An unfiltered Belgian style Blonde Ale with wheat and a lot of honey in every pour. We have also added a special spice blend to give it an added kick.

12oz can into tulip appears clear golden yellow with a white cap.

The aroma is fruity almost lemony with hint of sulfur.

Taste is fruity like lemon and fresh grain sweetness. A mild tartness across the finish.

This is light in body with modest carbonation. Really not sure what to make of this, its a unique "blonde" ale with a twist to make it interesting.

Poured from 12 oz can into snifter glass. Poured a hazy golden blonde with a nice white head. Sweetness on the nose that I can't place. Sweet and spicy taste. I found very refreshing. A nice light feeling beer that I typically enjoy on the golf course. Highly recommend.

Appearance - Pours cloudy orange color with thin white head that quickly dissipates. No lacing.

Aroma - Light Belgian yeast and spices, Slight sweetness some orange. Clove and coriander.

Taste - Light banana and clove, coriander hints of light hops sweet bread and light Belgian yeast.

Feel - Medium bodied, creamy and smooth. Light carbonation.

Overall - A pretty tasty Belgian, the creaminess seems a little odd with this beer but still tasty.

L: Poured from a can to a tulip glass. Had a golden color and a hazy consistency. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. A good amount of lacing.

S: A sharp, not entirely welcoming aroma of light hops, honey, yeast, and some spices.

T: Tasted of a tinge of Belgian-style yeast, a light smattering of hops (not quite enough), an odd chemical element (I can't find a better way to express that), light spices (pepper) a bit more of the honey than necessary, and malt. There's an aggressive harshness to the flavor that kind of drowns out any chance for the best ingredients to shine through. Not that interesting.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a somewhat harsh finish. Medium-bodied.

O: On the whole, this feels like a missed opportunity. The honey could have been an interesting addition.

Pours a muddled, opaque orange color, with a fluffy white head that recedes and does not lace. Smells faintly of Belgian yeast and spices, with a sweet malt presence. Tastes initially like a sweet and malty blonde ale, but the mild clove, spice, and banana esters come through in the end. Feel is smooth, mild carbonation, balanced but would be sweet if not for the yeast contributions. Overall, this is a pleasant, and very drinkable blonde ale, and would be welcomed on summer nights with some hot BBQ! Cheers!

Yellow golden in color. Slightly hazy in appearance. Honey sweetness forward. Rounds out with golden ale flavors of pale malt and lower bitterness. Slightly Metallic. It's ok.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy and deep gold in color, finger and a half of head, with very little lacing. Smell is of honey, floral Belgian yeast, and maybe honeysuckle from that combo, which works very nicely. Taste is like a very floral honey that combines well with a decent malt sweetness and phenols and esters of the Belgian-esque yeast qualities. Feel is good, medium-light bodied, easy drinking without being thin or watery. A fairly solid sweeter version of a Belgian pale. Fragrant, pretty flavorful, and very easy to find and afford in central VA.

Nice hazy gold pour with an ample white head. Definite honey in the nose at first, but then the spiciness emerges, and the expected yeast; a nice experience. Taste is certainly yeasty and sweet, as expected, but not too sweet, which is important to me for a beer like this. Likewise the spices add character without being distracting. Quite easy drinking, but much more than a simple thirst quencher.
