- brewed with blood oranges. 4.5%

A: Golden pour gradually turns to a tangerine orange with a dense clarity. A dirty white thin spongy-bubbly topping is quick to dissipate. The coloring is real nice, no lace with some visible suspended protein material.

S: Freshly peeled oranges, tangerines, with some distinguishable pink grapefruit. The strength is medium per style quite nice.

T: Im guessing the blood oranges is what i'm mistakening for pink grapefruit. Lightly tart, dry, citrus-grapefruit pulp. Very breakfast like drink, lightly dry and tart finish.

M: Feels like wheat backed, good substance wise, high attenuation, lightly dry and tart with a calming carbonation.

O: Overall very light abv of 4.5% and grapefruit juice like flavor makes this a perfect breakfast drink. The alcohol is very soft if not hardly noticeable. Good flavor, but as a blond, more of an off shoot variety then your typical norm. (920 characters)

On draft from a friend's sixtel.

A - Shady Blond pours a hazy orange color with white foamy head.

S/T - Delicious orange smell and taste are extremely prominent. Lots of orange flavors up front.

M - Lightly malty and thin with a clean finish. Nice lacing.

O - Overall, this is a great summer beer. (302 characters)

The blood oranges gave this blonde ale a darker then usual color. It was a very refreshing beer with those oranges for natural citrus sweetness. I would serve this up at a summer BBQ. (183 characters)

draft at the Brewery tap room, served in a shaker pint glass.

appears a cloudy hazy straw color, with bone-white head. starting with the smell, there is no hiding that this beer was brewed with blood oranges. Very pleasant orange aroma.

taste is a nice balance of light malt and the citrus orange flavor. fairly dry finish. thin body and crisp carbonation make it an easy drinker.

overall, a good summer seasonal, definitely thirst quenching. (447 characters)
