A shaker pint of the current mysterious offering, AKA the Foothills brewers not providing the Edmonton staffer with any pertinent info.

This beer appears a hazy dark apricot colour, with one finger of tightly foamy dirty white head, which leaves some nice stacked and striated lace around the glass as it sinks away.

It smells of light bready malt, a tad musty, some muddled, but somehow sharp citrus notes, and dusty, weedy hops. The taste is more of the same, with a bready, kind of sour malt, aged, overripe citrus, apricot or peach mush, and leafy, mildly bitter hops.

The carbonation is mild and innocuous, the body a sturdy medium weight, and smooth, but for a noticeable pithiness. It finishes mostly dry, the grain and fruit agreeing on this as a minor detente.

This is my best guess, stylewise, without further input from head office, as it were. As for the beer in front of me, a nice enough blonde ale, if a bit dark, which comes with stronger fruit and hop flavours than the norm. I'd have this again, when in a hop-fried mood.
