This is a fascinating beer. Pours a clear golden body with white head with decent retention. The aromas are fascinating: lots of tropical and assorted fruits like pineapple, mango, kiwi, even some strawberries come through quite prominently, with floral notes and a lime-like zestiness in the background. The hops are more prominent in the flavor, which has a well-balanced hop to malt ratio. Fruit, grain and honey flavors are equal to the assertive hops. This is easily the best blonde ale I've ever tried. Brilliant stuff.
