BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Sixpoint Brewery
New York, United States

Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
If you traced from 2004, you’d see that SWEET ACTION is a representation of our palates at any given point in time… it’s a vibe more so than it was ever one distinct formulation. This version, a juicy, blonde wheat ale, is the latest iteration in that story.

lots of flavours coming through - beautifully balanced!

aroma: bready orange/grapefruit/pine

taste: light brown sugar, orange, orange peel, orange candy, grapefruit, bready malt, slight raisins and spice with a hint of smokiness. Loved the taste and balance of this beer.

very enjoyable, achieving it's aims of a sweet and bitter balance.

355ml can. Poured into snifter.

A: Looked like a Hefeweizen, amber very cloudy, medium head that
hung around quite a while, had floaters, lots of
lacing.

S: Lemon, cascade hop, hint of diacetyl.

T: Citrus fruits and wheat, yeasty, sweeter than a
pale ale, fruitier than a hefeweizen.

M: Creamy texture, minimal carbonation, very smooth.

O: As a fan of Pale Ales and a reluctant Weizenbier
drinker I’d say it combined the best of both beers.

Pours clear amber with a ring of white bubbles. On the nose I get sweet, bready malt with tropical citrus and apples, plus an herbal hop presence. The taste follows the nose but has a wider array of fruit: blood orange, apple, strawberry, apricot, along with that same sweet bread malt. It doesn't taste like any cream ale I've ever had, nor does it fit into any known category, but man is it tasty. Finishes slightly bitter with a medium body and good level of carbonation.
