Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Mr. Dunderbak's. Served in a pint glass.
A: Nice amber color, nearly clear with some chill haze. A finger's worth of off-white head and medium visible carbonation.
S: Fruity hops up front - citrus, tropical fruits, and grassy, with some toasted cracker malt.
T: Follows the nose - big citrus flavor (orange and grapefruit rind), tropical fruit, a bit of pineapple, all over a noticeable malt backbone. Mild fruity bitterness in the hang.
M: Medium body, alcohol well-hidden given the ABV, average carbonation sensation.
O: This is quite enjoyable. It doesn't look or taste much like a blonde ale, but it disappeared pretty quickly. Recommended.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
Really nice body color here. Crystal clear, and amber bronze and orange glowing. Rising carbonation of small pinhead size, and producing a nice big three finger off white fluffy head with lots of retention. Very inviting.
Nose is great. Toasty sweet caramel and brown sugar, clean smelling citrus hops, really nicely balanced with a big malt forward presence. Smells delicious.
Tasty toasty light rolling malts, with a thick sweetness. Not too syrupy but just a little. Finishes with a muted sweetness and a slow burried hop bitterness. Feel doesn't seem heavily carbonated but no complaints as the malt is nicely big but in control.
Taste wise it's solid and not mind blowing, but I love everything else about this beer they did a great job on this one.
