Beer added by: jaasen64 on 01-12-2013

A Blonde Ale brewed entirely with Nelson Sauvin hops, a New Zealand varietal that melds beautifully with a simple bill of pale malts. This is a true "session beer" and one that does not make any compromises. It has a delicate bouquet of passionfruit and a slight lemon flavor that will surely quench your thirst.

Filled today @ Tree House

Foggy yellow color topped with a loose, bubbly head. Spotty lacing. Smells light, but freshly hoppy. Sticky, pungent hops...spicy, skunky, and fruity with some biscuity malts. Smooth, oily hop flavor with a very pleasant, fresh grainy finish. Floral and citrus notes mix with a bit of cracked pepper. Melon, grape, lemon, grass...amazing flavor for under 4%. Crisp, light, a little sticky with all those lupulin oils coating the mouth. Obviously super drinkable and a great introduction to Tree House. I can't wait to crack my growler of Julius.

Growler shared by Sean. Served in a Cantillon tulip at West Lakeview Liquors.

A - White foam settles to a thin cap, thick collar, and minimal lace. Transparent pale blonde body.

S - Very hoppy, with zesty citrus and light onion notes. A kiss of malt sweetness and some mild yeasty bread presence support things, but this is all about the hops.

T - The taste isn't quite as potent, but it's still pretty enjoyable. Zesty citrus, crackery malt, and light bitterness. Not super-complex, but plenty of flavor for the 3.8% listed on the tag.

M - Light in body, and perhaps a tad watery in conjunction with the lower growler-style carbonation. Slightly dry and crisp in the finish, with a clean residual texture.

D - An excellent take on a style that can be quite underwhelming. Fantastic session potential and tons of flavor for the low ABV. It's like a poor man's Walden. Another fine brew from Tree House; can't wait for them to get into their new brew house. Could easily drink 1L on my own, maybe 2L.

750mL swing top growler from the brewery. Pours a semi translucent gold color with very little head. Some lacing. The aroma is some light peach, orange peel, yeast, spices and bread. Not a big nose on this one. The taste is some peach, orange peel, yeast, spices, lemon and malts. Bitter orange peel at the end. Some floral hop notes as well. Light mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Never would have guessed the abv is only 3.9%. Overall, its a pretty solid sessionable brew that still packs a good amount of flavor.

Poured from a 750 mL growler into a tulip. This was filled at the brewery 4 hours ago.

Appearance: Pours a pale gold/yellow and leaves a finger or two of white, fluffy head which leaves some solid lacing on its way down.

Smell: Light citrus hops, a yeasty/bready smell, definitely some light lemon in there as well. Pretty light aroma.

Taste: Light floral hops, bitter lemon, some light spices and perhaps a hint of pepper. Again, pretty light on flavor but tasty hops take center stage.

Mouth-feel: Well carbonated with a light, creamy, buttery texture. Goes down extremely smooth.

Overall: Doesn't pack a huge amount of flavor, but the flavor that it does have is nice and floral and tasty. It's hard to put a finger on the exact flavors, but they definitely come from the fresh hops. This is really, really refreshing.

Visited the brewery on Saturday, July 13, 2013. Small crowd and no line. Dean is the man. Amazing property and such a cool operation. Can't say enough good things about Tree House.

A: Hazy, bright golden-yellow with a huge, fluffy, soapy, bright white head that leaves behind a bit of lace and retention.

S: Massive NZ hops. So resiny, so sticky, so pungent. Fresh grass, fresh sap/pine, tropical fruit. Everything you want from hops. There's that quality to NZ hops that I can't figure out a description for. All I know is that it's amazing.

T: As good as the nose. The hops shine but there is still some malt in the finish and enough Blonde Ale character to remind you it isn't a session APA. Which is a testament to the brewers.

M: What else can I say? Super smooth, super fresh, super delicious. Bright, pungent, refreshing. I love NZ hops!

O: I just might drink this entire 2L growler right now. For the style this is unbelievable. Top class.
