4.31/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

From a 32oz growler less than a week old.

Pours a golden color, very slight haze to it, smallish head with little lacing on the glass, head fades quite quickly.

Smell has a nice citrusy aroma to it, copious amounts of orange zest hit the nose so it's so far living up to its name.

Taste starts out with a citrus burst, very much on the orange citrus side of things instead of lemon which is more typical for beer, sweet malt, not much hops to balance things but fortunately it's not overly sweet, quite un-artificial in the flavorings so fear not, carbonation is medium-high with a light body and semi-dry finish.

32 oz growlette was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy pale yellow color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Orange, citrus, lemony, some banana, toasted, bready, and pale malts.

Taste: Same as above. You pick up more of the orange peel and banana yeast notes. Some chewiness and bitterness in the rear too.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp, refreshing, medium carbonation, a little chewy, and light bitterness.

Overall: Tasty, fruity, and refreshing blond ale.
