look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

From a 330 ml bottle (February 2015 notched into the label) into a tulip.

A-The brew pours with a one and one-half finger head of white foam that drops pretty quickly to a thick cap. The color, a copper/golden/amber, is darker than some "blondes". Carbonation is readily visible.

S-The smell has some caramel, some grassy grain, and fruity, medicinal alcohol. Overall, the brew gives off a sweet, slightly sugary aroma from both the alcohol and the malts. Hops are noticeable, but bitterness is mild.

T-Taste follows smell pretty closely. The fruity, medicinal alcohol is clearly there, but never hot or overtly aggressive. There is a fair bit of caramel malt taste for the style. Hops are more assertive at first, but fade on the finish.

M-The feel is a good example of the style, soft, lightly-creamy carbonation and a medium body.

O-This is a good, but not great, beer. There is a good variety of flavors here, but it lacks the integration and chutzpah possessed by the best beers of this style. Feel is appropriate and I give extra points for the cool witch on the label (not really, but I do dig the label).

I drank it out of a tulip glass. This copper-colored "blonde" tastes quite raisiny. Although I purchased it from a reputable San Francisco beer store, it's possible this bottle wasn't refrigerated its entire life. The bottle does contain live yeast.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pour cloudy gold with a decent bar poured head. Plenty of stringy/webby lace.

Mild smell of cream, berries and clean very pale malt. No notable hop.

Starts with a crisp, full-bodied malt that gives way to a strong white pepper spice which lingers long into the aftertaste. Quite complex. Reminds me of a well made Kolsch with a pepper kick. The alcohol is completely hidden.
