Served in a Bruery snifter.

Thanks to cbeer88 for this bottle!

Reviewed blind as part of Blind BIF 7. It pours a mildly hazy goldenrod topped by a finger-and-a-half of cream-white foam. The nose comprises light orange zest, mild brett-like funk, light wheat, and a smidgen of bold banana. A strong whiff of lemon zest wafts up as the beer warms. The taste holds notes of waxy lemon rind, light brett-ish funk, dirt, and a vague but sharp bitterness that pervades the finish and malingers a bit. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, I found the odd bitterness to be too much to overcome here, especially considering the style. Not my cup o' tea.

Big thanks goes out to beeruser for sharing this one at a recent tasting! Served from bottle into a Boulevard tulip. Poured a golden yellow with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, and fruit. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, fruit, and wheat. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. While this was fairly nice for the style, nothing on it really stood out from anything else I’ve had. I really wish it would have been a little more complex here if I am completely honest. The earthy characters going on here were definitely the dominate aspect going on. Worth trying if you get the chance, but personally I wouldn’t go out of my way to do so.

Bottle purchased fresh on July 20th. Poured in to Bruery tulip. ABV listed at 5%.

A - Golden yellow with one finger of bright white head.

S - A light hop aroma up front with some lemon and earthy notes. A fairly big malt backbone contributes bready aromas and provides good balance.

T - Moderate bitterness up front with lemon, grassy and floral flavours. The malts provide some bready flavours and a good sweetness that balances this beer out well.

M - Medium body with a good chew. Moderate carbonation.

O - Not what I expected from the label, which listed cascade and centennial hops but I go no aroma or flavour from them. Perhaps they were used just for bittering. This beer was true to the style.

This bottle was courtesy of the infamous Adam Jackson. Thanks Adam!

Knockout Blonde pours a light bodied, bright honey gold in color with a one finger bright white head. It looks great. The nose is pretty bland and average for the style, just pale malts and honey. The flavors are somewhat dry and bitter. It features pale malt, an ever so slight touch of honey, and a prominent bitterness perhaps from the hops. That said, it certainly isn't hoppy. It drinks light and dry and is really a pretty mellow beer. I wouldn't necessarily buy this if I saw it but it wouldn't be a bad beer to open after a hot day ate pool or in the yard.
