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.

Bleh. This tastes a little skunky to me - like something has gone bad in the beer. It almost tastes like a lager mixed with a Belgian.

emacgee (4025) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Pours a clean soft straw yellow with one finger of white head. Nose is spicy and sweet, notes of bubblegum. Lots of phenolics and yeasty notes. Very dry and light bodied with a spicy/prickly hop character. Light showing of alcohol. Raw fruit and yeast in the flavor with a slightly sweet finish.

TomTron (376) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head that sticks around. Aromas of belgian yeast and grass. Taste is dominated with yeast and some funky herbs and not much else. Watery mouthfeel and the more I drink the more it tastes like stale crackers. Not a very good offering.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Bottle. Light hazy orange with small to no white head. Nose is dms, rotten veggies, ew. Flavor similar, very bad. Don’t want to attempt to drink more.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottles from Pat’s and RR Street. Pours hazy gold with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is tart, lactic, hopcitric. Tastes of bready pale malt, hopcitrus, and some finishing tartness. Mediocre.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2012 Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 5/7/12

Aroma: The nose is mostly Beligan yeast and spice, with some grains, malts, and light fruit
Appearance: It pours a bright golden color with a thick, fluffy white head and fairly heavy lacing
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet, malty and yeasty, with a good amount of spice on the later palate
Palate: The body is light-medium, it is fairly creamy, with a soft-to-average carbonation, and a slightly dry finish
Overall Impression: Randomly - This guy, who lives in NJ, and purchased these beers in Arkansas, is the only ones who’s rated 100% of BottleTree’s beers (all 2 of them). Anyway, on to non-completely random and irrelevant information. This one was pretty solid. After all that rambling, I don’t have too much more to add then that.

May have been the location... May have been the food, but this was better than expected. Enjoyed a bottle at the Backyard Restaurant in Hilton Head, to go with the best shrimp & grits I’ve ever had. Gold color with nice carbonation. Taste was unique blend of flavors, a light sweet (almost wheat-like) malt and a very subtle hint of floral hops with a soft bitterness that balanced the whole thing very nicely. Not typically a Belgian fan, but this one was well worth the trip. I wish I could find it back home in Maryland. Very drinkable and flavorful as it warmed, too. This is easily one of those I could keep for regular drinking.

PorterPounder (5547) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Murky light golden appearance, soft silky white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Bubblegum and clove in the aroma. Flavor is full-bodied and chewy. Pick up some candied sugar notes, a bit of lemony citrus, some saffron-like spiciness. Nice spritz to the mouthfeel, Overall, very solid.

Average. The nose is clean malt with mild clove like Belgian notes. The beer is a hazy orange with a nice fluffy white head. The taste is clean malt with the typical Belgian notes. The beer is medium and very clean.
