint of pepper. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of chardonnay notes in the flavor - mainly made up of grapes, apples and a hint of cream. I also get some nice wheat notes. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Somewhat surprisingly, I actually really liked this beer. Definitely the best Blue Moon beer I have tried.

Not bad, the white grapes are very bright next to the typical Belgian dblon flavors. I actually liked this more than I thought I would, but think increased yeast character would push this beer up a few notches.

mar (4822) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Pale gold with a white head. Nose is dried fruits, grapes, florals, and bubble gum? Easy on the palate, heavy grape with dried fruits, yeast, and a bland finish.

bhensonb (10934) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Capped 750 as 2012 Vintage Blonde Ale from the Folsom BevMo. Pours gld with a fizzy/creamy white head. Looks more like sparkling wine than BudLight. It’s in a Stella glass with the pricklies so the tiny bubbles keep rising. Aroma is vinous - suggesting white grapes - better than Thompson seedless, but mayhap more semillon than chardonnay. Ok. The grape flavor is pretty chardonnay. It seems a bit wheaty, but - ok the subtext says wheat. Drinks pretty nice. Interesting flavor.

Pours light gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving no lacing. Sour grape aromas. Sweet Chardonnay front to back. Medium length sweet oak finish.

Pours a very clear yellow color with a huge white head. Smells of wheat and some yeast. Slight grape flavors with some carbonation. Little bit of wine. Decent.
