much better than i expected. nice hop/malt balance, slightly tart finish. most blonds are dull, this one is a cut above. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle from Total Wine & More in McLean, VA. Clear yellow pour with a large white carbonated head. This beer really sucks - little bit of sweet grain on the aroma, but it tastes totally artificial. Drain pour. chinchill (5025) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2012
12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet in Dec. 2011. Pours more than a little fizzy (think under-carbonated soda). Clear light amber. The fizzy head quickly dissipates, leaving no lacing. Smells bready, yeasty, floral and spicy. Tastes lightly bitter with a fairly good balance of spiciness, maltiness, and yeast. Floral and spicy hops seem to be ’enhanced’ with clove and nutmeg. A hint of bananas. Has a fruity, lightly earthy finish with good hop-malt balance. Light+ body. Coarse carbonation to start; not enough at the finish.
O: A crisp blonde ale with more spiciness in the flavor than the aroma. hopdog (12584) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2012
12oz bottle. Poured a clear yellow color with a small sized head. Aromas of grains, spices, and citrus. Tastes of citrus and light fruitness. Thin all the way around. DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle. Clear hay yellow color, medium white head. Nose of Belgian citrus and straw. A heavily citrus dominated profile with funky Belgian yeast. Not bad, but it seems like more body to balance the yeast would be a welcome change.

12oz bottle at the Flying Saucer in Little Rock, AR. Pours a lightly hazed, golden-yellow colored body with an inch thick, dense, frothy and foamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is wet grain, bread, a touch of yeasty spice, and a hint of fruit. Flavor is better. Grainy malts with a light bready sweetness and a touch of toast. Some yeasty spice in the middle with a few stone fruit notes before this finishes dry and grainy with a light bready sweetness and a light herbal bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium body and a moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a decent tasting blonde that made up for a lacking aroma. Some nice grainy malts with a light, toasted bread sweetness and a balancing bitterness. Unremarkable, but not bad. r464 (2360) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bready aroma. Starts off a bit watery, then builds to a yeasty, somewhat sour, fruity flavor. Light malt, little hops. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Bleh. This tastes a little skunky to me - like something has gone bad in the beer. It almost tastes like a lager mixed with a Belgian. emacgee (4677) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Pours a clean soft straw yellow with one finger of white head. Nose is spicy and sweet, notes of bubblegum. Lots of phenolics and yeasty notes. Very dry and light bodied with a spicy/prickly hop character. Light showing of alcohol. Raw fruit and yeast in the flavor with a slightly sweet finish.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head that sticks around. Aromas of belgian yeast and grass. Taste is dominated with yeast and some funky herbs and not much else. Watery mouthfeel and the more I drink the more it tastes like stale crackers. Not a very good offering.
