3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a 1/2 pint taster showing a lightly hazed, golden color, with a white, bubbles & foam head that quickly diminished to a ring & film, and left some modest spots & streaks on the glass. The nose was light malt & wheat, ripe mid-fruit as apricot, some orange & lemon rind, light sweetness, and a touch of citrusy tartness. Highly seltzery effervescence, with moderate hop bitterness, a light body, and a finish that was crisp & dry. An uncomplicated but sessionable warm weather brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a yellowish amber color with a decent amount of carbonation to it. Has scents of summer wheat and citrus fruits. Drinks rather lightly but with a decent amount of flavor to it. Wheat and orange hints are the most obvious. Definitely a good summer beer that has a better taste to it that the standard Miller or Budweiser choice. Not anything fancy but something new to try.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a thin, bright white head that has decent retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is grainy, fruity, and a little tart. Flavor is quite grainy, seems to have a bit of a white wheat presence, cereal, bready yeast, light spicy and citrus hops and an odd tartness, that is very hard to pin down. Palate is light bodied, with a creamy entry, light to moderate carbonation and slightly drier, chalky finish. Not bad overall, a little strange for a Blonde.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Old Fashioned, Madison, WI. This beer is getting some low hits, but maybe people are thinking of this as more a blond and feeling disappointed. Or maybe this tastes way better on tap. I didn’t know what this was, but I assumed it was a Kolsch. Hazy yellow with a thin white head. Some hay and earthy hop notes in the aroma. Crisp malt and hop flavors. Some hay earthy malts that are layered with herbal and lemony hops. There is a touch of tanginess that balances it all out. So drinkable, I’d easily pound a half liter of this stuff on a hot summer day. Tasty.

This beer hit its mark for being a summer beer with hints of fruit and a wheat tone. I enjoyed it sitting on my deck during a nice summer evening.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Clear golden pour with a thin ring of off-white head. Nose is melon, honey, a bit of mango, and some doughy sweet bread. Taste is a bit flat. There’s a dusty yeastiness that mingles with a light bready base, but not much else. Not getting the hoppiness, so I’m wondering if this is an old bottle. A weird milky note on the finish--doesn’t end crisp and clean like I thought it would. Medium-bodied and slick, with a decent amount of carbonation. Pretty meh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with a soapy white head that fades to a spotty film with some faint lacing. Aroma is grass and malt with a faint citrus apple smell. Taste is lemon and apple with a very mellow tartness. Palate is thin and chalky. Easy drinker can see this being very refreshing in the summer time.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Heidel House Brewfest. Brilliant gold, almost amber with white head. Aroma of lemon zest, pale malt, and light hops. Flavor is an odd mix of lemon citrus, pineapple, and a tinge of sourness. Slightly sour/acid finish. Just not working.

On tap @ Old Fashion Madison. Strong lemon floral citrus aroma with bubbly head that. Light haze amber. Bitter and sourness is strong on the middle of the tongue. Bitterness fades a little after you drink more.

Oso does hoppy and dark beers really well. Again not really my style and the ratting shows...
