COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re bringing the Blonde back in a big way. A pale golden color with ample white head, the aroma is floral honey and spicy citrus. The flavor is a light and earthy with a touch of malt sweetness up front accented by a mild citrus tang and noble hop bitterness on the back. The finish is clean and bright. Altogether very drinkable, but be careful — At 8.25% ABV, this blonde is strong enough to make your head swim.

Had at Fretellis in San Marcos bartender recommended it. Crystal clear, pretty good, grainy didn’t seem the alcohol listed here. A little bitter, crisp but decent

On draft at the brewery. Clear amber pour, with an off white head. Sweetness, bready, grain, floral, citrus, mild honey, and notes of spicy yeast. Pretty tasty actually.

Draft. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Moderately sweet honey base, with lighter hoppy bitterness, and a hint of booze. Not bad, but necessarily strong.

On tap. Light yellow pour with a white head. Some malt sweetness and clean grain the aroma. Taste has some light bitterness and a semi-harsh finish after a light malt profile. Clean mouthfeel. Okay.

Creamy, lightly sweet but a bit adrift stylistically. Big boozy finish weighs this down for me. 3.1.

> A vegetal, souring mega mess

[ Tap ][ Latitude 33 ][ 4oz ][ Taster ][ $1.50 ][ 1/25/14 ]
>> Great lacing, clear golden pour. Odd dog breath nose, sauerkraut, chemical. Taste is bland, chemical, sauerkraut. Vegetal. Bad.

Awesome beer. Very smooth with a great mix of flavor. Obviously slight notes of honey and a good sweetness. Mid level maltiness that is not overwhelming. A bonus: it’s 8.2%. Great beer.

Tap@ Latitude 33. Clear amber color with ivory head. Floral, think flower aromas with a honey, herbal essence. Light pit fruit, tea leaf, spicy caramel flavors with a smooth medium body___not bad.

Deep golden with a white head - Nice malt aroma - Good sweet malt body with some floral hops , but the bitterness is fairly low - Malt that goes into a good finish - This was quite nice
