Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewer Kevin Watson's interpretation of a Belgian Blonde. Brewed with pilsner malt and traditional, noble hops (Hallertauer and Saaz), this 7.1% ABV, straw colored ale has a light to medium body and a clean, crisp finish. Refreshing and delicious, just in time for Summer. Winner of a Gold medal at the 2010 GABF.

I had this on tap at Quencher's Saloon in Chicago. $6 for an 11oz serving. This beer is only sold on tap, so don't go looking for it on your store shelves. You can only get it at a bar or restaurant that decides to put it on their menu.

The beer poured a straw yellow color but I could only coax just a ½-finger of white head out of it. The head only lasted about a minute but it left behind some decent lacing.

The beer smells like a mix of hard candy sugar, a little wheat, and some citrusy fruit.

This is more complex than most blonde ales. Bubblegum sweetness and funky Belgian yeast flavors hit first. Grassy hops add some mild bitterness while citrusy hops give it a lemony flavor. The wheat adds the final touch. I liked it.

Smooth, medium bodied beer with medium carbonation.

Haven't had a bad beer from Allagash yet and this one will keep that streak going.
