BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States | website

Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

750ml swing-top growler purchased at the brewery this morning and poured into a Tree House glass. This is a 3.9% sessionable blonde ale with Nelson Sauvin hops and a "smattering" of Galaxy.

A- Pours a hazy yellowish with about a finger of white frothy head that recedes at a decent pace and leaves light layered lacing. Decent carbonation of consistent rising small carbonation bubbles.

S- Fresh green hops (definitely can tell it's mostly Nelson), some pine, some slight floral characteristics, light citrus fruit (lemons, passion fruit), some faint malts that balance nicely with the hops. Very hoppy, fairly aromatic, nice light citrus fruit aroma, pleasant.

T- Fresh green hops balanced nicely with a very light malt presence in the background finishes with a light bitter juicy passionfruit taste that has a very nice lingering presence. The passion fruit definitely shines through here (in the nose it wasn't as easy to detect). Very well balanced and extremely flavorful.

M- Light, finishes fairly dry, nice carbonation, highly sessionable.

O- This is my first beer from Tree House brewery and I definitely highly enjoyed it. It had a a pleasant fresh hoppy presence mixed with a nice tropical passionfruit presence. It was highly drinkable and I could easily finish off a 2L growler of this, if only they sold them (hopefully soon). I definitely recommend checking this beer out and the brewery as well. They are very small, but definitely on the rise!
