750 ml bottle into signature pint glass; no bottle dating, but was a recent release. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, grape, honey, biscuit, cracker, floral, grass, and herbal earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of hop, malt, and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, grape, honey, biscuit, cracker, floral, grass, and herbal earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, grape, honey, biscuit, cracker, floral, grass, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of malt, hop, and fruity yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, bready, and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good blonde ale. All around good balance and robustness of hop, malt, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Opened 1/6/15... seeing as how this was brewed in 2013, it's probably well over a year old. Here we go...

A: Pours a copper color with 2 fingers of fluffy head that slowly fades down to a decent cap that leaves some nice lacing

S: Herbal, tea-like hops and apple stand out the most. Plenty of general fruitiness as well, plus some light maltiness and sweetness. Not half bad given the age

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the tea-like herbal hops plus the apple notes, as well as some grape notes as well. Fruitiness comes in along with a wave of maltiness that provides a light sweetness that cuts the hops. Finishes with a very light bitterness and a bit of a musty quality (my guess is some oxidation from the age)

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Surprisingly holding up great with the age, which is a rarity with lower abv brews like this. Very drinkable and approachable, with nothing offensive or off-putting. Time to crack it open if you're still holding on to it for whatever reason

Mostly clear darker copper, not sure if this would still be considered a Blonde. A head a light lemon shade of cream, fluffy and fine, of decent retention. Smells of caramel, resin, biscuits, esters. Tastes (and looks) like an English Pale to me. Caramel, light almost apple-like tartness, toasty or biscuity notes, and tea, peppercorn, leaf matter, and rind in the finish. Medium-bodied, fine bubbles, sloshy, velvety, moderately crisp.
