Appearance: It's a cool, cloudy beer. A lot of haze from the grain that looks pretty different and neat considering it is a blonde ale.

Smell: The grains win here. There is a little corn, some malt sweetness, and some grassy/earthy scents.

Taste: Falls a little flat. The multi-grain smell is a bit more complex than the flavor. It is a blonde ale, but given the array of specialty ingredients I expected slightly more complexity. It is an ok flavor, a mixture of the grains (corn, wheat) with familiar flavors, but it doesn't meld that well.

Mouthfeel: A bit sharper than it should be. Perhaps it is slightly overcarbed, or the grains dry it out. There is something off about it.

Overall: An ok beer that I would not order again. The 6 oz. sampler was plenty. And for a light beer, this is not Confluence's best effort. It falls somewhere in the nebulous "American Wheat" category in my opinion, but the flavor isn't quite there. (943 characters)

One of Iowa's best efforts. Farmer John is a crisp, light, refreshing, easy drinking blonde ale. It is similar to an American wheat, think Boulevard Wheat or Widmer Bros. Hef. It's a crowd pleaser, can't really go wrong. (223 characters)

On draft at Reds Alehouse in North Liberty, IA.

Hazy yellow body with a small white cap. Mild aroma. Light grain and bread notes. Easy drinking. Bready, malty, light, mild bitterness. Simple.
