Sixpoint Brewery
New York, United States
sixpoint.com

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.

Beautiful if unexpected beer. I have learned great respect for Six Point. This Sweet Action only reinforces that opinion.
Pours a bit hazy with a warm orangy- caramel tint, warm and full bodies looking. Head sticks around for a bit, once that gets sipped away there's a sticky laciness that stays on the walls of the glass. From the tap into a standard pint glass.
Even minutes after the pour there's a nice tingle from the carbonation on the tongue.
Flavor is hoppy without being hopped up, very little malt and no cloying aftertaste or coating.
Without knowing any better, I'd call this a pale ale, but I'm learning more every day.
Long after the sip, there's a tiny explosion of orange on the sides and back of the tongue.
Even 2/3rds of the way through the pint, I'm not sure that I can find anything that would remind me of a cream ale.
I will be back for another!!
