3.8/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A-light gold with a thin white head

S-smells like creamed corn. good strength

T-comes in with a refreshingly light taste of belgian pale malts and spices. matching after-taste. very simple and clean. very decent for a light pale ale..

M-soft carbonation with a watery finish

O-one of the most drinkable belgian pale ales i've had. there are no negative tastes and slides down easily so quickly. the tastes aren't very strong, but they are of high quality.

3.75/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

On tap at the Bruery

Look: Pours a straw yellow color with a 1/4 head and ok retention and lacing

Smell: Citrus hops orange peel and a hint of wheat

Taste: The taste is very muted not too much going on here at all. There is hints of the wheat and orange peel and a touch of lemon

Mouthfeel: Light body and light carbonation

Overall: Good beer even thought it lacks flavor. It is light enought to the point that you could drink it everyday and for the price it is definitely worth it.

On-tap at The Bruery

A: The beer pours a hazed golden straw color with a small white head.

S: some citrus hops up front with a rather strong floral and perfume note. Some yeast notes to it with a bit of melon and fruit. Lots of spice and a bit of bready malts and cracker.

T: The flavor is quite light overall. Somewhat floral in nature with a light citrus quality and a little bit of perfume and floral notes. Light lemon flavors and very little bitterness. Some light yeast and a bit of spice.

M: Quite light in body with a medium level of carbonation.

O: Although it was advertised as light, I wasn't expecting it to be quite so light. But, it was good and easy to drink.

4.02/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

On-tap at The Bruery, named after the greatest of the area codes in the Southland,

A: Pours an opaque goldenrod with a light white head, some lace.

S: Heavy amount of spice, coriander-esque, with some grassy hops, with a note of pineapple.

T: Still a quite earthy flavour with some nice direct bready malt character. Hops are not as direct as the nose would predict, notes of grapefruit, passion fruit and grass. Good balance.

M: Light-bodied overall, never thin, a good solid body. Smooth and a truly refreshing beer.

O: The Bruery churns out a lot of these lower alcohol, Belgian blondes or pales with an American tint. This is one of their better ones, good for the summer months.
