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.

The aroma is dusty, yeasty, lemony, and slightly hoppy with a little bit of malt. The appearance is pale gold with a nice head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall not that impressive but not super bad.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Swingbridge Beer and Wine. It pours a nice light gold color with a small, white head. The nose has bits of cereal and grain with a touch of yeast. The flavor is a bit sweet with notes of spice, yeast, grains of paradise, and a slight pithy bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A little heavy on the tongue. Not bad but not great.

DiarmaidBHK (4155) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle from stem and stein. A belgian ale but just barely. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves a bit of lacing on the side. Not much on the nose. Mouthfeel was a bit oily. Not much on the tongue. Meh.

GTAEgeek (1894) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Sampled from a bottle at the Hopspitality Brewfest. Pours pale yellow with a thin head. The aroma is hay, lemons, and selzer water. The flavor is citrus sweetness. The palate is light, very carbonated, and a little acidic. Overall, this is a weak beer, which tastes closer to a pilsener than any Belgian style ale.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Pale golden color with a fluffy white head. LIttle to no lacing. Strong yeast aroma with bread, hay and some spices. Light carbonation and body, crisp and clean mouthfeel. Some sweet malts and flavors mostly follow fromt he aroma. A hint of pepper and mild citrus hops on the finish. Refreshing, easy drinking summer beer. If you enjoy yeast undertones, you could session this one.

Had this during the 2011 Shenandoah Throwdown, on the last night when it was just Aaron and I. Pours a clear gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Soft sweet grain, toast and light malt and wheat. Sweet and grainy, soft grain. Drinkable and grainy.

Onionkid (376) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Bottle. Aroma is nice, Belgian hints with citrus and malts. The taste is pretty balanced, with an easy Belgian taste...slight lemon taste and a good finish. Enjoyed this beer a good bit, will probably try some more while the weather still suits it! 6.0% alcohol.

Bottle. Light head with decent amount of carbonation. Malty but crisp and not a lot of depth. Some nice yeast qualities - great for outdoors.
