COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A morning awakens with the soft glow of golden perfection. Hazy rays of sunshine peek through the silence, bringing the first light to a new day. Scents of daybreak and sounds of a new beginning permeate the air. Make your morning, evening, or afternoon glow with our vanilla coffee blonde ale. We’ve gently infused a delicate blonde with Madagascar vanilla beans and locally roasted blonde coffee, creating a palatable work of art, reminiscent of a vanilla latte paired with a freshly baked scone.

Hazy golden pour with a white head. Grassy, malty aroma with a hint of vanilla. Nice blonde ale flavor with a little vanilla, but I only got the slightest hint of coffee.

Clear, straw gold, lacing white head. Good label on a wine bottle bomber. Subtle and inviting vanilla and toasted soy nut aroma. Moderately sweet, nice vanilla tones, soft parched bittering. Medium body, Ladyfinger cakiness at the end with some toasted sugar. Very nice. Thanks to someone down at Proof.

PorterPounder (8393) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at While Foods. Sparkling medium golden pour, soft, creamy snow white head, decent lacing. Aroma has some whiffs of vanilla, a touch of orange creamsicle. Sweet flavor, hint of vanilla, light coffee, some biscott accents. Crissp mouthfeel. Decent.

Draft... This is the ale equivalent of a pale lager, including the corn and rice. It tastes and smells like an overly sweet blonde ale. There are no coffee or vanilla beans here. This is not good. There’s nothing going on here.

The brewery calls this a Blonde but I’m not so sure about that. Wonderful aromas of coffee and light vanilla. Coffee/vanilla notes are not as pronounced in the flavors as they are in the aromas. Slight hop bitterness at the end. Fairly light body. An interesting beer and it was quite enjoyable.

oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2016
Pours a nice deep amber color. Aromas of hops/coffee/citrus. Strong hop flavors with malts and a peppery backend.

dchmela (3089) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Tap at brewery. Pale yellow pour. Light coffee and malt nose. Clean malt, light bitterness and well balanced coffee taste. Very good.

3.6
jbruner (5560) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Pours a hazy gold from the bomber with thin white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of sweet malt and Belgian esters, coffee is mild. Taste is more toward the coffee, cold brewed mild roast, vanilla sweetness. Clean but full bodied, mild carbonation.

2.9
suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Golden pour. Big white head. Plenty of lacing. Big whiff of coffee. Some malt notes. Vanilla in the front taste. Sugary malt in the back. A bit cloying.
