COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An unfiltered Belgian style Blonde Ale with wheat and a lot of local honey in every pour. We have also added a special spice blend to give it an added kick. Smooth and refreshing, but be careful Ė this oneís ABV will sneak up on you. This beer is straw yellow in color with a slight sweetness in the middle and an estery finish characteristic of the best Belgian beers.

Pours a murky golden into the glass, with a thin ring of suds that travels down the pour. The nose has some dank wheat and hay notes. Wheat and honey dominate here, but a little ABV shows through light muddy citrus undertones, some marshmallow and an overly sweet honey finish. The palate is medium-bodied and semi-active with carbonation. The mouthfeel is a tad cloyingly sweet for the style. Not that it isnít a decent pour on a 4th of July evening, but to keep things in check, itís almost par for the course.

jgb9348 (4628) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a bit of an orange glow and a very thin off-white head. Aroma of hay, grass, yeast, wheat and a bit of light funk - nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive honey flavour with a lot of yeast, grass, hay, oak and even the slightest note of wild yeast and brett. Aftertaste shows a pungent sweet kick from the honey and apricots with a good balance of malt and a little dry herbal and yeast kick at the very end. Overall, a surprisingly good beer with a great profile and a nice sweetness at the end, well balanced and nice to sample. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington, DC (Foggy Bottom) on 28-February-2014 for US$7.99 sampled at home in Washington on 10-June-2014.

Very refreshing honey blonde from Wild Wolf. Pours a hazy light gold, with a nice head. Nose is citrus. Taste is wheat, honey and orange peel. It finishes nicely and doesnít linger in the mouth. Cheers!

decaturstevo (4869) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Hazed yellow pour with light head and lace. Aroma is light malt and pepper I think on the nose. Sweet malt, pepper, and a good warm feeling as you drink. No distinct abv presence but as it warms you get the feeling this is not 4.5%. Sweet start and the pepper finish is pretty nice. Medium body with good carbonation. very ok blond

cosmo332 (1) - Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2014 does not count
A: Pleasantly fragrant with hints of honey, lemon, and wheat. A: Gorgeous appearance. Pours a cloudy golden yellow that almost glows. T: Starts with a sweet, honey forward taste with a medium malty backbone and is balanced out by spicy pepper and finished with a slight citrus aftertaste. P: A little thin on the palate but really the only complaint I can find with this beer. O: Dangerously drinkable. Beautiful appearance and nose, well balanced taste, easily sessionable although at 6.8 ABV it will quickly sneak up on you.

Nice Belgian ale with a good dose of floral hops. Pours cloudy blonde with hint of orange, good head and lacing. Finishes with hint of perfume. Comes together well. Soft carbonation. On tap at DC Beer Festival.

Darwenus (529) - Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2014
I had this on tap at Buffalo Wild Wings. It was a really hazy, lemon yellow with an average to large, foamy head. The aroma was a lot like a Belgian, lots of fruity, slightly spicy tones. Bananas. Malt. A little citrus. But the flavor was really, really sweet. I thought it tasted far sweeter than the aroma implied. Typically, overly sweet beers arenít my thing. But this brew was the perfect foil for my mango-habanero wings. I donít know that Iíd buy this beer to drink on itís own, at home. But Iíll have it again when I go back to B-Dubs.

4/7/2014. 12 oz. can. Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aromas of malt, honey and spices. A bit peppery with sweet honey and a dry, bitter finish. Not bad.
