3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tab at the brewery, this pours clear golden with a light wispy head that leaves wispy lacing. The nose is of strawberries. Lots of strawberry citrus flavors, a little cracker, finishing with a light grassiness. Smooth and quaffable, this stands apart from most blonde ales, providing lots of flavor, complexity and substance (and honest interest) in an immense (and largely uninteresting) style that many beer geeks like me try to avoid.

Draft. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Clean malty base, and hints of fruity and flowery hops. Super clean and very drinkable. Good stuff.
