Draft at Autumn Brew Review. Pours a straw yellow clear color with a big fluffy head. Strong citrus and lemon type aromas with a slight biscuity smell as well. Very sweet up front with some nice fruit and spice type tastes. Some wheaty type flavors as well. Ends rather cleanly. Good lace forms on the glass as the head settles down a bit. Overall, I nice and easy drinker but not extremely complex.

This won a silver medal at the GABF in the Belgian and French style ale category.

Pours a white head. Good retention with some lace sticking to the glass. Color is pale light straw yellow. Very hazy.

Aroma: Pale malts, bready, earthy hops. Not to much here, but I guess it is a blonde ale. Pretty simply.

Taste: Lemon zest, pale malts, coriander and spice, earthy hops, grassy, bready.

Mouthfeel: Creamy with a light body. Medium amount of carbonation. Ends really dry.

Overall, it is a decent beer. Not too much going on, but a decent amount of flavor for it being a blonde ale. Decent drinkability. I would like this on a hot summer day.
