3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(22oz bomber thanks to Mora2000) hazy light gold, effervescent bubbles and a ring of fine white bubbles. Nose of guava, passionfruit, quite juicy, smells excellent! Taste of cream, guava and passionfruit again, earth, very refreshing, quite well carbonated and a great finish. An excellent blonde! I’d drink this as an every day beer if I could get it regularly.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very nice. I get a lot of passion fruit, as well as some grain and wheat notes.
The flavor is also very nice. I get a ton of fruit: apricots, mangoes, passion fruit and a little bit of orange. I also get some pine notes from the hops as well as some bread from the malt. The bitterness is fairly low even though there is a ton of hop flavor.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. An outstanding blonde ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark golden with no head. Slightly hazy. Smell is cereal like malty grains with some honey smacks like subtle sweetness and a touch of fruitiness.. Taste is more balanced with slightly honey sweet malts and nicely bittering hops. Nice body and slightly crisp carbonation. Better than expected and flavorful and hoppy for the style. Good blonde.
