Saint of Circumstance is our go-to, easy drinking, any occasion brew. We started by creating this tasty blonde ale using wheat for its lemony flavour and added Citra, Centennial and Amarillo hops. We took it to a whole new level by adding the zest of seasonal citrus. The result, a remarkably refreshing and balanced citrus blonde ale.

Look: Pours pale yellow, clear, with a 1 1/2 finger white head. Head disapates slowly over 5 minutes leaving slight head across the top of the glass.
Smell: Citrus, melons, cantaloupe, bubblegum.
Taste: Very light and watery on the front end, earthy and musky in the middle with a lemony sour bitterness at the back end.
Feel: Rounded and mouth filling, but with a soapiness to it that didn't thrill me.
This beer has a fantastic smell, but the taste and texture were not pleasing. This earns a B-

Pours a hazy golden colour with a slightly greenish hue, light foam on top that quickly reduces. Quite a strong taste off this one, the sour notes hit immediately and this is followed by a healthy dose of hops. Notes of lemon zest, orange peel and grapefruit. This beer has a light body and this lends to its smooth and easy drinking appeal. No complaints here.

Overall I quite liked this beer. It pours out with a colour and clarity that does not suggest anything exciting, and exhibits a mild citrous beer smell. However, the taste is nicely balance with a good citrous note, not too strong, and a nice level of hops that will not scare off those that are not into the higher IBU beers. One thing I did appreciate is the lower alchohol content, at 4.7%. Some of these citrous hop beers are getting up to as much as 6.8%, which makes me reconsider having a can before working with tools or driving. This one is a bit lighter both in flavour and hops, so more of a beer that you can have and do something after.

Saint of Circumstance has a medium, off-white head, a hazy, sediment-filled yellow-gold appearance, fierce bubbles, and moderate lacing. Aroma is of citrus zest and white wheat. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Saint of Circumstance finishes medium wet/dry.
