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.

Served in a nonic. Pours a golden hue with a semi-hazy clarity and a rocky, two-inch bright white head that sizzles as it slowly recedes into a consistent, soapy skim. Spots of lacing coat the sides of the glass after each quaff. Nose is bright and citrusy (lemon and tangerines) with a a hint of toasted malt in the background. Taste consistent with nose, but there's less citrus sweetness and more rind. Mouthfeel is light in body with a pleasant, even carbonation that tickles the back of the throat. An incredible session beer - no big flavors here, but everything coalesces nicely which makes the whole greater than the sum of its parts. I could drink this beer all day long.
