Tasted from can. Pours a hazy gold with thick white head. Citrus aroma. Moderately sweet with mild bitterness. Flavors of grains, hay, caramel, faint tropical fruit flavors. You think you'll be tasting an IPA and then get surprised by the low to no bitterness but very good for a blond ale.

Growler from Tree House, into a tulip glass. Pours heavily hazy milky light orange, medium white head fades quickly and laces well. Aroma is clean floral notes - passionfruit, lemon rind, light citrus. Taste is crisp, lightly juicy citrusy hops; floral notes of lime and mango stand out. Dry and clean on the finish, slight bitterness lingers but otherwise clean with very light mouthfeel. Loads of hops and opaque appearance leave this unidentifiable as a blonde, no complaints here. Incredibly rich and flavorful for a sub 4% abv beer, I can’t recall any session beers that came close to this. ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Canned 8/4/16, drunk 8/11 and another on 9/8/16.Johnstledger8 (1190) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 21, 2016
Incredibly hazy, multi-layered sunset hues, predominantly rosy-peach, with a white head atop showing strong retention.
Fresh sliced pineapple rises up immediately out of the can. Light mandarin orange adds juicy sweetness as well, with a subtle Galaxy spiciness/dankness in the background. Succulent, honey drizzled peach emerges quickly, as the malt mixes with the fruitiness of the hop. Impeccably clean and with no resin or alcohol whatsoever. Not as much watermelon as I usually get from Tree House, but Eureka doesn’t give that off as much as their IPAs do. Not as intense and lush as their IPAs, of course, being all of 4.1% but the aroma is still delightfully persistent and encompassing.
Lovely pineapple-tangerine in the flavor is juicy as hell but also cut with a light graininess from the malt. Soft, but not to the point of reducing the crispness on the end. Very light bitterness, enough to balance, but the light citrus and pineapple does all the work here, with just a touch of spiciness from the hop lingering. Key lime, melon, guava, pretty much any tropical fruit you think of can be imagined in some form here. Tight carbonation, no alcohol, no flaw. Just a knockout. Some day, not particularly soon, I will be able to buy this in a store near me. That will be a good day.
Can. Pours a dense cloudy golden orange with a lasting thin foamy off white head. Aroma is of dank pine, citrus, biscuit, floral. Taste is of citrus, light exotic fruits, melon, hint of spice. Light oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation. demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Nothing much to say here. Overall a good drink and quenches a thirst on on hot day with out having any real highs or lows.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2016 16oz can. Pours a hazy orange gold. Aroma of pine and mango. Taste of much the same. Watery initial taste of tropical fruit, bread, and light pine turns into a piney hop finish. Moderate carbonation. A thin but pleasant mouthfeel. Tastes much closer to an APA than it does to a blonde ale. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - AUG 9, 2016
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Delicate speckled lacing around the glass.
The smell had sweet juicy citrus over some sweet fresh grass. Light resin. Tropical fruits enter in as it warms.
The flavor brings together all of the previously mentioned aromas sweetly with a delicate bitter to juicy underneath. Sharp bitter rind-like aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation rides nice and low. Crisp sweet to bitter dragging across my tongue.
Overall, my hidden bias might come out with this one, cause it probably leans closer to an AIPA than a blonde by appearance, aroma and flavor, but hey the feel, well, it’s definitely crushable, hot damn! Hell yeah, I’d have again. bellco33 (819) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Poured from a can into a tulip: Pours hazy straw with a white head. Aroma is citrus fruits, straw, and pale malt with a little dough. Taste is more of the same, really sessionable citrus blonde. Nice beer! SG111 (1821) - New York, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Canned. Light lemon color. Small head. Aroma is dank, and tons of. Tropical fruit, mango, papaya, pineapple. Flavor is light spice, lemon, tropical fruits. So good for such a light beer. callmemickey (4542) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Hazy golden body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Brigt tropical and citric notes, mild mellon, pine, a touch of grass and resin, and the slightest bit of crackery malt. Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation, lively bitterness, and a nice dry finish.
