Headbutts your taste buds with floral notes, citrus zing, carbonated pop. The complexity is similar to Sam Adams’ Summer Ale. Thin white lacing on the head seals the aesthetic. A decent brew perforated by overwhelming potpourri undertones.

Monsanta or Manzanita or whatever they call themselves did the best could with a unpopular and boring style of ale. It is heavy on honey, clove, and definitely banana--sort of like a Hefeweizen. 22oz bottle.

Draft. Pours clear gold with a white head. Pale and bready malts, faint husky straw-like notes, mild sweetness, and faint floral bitterness. Good enough.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark gold with a half finger of quickly dissapating white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy with citrus and some herbal notes. Taste follows aroma, slightly tart and slightly bitter. Dirty cereal grains in the finish. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long, but abrupt finish. Not bad. Simple, but still good.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz can which was only filled with about 10oz pours a clear orange gold with a ring of white head. Nose has some soggy bread, a little yeast, some artificial orange, mild perfume, a little cheap white wine. Flavor has some lemon lime soda, a little detergent, some white grape, soggy bread. Watery finish. Not my favorite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bomber poured into a tapered pint glass. Rich, clear gold with a slight white head that quickly dissipates, no lacing. Aroma of honey, malt, and bread. Has a well balanced flavor, very quaffable for being 6% abv. Medium to light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, well balanced finish. This is better than average for an American blonde ale, but still rather middle of the road.
