Big thanks to daysinthewake for getting this growler out to me. Served in a Russian River TION goblet. Pours a clear straw-golden color with a nice white head. The nose has a touch of light pilsner malt plus a really nice bouquet of floral and slightly-spice hops. Some perfume. Light fruity notes. Really excellent. Very light. Flavor is likewise extremely well integrated and light on the palate. Extremely easy to drink. Light body and a dry finish. Excellent. Would love to have this year round.

Growler split with friends.

A: Pours a slightly hazy pale with a thick bone white head. Head slowly faded into a soft collar and film leaving some streaky patches of lace.
S: Spicy and herbal notes of dry grains and leafy, citrusy hops. Very light smelling and crisp.
T: Super clean and grainy. Crisp notes of pale malts, Belgian yeast, and citrus are light but work well together. Tastes like a blonde ale with a Belgian twist.
M: Light body, thin but crisp mouthfeel, easy carbonation. Refreshing.
O: Probably the lightest saision I’ve had, but I liked it. Very easy to drink and refreshing. Nothing super complicated, but if they were going for a crisp low alcohol Belgian blonde, they hit the mark.
