4.34/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This one pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like fresh cut grass, lemon, grapefruit, tea, and oranges.

Like basically everything from this brewery, this is really solid. Folksbier just seems to really know how to nail lower ABV stuff. It's got a soft tea-like and grassy bitterness, with a soft melon/grapefruit/lemon/orange-y hop character. It's bold without even being intense.

This is light bodied, super clean, with a refreshing bitterness.

I find it really hard to find a bad beer from these guys. I've been wonderfully impressed with the Folksbier lineup overall.

12oz. can into Night Shift stemware.

Nose is ripe pineapple, citrus, mango and cane sugar. Sweet and soft. Beer opens papaya and mango with an accented citrus and tea in the middle. More soft papaya mixed with dried tea leaves and a light sprinkle of hop bitterness towards the finish. Simple but highly enjoyable. Body is light with moderate to ample carbonation. Soft with some bubbles on the palate and smooth and fluffy going down. Accented finish with a light, barely there aftertaste. Super drinkable.

Sometimes we all have to sit down and appreciate simplicity and drinkability. This beer is the definition of that.

3.87/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a murky medium bright yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate straw yellow + pale golden yellow colored highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense sudsy foamy bright white head that reduces to a large patch of mottled very thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Sightly stronger than moderate aromas of juicy tropical/mango, citrus/grapefruit, citrus/tangerine, citrus/orange, and floral hops over the top of light aromas of bready + biscuit malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of bready + biscuit malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of juicy tropical/mango, citrus/grapefruit, citrus/tangerine, citrus/orange, and floral hops that impart a light amount of bitterness which slowly fades away leaving lingering citrus hop flavors.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp upfront and slightly thin/watery.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a pleasantly crisp/refreshing mouthfeel. Enjoyable with a very juicy citrus hop aroma.

3.81/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that left lots of lacing down the sides of the glass and some wisps on the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with hints of pale malts.
T: The taste follows the smell but isn't nearly as citrusy and has a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked the smell of this beer, which seemed a little like a combination of citrus and dew.

Pours a foggy orange with half a finger of white head. Aroma is orange, tangerine, nectarine and biscuity, bready, wheaty malts. Flavor profile is nectarine, tangerine, mango and orange with hearty presence from biscuity, bready, wheaty malts. Mouth feel is medium-thick with a light effervescence that spins and whirls up on the tongue at the back. Overall, solid, with quality hops up front.

Draft.

maybe more of a pale ale than a blonde, light as this one is, its pretty hoppy too, dry hoppy, new wave, but i like beer like this, with such a soft grain character and high drinkability, quite flavorful without forcing anything. beautiful in the glass, almost delicate for being hazy, the name fits it. the hops here are mostly in the aroma and then in the finish, things like peach and pineapple come to mind, but its not the immediate tropical southern hemisphere hops that seem to be everywhere these days, its something a little more nuanced and restrained, almost savory, and i like it with the almost creamy feeling hazy wheaty body, hardly any bitterness from the hops, but this feels balanced and resolved and complete. its kind of a mix of the old and the new, but its cohesive and drinkable, i like how mellow it is, like it might almost seem too subtle next to some of the others we had in here, but i could drink a number of these for sure. solid beer, nothing particularly revolutionary about it or anything, but a pint i could make an evening of, which was the feeling i got from a lot of the beers in here. better than its ratings...

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look: Blonde. Very pale. No head whatsoever as poured at Jimmy 43 in NYC.

Smell: A bit of floral hops on the nose at first pour. That dies quickly and becomes nondescript at best.

Taste: This beers saving grace. Nice clean drinkable brew. Bit of floral, bit of bitter lemon. No pronounced malt flavors..now that Ive had a few swallows I get some (saison?) Yeast in the nose and on the pallet.

Feel: Maybe a bit more body than you would expect from your typical commercial blonde.

Overall: not a bad drinking beer. Good for a sunny patio. Not memorable in either a good or bad way.
