3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy medium yellow,slight head,Ok maybe lower carb than normal.
Aroma is skunky,tart,lemon,grass.I guess I can say, clove as descibed as well.I kind of like it in an obnoxious skunky- blunt way.
Taste is like some wheat beers,with tartness. It has also the clove/mild bannanna/fruit thing also.Grassy,pepper(could just be clove).Tart grassy finish. Some grainyness and mild sweetness.Not bad really, would go better with food maybe,good drinkability with a nice bittering finish has some dry toast that drys the top of your mouth in finish also. Not my favorate style,but something I would get again but not soon for a blond ale. I was thinking this was german malt but guess not.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear and bright yellow gold body with a large frothy white head that left lots of thin lacing. The nose is soft bready malt with a light hoppiness and a light yeastiness. The flavor is light and quite sessionable with just a touch of floral hop bitterness. Nice soft pale maltiness, a little light spiciness on the finish from the yeast. Light bodied and airy with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice and easy drinking Belgian Ale with just enough flavor to keep it interesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy pale golden with a fairly decent eggshell head that settles to a thicker ring and leaves some clingy, soapy lace. Nose involves floral notes, honey, some dusty and lightly funky yeast, citrus and spice. Fairly sweet, fairly bitter, slightly tart. Lighter bodied, decent action, a touch oily, with a lengthy yeasty finish. A nice Belgian blonde, good balance among all the elements. The hoppiness is nice and refreshing. It’s not stunning, but it’s pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Straw, a little dark, hazy, thin to moderate frothy white head, little lacing.   Moderate straw/hay, a little musty too, barnish.   Grassy, straw and hay, a little wheaty and mealy, light sweetness that
dissipates quickly.   Not as bright or bubbley as I would have liked, but still has a decent body.   Finishes pretty flat tho, a touch medicinal and mineral water like.   Pretty much middle of the road example, but without
some of the Belgian flair I get in others, without brightness and bubbles.   Meh...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Eureka Burger in Claremont. Glowing blonde pour with good foam. Funky sweaty nose with bright citrus rind. Warms up to a solid almost all Brett B nose. A nice surprise! Funky body with Brett sharpness, cedar, and grapefruit. Refreshing, dry, stinging Brett carbonation. Actually really nice.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at Beer Mongers in Portland. Hazed golden wheat body with a medium-sized white head. Strangely phenolic makeup powder, yogurt and coconut shaving aroma. Extremely dirty with a lot of foul plastic notes, oxidized pale malt, grain husks, dehydrated milk powder and green, raw hops. It’s only 5.5% but I get a lot of fusel alcohol from this one. A surprisingly messy beer that even without the overt flaws would be pretty far off from what is considered typical for a golden Belgian ale. The choice of yeast, whatever strain it is, seems to be the biggest problem, as it produced a lot of dirty phenolic aromas and flavor. I was excited to try a Belgian blonde made by a US brewery without any flavorings or treatments. Unfortunately there are so many brewing problems in this beer that it’s rendered undrinkable.
