This pours a nice golden hue. There’s a slight, crisp lemony aroma to this with a similar characteristic on the palate. Finishes with just a touch of biscuit and a pleasing crispness along with a graceful tartness that I found to be refreshing and enjoyable. This might be a new contender for summer beers. Clean, crisp, and so much better than the sort of stuff that passes for a summer beer these days. Can’t believe this is a blonde ale—it gives me hope for the style! Seriously, this puts the majority of blonde ales I’ve had to shame.
