Poured from bottle stamped JUL0912 to a Duvel tulip the beer pours a clear golden straw color with 1/2 finger white head with little retention or lacing. Looks average, really. The smells follows suit as there isn't much to report, a hint of wheat malt but that's about it. The flavor also is dominated by a strong wheat malt character, too much so. Little in terms of hop character or bitterness really. There isn't much aside from wheat. Adequately carbonated and light bodied. Overall, this is just an average beer. Not bad but not great. I'd easily pass on this again though it is easy to put down due to minimal taste, lol.

Sort of a pale to medium gold color, this beer does shine brightly though it shows a potential thinness beyond simply being light in body. There's lots of bubbling carbonation rising from the bottom, and it's needed as a foamy head struggles to surface. It does, though, and holds its own better than I'd think. Some reasonably decent spotting is also managed.
The aroma is very light, offering pale malts with some light citrus zest and sweetness both of orange and lemon. There's a hint of rind in there, though I get more the impression of watered-down juice mixed into dusty malts. I've smelled worse in a Blonde; more than anything, it's simply weak.
In the flavor, the weakness comes out to more ill effect than the aroma. It ultimately ends up making this beer taste more like a lightly flavored seltzer water than anything. Dusty malts actually go a touch astringent, it's got some corn husk, and it just goes way too thin and lacking in flavor.
It feels like seltzer water, too, and the best I can say is that at least it's crisp. Even that tingle falls off in the end.
