3.61/5 rDev +4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
The beer poured a bit dark for a blonde, but otherwise seemed pretty decent, with a light amount of head. I couldn't get much from the smell, but seemed lager-ish.
The taste did have a definitive oat taste (listed as having heavy dose of wheat and oat). The wheat (if I presume hefe) didn't play as much, but a small hint of banana is perceived. The beer is malty, but also dry, but it feels like it's grain-related more so than hops. Note that's it's conceivable I am talking out of my ass.
I'm not sure how "blonde" it is, but it's an enjoyable light beer with some body and taste, but does tend towards a lighter style in flavor profile, to me.
Serving type: on-tap

a - dark honey in color, one finger head is white and stable. Appears to be a lot of carbonation.
s - citrus and grainy. Snow smell?
t - it has a wonderful sweetness to it, like syrup at first. Hints of lemon rind and honey Ends in a well balanced hop flavor.
m - high carbonation, creamy in mouth, but a little acidic on the after taste.
o - A nice beer, one probably better suited for the winter than the middle of the summer, but I like the flavor profile.

A- Crystal clear medium straw colored body. Lots of carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Thin white head that stays as a thin layer of bubbles.
S- Wet grains, maybe a hint of dried wheat. Not much going on.
T- Slightly more flavor than the nose would indicate. Hints of sweet malt, some dried grass/wheat flavor.
M- Medium carbonation, light on the body side, but just enough to not be watery.
O- Not a bad take on a blonde. No real hop presence, but drinkable.
