3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy gold pour with a 1 finger, soapy white head. Aroma is bready and lightly fruity yeast, spicy and floral hops with a little chestnut and mineral water thrown in there. Flavor is bready, toasty and lightly mineral up front, then light stone fruit, light nutty notes, some dried apple and finishing with more mineral and bready notes along with some floral and spicy hops. Light to medium body with a creamy feel and light to medium, blanketing carbonation. Good stuff overall, would be a good lawnmower beer.

Sweet citrus aroma with hints of toffee and caramel. Lemony yellow in color with a fizzy soapy head. Sparkling, crisp and dry with a nice hops and citrus presence. Overall I thought this was really good. I was surprised, I expected a bland watery beer.

August 11, 2011 - I’m not a big fan of blondes. Simple, shallow, and boring. I haven’t met a blonde I’ve been too excited about, and the Twisted Pine Blonde Ale is more of the same. At least one can say it’s pretty - a light yellow glow with curves and lines of orange, sort of a hazy look, and some attractive precipitation from the residual refrigerator chill. In the nose I catch some of Twisted Pine’s dedication to quality (even in the uphill battle against a style that just won’t play along), with ample banana and clove, and some corn lager aroma. White grapes and a dry champagne aroma keep this from smelling too much like a white or witbier. Light and fuzzy on the tongue, this blonde comes off as a little flat and undercarbonated. White grape juice flavors return in the taste, as well as the light corn tortilla taste, and a dry astringency. It’s hard to pick this up again when there are other attractive offerings from Twisted Pine, but I suppose the light and airy flavors have their place in a flavor line-up.

Pale gold with a frothy, white head. The aroma is very faint with some light fruit. It has a light body with a crisp texture and lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a dry finish.

Part of the problem with this beer sees to be false expectations. If this is a Koelsch, why call it a blonde. I was expecting something a bit citrusy with some spice, but what I got was a watery as hell bready session beer.

Bottle- Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma or grain, bit of malt sweetness and trace of citrus. Flavor follows the aroma with grain and mild malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Seems a bit bland. Light body, with just a bit of crispness. Decent drinker, that goes down quite easy. Sort of a middle of the road for the style.

Not really my style of beer. Very light which not a whole ton of flavor. Very clean profile though. Just not for me.
