A seductively soft, easy drinking blonde ale, with an emphasis on a fragile and complex malt character. Made with Belgian candi sugar, honey malt and select Belgian and American grain. Slightly sweet and creamy; perfect for the session connoisseur and the timid domestic drinker looking for an introductory craft beer.

Plain old beery smeel. Clear pale yellow. Mild co2. taste is mild as well. No real ill ale effects can be detected. Overall not bad but could be a little more refined.

tmongoose (1663) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Draft sampler, poured a clear yellow with small white head. Typical blonde style aroma. Malty sweet and some Belgian characteristics in the nose. The flavor though not a fan was decent crisp hop finish, sweet malt maybe a touch of corn.

Not comparable to true Belgians, but this isnít that bad. It isnít cloying and the body is pleasant. Tried at the brewery in 2014.

DrSilverworm (8538) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewery. Clear golden color. Thin ring of white head, a row of lace. Light body. Lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Sort of a bready flavor, hint of lemon, light bit of pepper. Kind of a rougher feel to this. Light bitter taste, light sweet. OK blond, not great.

Had this at the brewery on tap. Light and refreshing. My wife liked it. I opted for the IPA and the brown ale. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
