BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

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.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Delicate speckled lacing around the glass. The smell had sweet juicy citrus over some sweet fresh grass. Light resin. Tropical fruits enter in as it warms. The flavor brings together all of the previously mentioned aromas sweetly with a delicate bitter to juicy underneath. Sharp bitter rind-like aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation rides nice and low. Crisp sweet to bitter dragging across my tongue. Overall, very good as a well flavor-ed beer, but this seemed way more hoppier than a normal blonde/golden ale.
