Previously called Summer Blonde.
A combination of the highest quality wheat malt and British and American hops makes this lightly coloured wheat beer deceptively easy to drink with a superb citrus finish.

Bottled. A hazy light golden beer with a small off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt, oranges, and fruity yeasty notes as well as an acidic edge. The flavor is acidic with light notes of malt, flowers, and honey, leading to a dry finish. The body is light. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

Called Cornish Blonde on it’s rare appearance in Sweden too. Golden coloured. Very hop aromatic, big pear aroma. Light bodied with sparkling mouthfeel, wheat flavour and a quite bitter finish with citrus notes. Excellent and refreshing.

Cask at County Hotel JDW Ashford. Well this won’t be worrying our continental cousins in terms of wheat beer. Blond citrus and hoppy with some lemon and some banana fruit with a dry hoppy finish but none of the other traits you would expect from a white beer. Inoffensive enough

yngwie (16510) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle, thx to fonefan. It pours a slightly hazy, almost golden beer with some white bubbles excuse for a head. Citrusy, piney aroma on a malty, butterscotchy base. Pleasant citrusy and piney flavor with hay, flowers and some bitterness. Not much maltyness. Medium body. Fruity, citrusy and quite bitter finish. Medium body. A quite boring beer, but nothing wrong with it. Quite refreshing and quenching, but boring. (080822)
