3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (500ml). No ClowGr’s tasting, shared with blankboy, jerc, mabel and tupalev. Very cloudy light gold, smallish frothy diminishing white head. Slightly sour aroma, plenty of sharp yeast and moderate spice - hint of lemon and dry grass. Taste - incredible surprise, heavy, thick fresh grassy bitterness, quite acidic, the malt’s way in the background here - man this is hoppy. Thick, still, acidic mouthfeel, long tart grassy-grapefruit pith bitter finish. Damn nice. Well done, Fred!!

Very sweet. The aroma is honey, light plastic, like a cough drop. The appearance is very hazy yellow, white head. The flavor is very sweet, honey, bubble gum. The finish is the most sweet, bubble gum, honey, light pine. Medium in body. Pretty unique, nice overall.

Ya quelque chose de très noble avec cette rafraîchissante blonde bue directement au pub. Des notes herbacés, citronnés et céréalière s’imposent délicatement dans un équilibre impressionnant. Buvabilité imposante.

On tap at Station Ho.st. Pours a My wife said this smells like new CDs. “The smell of a fresh spindle’. I got sort of a dusty musky paper note from it. Medium-bodied, slightly sweet, a bit of crackery grain, warm toast, musky yeast. Very nice, super easy drinking.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not exactly a typical blonde beer. Pours golden with ok lacing, some head. Some interesting helles-like aroma in malt. Finishes with light sweet malt. Average carbonation. Very grainy. Tap at new brewpub.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a cloudy blonde with a huge white head. Aroma is some lagerish bready malts with a noble hop. Flavor is somewhat fruity but also a bit grassy hop bitterness. The malt is bone dry but adds a little honey after the swallow. This is a good beer with some lager notes along with a nice ale yeast. Not 90 percentile good but better than the average blonde ale.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2013 Bottle from State Line. Pours cloudy gold with big fluffy white head. Nose and taste of freshly baked bread, fresh sugared cereal, citrus, pear, pie crust, yeast and spicy grassy hops. Soft carbonation. Medium body. Really nice balance. The best beer I’ve ever had in this style by far. I usually hate this style, but I wanted more of this. In fact, I might drive 3 hours just to get another bottle. It’s just that good.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear straw with some sediments, resilient white head sits on top. Flavor is pils malt, wheat. Finish is very herbal hops, some spices, too. Lingering herbal feel. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Felt very generic to me. I guess I don’t get the hype.
