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.

Tried at World Beer Fest Raleigh 2011. Aroma of citrus and malts. Flavor of citrus, malts, some wheat and some bittersweet in the finish. Very drinkable.

handsomejn (65) - Arkansas, USA - APR 19, 2011
Pours a clear light golden, with a thin white head that quickly dissapears. Very easy to drink. Very balanced, nice bitterness, a little sweetness, some citrus, a little yeast, a little funk, a little clove, but not at all extreme in any one flavor. This would be a great beer for the transitional drinker. It has a very pleasant long finish. Very easy to drink, very broad pairing possibilities, good warm weather brew.

Aurelius (3903) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Lemony jam aroma with a good jolt of yeast. Good label. Clear, intense yellow beer. Slightl astringent, very lightly candied, nicely bittered. Sweet breakfast cereal flavors on the backend - sugar, faux citrus, a sour twang. A brothy, stock-y mouthfeel and a bitter rind/pith aftertaste. Clean drinking though not a real big beer, it’s not indistinct either. I agree with the commercial description, this would be a good food pairing with a wide variety of dishes. Chan’s Wine World, PCB.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Appearance: Pours a yellow-hued body with excellent clarity and capped with a foaming, white head.

Smell: A scent of honey carefully drizzled over cracker dough and given a fine dusting of ground cloves. Also, lightly fruity notes of peaches and apricots. Very small hint of alcohol.

Taste: Lightly bready, cracker-toned pale malts with a brushing of sweet honey rounded with a hint of puffed grains. Small pinch of piquant spiciness. Light, fleeting traces of fruitiness representing Golden Delicious apples, peaches, and apricot. Faint hoppiness and subsequent bitterness. Drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: It’s a pleasant, easy drinking brew. What else have you got going on, BottleTree?

Ulfada (257) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Pours a clean light straw color, not much aroma. Not much in the way of flavor, taste more like a lager to me. As the macro-breweries say, it is clean crisp and drinkable, but not all together good.

"Belgian" Blonde? I did not get any particular Begian smells or flavors. In fact, my notes indicate a fairly run of the mill blonde ale, nothing fancy, with no flaws or anything like that. So there you go.
