COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An easy drinking Belgian-style ale, our Bridge Builder Blonde has a wheat flavored backbone from the malt, tempered with hints of clove, banana and pear. The name is an homage to the many immigrants who constructed the unique arched stone bridges all along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

bottled - purchased in Roanoke VA - Interesting golden amber color. Smells and tastes Belgiany. Aroma better than flavor though.

Growler during RBWG. Pours a cloudy gold with small white head that lasts. The aroma is fruity malt, dough, clove. Medium mouth with doughy malt, strong Belgian yeast, light bitterness, good.

Pours hazy golden and has a faint aroma of spices. Taste is a little under carbonated and seemed a little umbalanced. Lots of sweet banana and spice flavor, but somehow a little watery at the same time.

Total Wine, Fairfax twelve ounce: Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is bready with slight fruit. This does not seem like a belgian ale to me. Seemed more like an english blinde. Meh.

AKORN (220) - Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Golden color with a thin white head. Spices and Belgian yeast aroma. Taste similar to aroma. Nothing special, taste like a weak Belgian Ale. OK Beer

Travlr (14698) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Draft at the source. Hazy yellow color. Aroma of straw and light spice. Taste has mixed spice and rising white bread dough, maybe subtle citrus. Decent.

rosenbergh (7907) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2014
12 oz bottle. (Mr. Bill’s) Roanoke, VA.
Slightly hazy golden colour with a small white head. Belgian yeast, bready malt, sweetness, mild hops and some spices in the aroma. Not bad. The flavour is a bit more straight forward with yeast, mild bitterness, some sweetness and malt.

12 oz. Pours a cloudy orange-golden with a lasting film of cream on top. Nose is toast, caramel, banana, orange, peach and spicy dry grass. Tastes of spicy dry yeast, peach, caramel, wheat toast and a touch of banana. Light-medium body has a nice balance.
