Great looking blonde ale, yellow-tan and perfectly clear with plenty of rising bubbles and a big white head that had some staying power and left some lacing too.

Aroma is strangely odd, almost skunky but more like an actual skunk than a skunked beer, weirdly animalistic and heavily earthy, with some wet-dog funk. Flavor is a bit more hoppy with floral notes up front, some citrus (lemon peel) and a quite notable malt backbone, especially for a blonde ale.

Body is weirdly almost like a berliner weiss. Reasonably high carbonation keeps it bubbly.

A truly oddball and weird one. Now this was picked up as a single, so I only had one to base a review on. I'll try to pick it up again, and if there's anything not right about this particular bottle, I'll re-review the beer. But it doesn't seem like there's any infection or reason to not review the beer. The store that sold it generally takes good care of their beer. So for the moment, there you have it.
