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.

Tap at Armsby Abbey. Siked to see this local-ish, less than 4% brew getting some good reviews.

Poured into the Tree House glass light orange with a sold finger of white head. Leaves nice lace on the way down and eventually dissipating into a slight cap.

Scent hints of good things to come. Definitely getting those Nelson hops. Earthy, citrus, lemon. Some bready backing but mostly hops.

Taste - great. Nice fresh earthy and citrus hops stand out with some grapefruit, spicy hop and light grassy dankness. Good amount of toasted bread here as well along with some graininess. Soft and flavorful hop presence with the lightness make this refreshing and in no way abrasive. Good stuff.

Mouthfeel is a definite highlight, perfect body - feels fuller than it should considering the beer, but still retains overall lightness and drinkability, with good amount foamy carbonation.

This was great, especially at Brunch. Lots of nice flavor coming out for a blonde ale, especially for one at this ABV level. Also, does a good job at still tasting like a blonde, not an IPA. Nelson Sauvin works great here for single hop usage.

Stopped by the Tree House brewery for the first time and picked up a 2L growler of this 3.2% session beer.

A: Poured a golden yellow into my new Tree House tulip with a very bubbly and frothy head that takes its time before settling down. Really nice lacing through out, continues equally on my now second glass.

S: A lot of solid aroma coming from this low ABV brew. Plenty of tropical fruit and good amount of Hops present.

T: Fruity, Hoppy, but incredibly balanced and drinkable.

M: Light bodied, goes down nicely, with just a nice Hop bite in the finish. Absolutely Sessionable.

O: A really enjoyable beer when you are sitting around wanting to polish off an entire growler in a sitting. Perhaps the best "Session" beer I have ever had.

Cheers!

750ml THB swing-top bottle filled at the brewery.

First THB glass pours with a 1/2" white head, over the cloudy light orangey amber brew. Head promptly recedes to an uneven froth, strong around the edges, with leggy slow-falling lace. Aroma is moderately tart citrus.

Taste has underlying citrus from end to end, tart upfront, earthy and rounded in the middle, with a sharp close. Lingers after the swallow as well. Mouthfeel is soft over the tongue and smooth, and drinkability is easy. As sessionable as the abv would indicate.

Filled at the brewery about 2 hours ago.

Pours a light fizzy head that fades semi quickly with a bit of lacing, hazy golden sunset yellow orange colored beer, similar to a wheat beer. The color is nice but the head left something to be desired.

NOse brings plenty of fresh Nelson Sauvin hops, grassy floral with a little earthy twinge, bright musty citrusy fruit but more like a light lemon and little pineapple orange like, little musty grape skin like vinous quality, all that with a touch of a light sweet toasty grainy blond malt.

Taste brings some golden malts at first, a little sweetness, but at the same time a dry grainy bready kinda malt flavor, almost wheat like but not quite, little toasty almost biscuit also but not quite, but a fluffy feel. Then hops, light bitterness but nice musty flavor, again plenty of Nelson Sauvin flavors, little grassy hay and slight earthy, musty grape skin vinous must, little floral at the same time light citrusy fruit again, just a hint lemony and grapefruit rind, abd quite a bit of that slightly tannic musty fruit skin flavor. Finish is dry but somehow a bit sticky, bitterness increases nicely but not a ton, lingering grassy floral hops, with a touch of spiciness and some light vinous musty grape skin again.

Mouth is med to a bit lighter bodied, tons of fluffy effervescent carbonation.

Overall pretty nice, showcases the Nelson Sauvin grapes well, and I'm loving the kiwi hops lately so its great. The malts bring enough profile to not only prop up the hops but bring their own profile and it melds well with the hops. Light easy drinking beer that I could pound a full 2L growler in the late spring early summer probably. Cheers Nate to another well done beer!

Just picked this up from Tree House less than 2 hours ago. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a hazy straw hue with a nice one finger white head that fades to leave a thin, thin blanket and light lacing. Solid, solid.

S - OOhhhh yah, this is Nelson alright! Quite pungent, dank aromas here with some faint pine, faint floral, light citrus of nectarines, tropical notes. Really cant get more pure Nelson aroma than this.

T - Fun, fun. So this starts with more of the dank pungent Nelson Sauvin hops with light juicy tropic notes, similar to passion fruit like another member posted. Just before it starts to go an IPA or APA route WHAMMY, grainy malty blonde. Faint lemon on the finish too with linger very slightly bitter Nelson. Quite balanced.

M - Mouthfeel is solid. Super crisp, light, faint bitterness on the end. Stuff is crazy drinkable, as it should be for the ABV.

O - Overall, a damn tasty beer....if you like Nelson Sauvin hops. This would be awesome on a hot summer day, just awesome. Well worth the purchase.

64 oz growler into a Tree House tulip. Dated March 32, 2013.

A - Pours a cloudy and dull orange/yellow body. Looks very much like grapefruit juice. Soapy and clingy bone-white foam stick around and generates loads of lacing with impressive retention.

S - Oh, how I love Nelon Sauvin hops! A bit of pungent dankness is quickly washed away by a flood of juicy exotic fruits. Nectarines, clementine, cantaloupe, and mango. Light bready malts. Finish returns to a dank edge. Smells so damn good.

T - Starts off with some of the danky dank and exotic fruits that the nose exhibits, and just as you think its going to take an IPA or pale ale route it goes all blonde ale on your ass. Clean and light grainy malts and some lemon. Finishes insanely clean.

M - Crisp and well carbonated, the bitterness is noticeable but faint. Super drinkable and refreshing.

O - This is the perfect summer beer, unbelievable high drinkability and it displays the Nelson variety so well. I wish I had kegs of this beer...
