Over-carbonated. Peppery yeast taste. Hazy yellow. Boozy hop taste.

So this blonde beer looks rather...amber. That's odd.

Whoa. This beer is a mess. Too much malt. Way too sickly sweet. Some spices mixed in for good measure. This is supposed to be a witbier? Not even close. A Belgian homebrew, at best. But since it's commercially packaged and sold, it's total crap.

Was excited to try but was a little let down when I got the chance. Aroma, head, lacing, yada yada yada. The taste was lacking some carbonation and the "blonde ale" to me seemed a little closer to a saison, it was a little sweet to me. A decent beer but will not indulge again. Ill stick to the get bent IPA or try something else....
