3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the tasting room. The beer is a clear pale yellow-gold color with a medium white head that dissipates gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, earthy yeast and malt. The finish is hoppy with a clove and yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My Bottom Line:
Interweaving bubblegum, flowers, honey and citrus move towards a minty, herbal hop finish in this svelte and quenching Belgian-style Blond.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam covers the translucent golden. Beautiful even from the growler, eh?
-The mouthfeel is fluffy, airy and light.
-This is as easy drinking as you can imagine.
-At times, this feels like Dupont’s little expat cousin.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery as well as a growler. Pours with a crystal clear golden yellow hued body with a lasting white head that leaves good lace. Aromas are very hoppy, herbal and spicy, grassy. Pretty clean yeast wise, low phenol and even less ester (some dried fruit). Low malt character. Overall pretty clean, a touch peppery, nearly pils like. Flavors are dry, earthy, and crisp. Medium hops (grassy, herbal). Nicely dry and quaffable, low bready malt character, some mineral notes. Clean yeast wise with some peppery phenol. Very drinkable, lively bubbles, crisp with a light body. Excellent beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured up on tap at the brewery where it exhibits a nice clear gold body that supports a thin off white head. The modest aroma offers up kind of punchy notes like a sharp apricot and lime mixture that gets into a nice little malt graininess at the end of the draw. The taste starts with a little bit of grainy malt sweetness and then sort of slightly tart peach and apricot and maybe a little bit of a pear note going on. This finishes with a pleasing sort of grainy maltiness that is in contrast to the brighter, slightly tart fruitiness.
