As always, really cool can / Bottle designs!

Look: Pours a deep golden orange, similar to the hues of Recursion IPA. No lace, no head in my pour.
Smell: Slightly bitter, coriander-dominant aromas with lingering wheat.
Taste: Hinted at by the smell, the taste starts out bitter as well. But while initially it has Gose qualities of slightly salty with hints of coriander, it quickly transforms into a much wheatier beer. Even, smooth, and honestly a really cool transition in flavor profile.
Feel: Carbonated, crisp, and refreshing. The colder the better for this one. Nice light body.

A good wheat from BL. Really nice transformation from bitter to wheaty , and a really crisp Blonde.

Sweet honey malty and herbal/floral nose on this one! Taste follows with a honey malty finish...not much else on the palate, but I guess that is the idea with a blonde ale. I am not the biggest fan of them, but this one is tasty and easy drinking.

It is a pretty nice and easy drinking blonde ale that reminds me a little bit of a pilsner.

Look: golden with an inch thick white head

Aroma: citrus floral hops/pine

Taste: The flavor is like wheat crackers, some citrus, and a little bit of mild floral maybe piney hops.

Body/Overall: light body.

Pours a pretty clear amber with fine, soapy head.

Smell is crisp and floral with notes of malt, white bread and citrus.

Taste is light, crisp and floral. Notes of crackers, citrus and rye with a soft bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a really nice Blonde, easy to drink and refreshing.

Color is a pleasant dark amber. Not totally clear, as it refracts light quite a bit. Lots of very fine head that leaves a lot of lacing. It's beautiful, dare I say.

Smell is basically a dense and hoppy pilsner. Light malt. Not complex, but plenty pleasant.

In the taste, I can't get away from the ideal pilsner. It has a little citrus in there, too. Light-medium sweetness. Mild bitterness. Malt reminds me of a lightly sweet bread.

Medium weight for the type. Medium-fine carbonation, and maybe a little more than I'd call ideal. Still smooth, overall. Unfortunately, the aftertaste is mostly nondescript hop bitterness, although at a relatively low level.

Very tasty, yet subtle and crisp ale made by a great brewery. Nice orange color with just a little head and minimal scant lingering lacing. Smells faintly of some hops, malt and caramel. Tastes similarly, along with some grain, toasted nuttiness and vanilla, but man does it ever finish clean. Great crisp feel, definitely sessionable. Nice feel to the aftertaste, no lingering bitterness or acidity.

Clear golden color, with great head formation, retention, and lacing. Smell is pretty weak. Some hop notes and maybe a hint of malt, but mostly it smells like grain. Whatever is the nose is really subtle. Taste is not balanced at all like I expect from a blonde ale. Malts are literaly non-existent, some hops are present. Overall, the taste is just way too watery and devoid of flavor. Very light body, with strong carbonation. I appreciate the ultra low ABV, but as far flavor, this is below average.

Got in a trade with RaulMondesi. 16 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy medium golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, and lightly toasted biscuit; with light lemon, pear, apple, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with pale malt and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, and lightly toasted biscuit; with light lemon, pear, apple, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice robustness of pale malt and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with solid malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Lightly increasing dryness from bitterness/carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a delicious American blonde ale! All around nice robustness of pale malt and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the minimally bitter finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Very clean pale malt showcase; with mild earthy hop balance, and restrained fruity yeast character. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. Was initially expected a hoppy blonde, but this is very classic tasting all around.

Light and serene, Raul feels like he is walking in a dream. Cloudlike delicateness is met by gentle hops, malt, and grain that have a strict crispness like your 3rd grade German teacher that ruled with an iron fist.

Raul like.
