Listed at the brewery as a Belgian Blonde, I am not sure if it fits that style or not, and giving it's not an option here, I went with what I *thought* it fit. Please feel free to adjust.

A: dirty golden, some haze making it translucent. Light head remains at edges, but really no lacing.
S: fruity, little maltiness, can't quite place the fruit-maybe kiwi, maybe some pineapple
T: sweet, honey and I swear a slight hint of coconut as the bitterness hits the malt. Maybe I'm influenced by the Unicycle I had that was 100% Sorachi Ace hopped, but I think this might have done as well. Finishes a little on the sweet side.
M: carbonation plays a little, but much of the feel is from the fruit-sweetness (and whatever it was that Mae me think Sorachi)
O: this was an intriguing beer to me. Little more on the malty side than I usually like throughout a beer (I do like malt forward beers). But I like Sorachi hops, and regardless of whether it's in the beer, the perception of it made me enjoy the beer.

Note: verified there is Sorachi hops in this beer
