Bottled 4/4/13, consumed 5/29/13

A - Cloudy yellow-orange pour with a one inch head which leaves scant lacing

S - Pear, cloves, banana peel, esters, lemon

T - More pear and cloves backed with a sour, funky yeast flavor. Prickly and alive, this beer reminds me of Duvel and Damnation

M - Prickly, well carbonated, light, smooth and lively with a dry finish

O - A very tasty, easy-drinking blonde ale. I can't believe I've never tried this guy considering I see it all over but will definitely have it again. Cheers!

(on tap at Russian River, Apr 2013)

A: cream yellow hue with a Kräusen-like foam top.... notable lasting haze.... more of a blonde ale than a "pale".... a few strands of lace stuck at the top of the glass.... love those blondes...

S: doughy, lemon peel yeast aromas hit first... some pale malt seems to slowly poke through... pretty straight-forward, though, like the rest of the beer

T: balanced between butter cookie dough malt and softly spicy banana esters.... delicate overall.... fruit and malt accentuates in the finish, but still mild and dainty

M: sort of a fluffy, open texture across the palate - low gravity + ample carbonation?.... a smooth silky flow establishes itself once the initial head dies away.... quite a light feel, though "effervescent" I'd call it not

O: a solid, pan-appealing blonde ale... nice "session" opener
