COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique Blonde Ale is a blend of four malted grains, noble hops finished off with that great Belgian yeast. The result is a well balanced aroma and taste ideally suited to complement just about any gourmet dish or dessert.

Yellow pour with a large white head. The aroma is full of grass with some orange citrus notes. The flavor is similar. In addition to the biscuit malt I get some grass and orange. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 Had at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. This is a re-rate from having had it a couple years ago. Pours a slightly hazy orangeish yellow. Some grapefruit and citrus on the nose. Yeasty. Decent beer.

Westmeister (2093) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Draft. Pours clear golden with creamy caking white head. Smell is grains and light esters, but clove and gum. Taste is well weird. On a bad way. Nose was pleasant but didn’t translate. Some butter and cream creep in with creamed corn and minor eatery notes.

12oz bottle 7/20/13 (Judicious Spirits-Mountain Home AR)-36° in Hurricane Glass-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grass, yeast, grains, and slight hops. Taste of yeast, grains, hay, hops, and citrus. This light to medium bodied is well balanced and IMO a nice brew.

Pailhead (5684) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of honey, apple, light citrus, and a hint of clove. It pours a transparent gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. There is minimal lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with honey, Belgian yeast, light citrus, and fruit. The finish has light apple along with some hints of clove. It’s light -medium bodied with moderate-lively carbonation. At times, the carbonation can be a bit prickly. Overall, a pretty average Belgian Ale.

Smells of banana with other hops. Head clings well to side, but is light. It is a clear pale yellow. Taste various hops with a hint of banana. Not bad, but not great either.

rumproasts (4149) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2013
bottle. Golden with small head. Quite a bit of spice, seems more like a wit than a blonde. Still, quite tasty.

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2013
From bottle. Huge white head on pouring. Light mild sweetness, not quite corn or vegetal, but not favorable. Light fruity hop component and carbonic gaseousness. Clear golden with visible carbonation and hug white rocky-foamy lacing head. Medium body with vigorous carbonation. Starts sweet with pilsner malt, honey, and a hint of corn. Mild alcohol sweetness. Medium carbonic acidity with light bitter hop finish. Some bitter chalky after and lingering sweetness. Reminds me of certain European supermarket beers or a European strong lager in many ways.
