On tap at LA's Blue Palms.

Pours light and medium hazy with little visible carbonation. Looks kinda like a Chardonnay.

Smells faint but nice, like a blonde ale mixed with cucumber lime infused water.

Tastes really good, much more complex than the aroma led me to anticipate. Great, juicy cucumber to start things out, getting gradually more tart until the habanero rushes in at the end, leaving behind a mild burn.

Lots of places are trying to do these fruit beers and not doing all that great a job. The tendency is go way too big, when by definition a blonde ale should be something drinkable and wispy. This pulls off the rare feat of complexity and lightness. It's very well done.

3.75/5  rDev -3.1%

Pours a hazy light gold with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of grain, cucumber, lime, and fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, cucumber, and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of chile heat on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with nice cucumber and fruit characteristics and a chile heat that pleasantly lingers on the palate long after each sip.

Serving type: bottle.

22 oz bought from the Grocery Outlet in Salem( one beside the railroad tracks) $4.59 Pours a golden straw yellow..small white head..leaves loads o lace! Nice aroma of cucumber and pepper( mostly cuck). Taste is balanced at first cucumber,lime but the heat of the pepper takes over after a few..also quite salty. Low carbonation and medium to light mouth feel.. Odd one but not unlikable. I would hazard a guess if its 90-100 outside..this is a freezing glass would go down a treat!
