The beer comes in a pale yellow color.

The flavor contains lots of grapefruit, orange peel, with a light malt body and a slightly yeasty or doughy quality. Hints of tropical come out of this beer as well.

The back end is dry and clean. Slightly lacking on the back, but that is expect of such a low ABV beer.

A wonderful medium light body and lots of hops.

On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill. Pours a vibrant yellowish amber with a half inch of head. Almost no lacing. The aroma is very fruity with lots of tropical and citrus fruits. Pineapple and mango. The taste is more of the tropical fruits but with some bitterness. Mango, pineapple, and orange. Hints of pine at the finish. Medium bodied with almost no alcohol presence. Overall, a very good hopped up Blonde with a good deal of fruity hop flavor.


App-4 a-4.25 t- 4.25 m- 3.75 o-4.25 = 4.19
