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:
An elegant showcase for Australian Galaxy hops, this riff on our favorite blonde ale has just the pale malt bill in common with her sister beer, Eureka. Delicate and pleasantly hoppy, with aromatic and flavorful notes of pineapple, passionfruit, and citrus, you'll have a hard time believing this one is so sessionable. Refined and bright, this is the perfect beer for any occasion. We absolutely adore it.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this. Filled yesterday at tree house.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy light straw hue with a good half finger white head that leaves nice creamy blanket and spotty lacing. Quite nice.

S - Aromas of galaxy galore here with nice pineapple and tropical notes, sweet malts, light resinous hops, good light wet hop notes, incredibly aromatic and in your face.

T - Taste is much more bready than on the nose, light malts, solid bitter lingering finish, light tropical notes, pineapple, faint mango, quite nice. No alcohol, obviously, dry.

M - Mouthfeel is rather underwhelming, crisp carbonation, light dry bitter finish. Bit thin though.

O - Overall I enjoyed this beer quite a bit, love the tropical notes and the explosive nose. An improvement on the regular version.

Pours hazy, light yellow in color with one inch head. Taste is orange, pineapple, and mango. Light bodied and slightly bitter. Really impressive that they got this much flavor into this low an ABV beer. Perfect sessionable beach beer. Glad I stocked up on these.

Light, fluffy Snow White head atop a hazy yellow brew. Great retention.

Nice subtle aroma of orange peel, white wine, slightly dank herbs, and a hint of pepper.

Flavor follows: hop-forward, with notes of citrus peel and pulp, pepper, and white wine. Clean, light pale malt profile.

Lively and smooth medium-bodied feel.

Very good hoppy brew, punching well above its ABV in terms of flavor.
