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.

Golden color, clear. Lots of small bubbles rising up. Thick bright white head.

Spicy, citrusy, lemony, sweet pale malts.

Burst of hops up front, but it's not overly bitter. Spicy, citrusy, resin. Malt background, pale malt, grainy, slight sugary. Finish is a little dry. Body is light-medium, very crisp, refreshing, well carbonated.

It's very good.
