BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
treehousebrew.com

Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A Blonde Ale brewed entirely with Nelson Sauvin hops, a New Zealand varietal that melds beautifully with a simple bill of pale malts. This is a true "session beer" and one that does not make any compromises. It has a delicate bouquet of passionfruit and a slight lemon flavor that will surely quench your thirst.

thanks rob! something about this beer just doesn't do it for me. I love treehouse and dug the citra version of this beer, but this one...it's good, but for treehouse it is bottom of the catalog that I've been lucky enough to try. Very drinkable and the nelson is definitely there, but the beer beneath the hop seems to light.

I have tried so many TH beers. They all so good to amazing in their own way. The Eureka line is no exception. Light, crisp, super drinkable. The Nelson hops with the light taste of grapes is delicious. Ever pop the skin off a grape? You get the taste of the meat of the grape. Awesome. Brings back childhood memories. The Eureka line are beautiful summer beers.

L: Bright yellow, hazy, nice white silky head.
S: Up front is a sweet grape aroma. What follows is a dank, wet vegetal like smell, followed grass/hay, and just a touch of lemon
T: Very light, refreshing beer. Just a touch of sweetness, an excellent grain character, and finishes with a very light dry bitterness. Key is everything is balanced quite well, which makes this very drinkable.
F: Typical of Treehouse, the body rocks. Light, frothy, carbonation is about medium. Smoother than an oil slick on a fresh ice rink.
O: I cannot wait to kill a couple of these by a fire on the 4th. Such a very nice beer.

Light mouth feel. Nice white grape nose with some onion and garlic. Thin mouthfeel compared to other Tree House beers. Loved the beer thought. Yellow/golden in color.
