A shaker pint of the current mysterious offering, AKA the Foothills location brewers not providing the Edmonton staffers with any pertinent info, as such.

This beer appears a hazy, dark golden apricot colour, with one finger of tightly foamy dirty white head, which leaves some nice stacked and striated lace around the glass as it quickly sinks away.

It smells of light bready malt, a tad musty, some muddled, but somehow sharp citrus notes, and dusty and weedy hops. The taste is more of the same, with a bready, kind of sour malt, aged, overripe citrus, apricot or peach mush, and some leafy, and mildly bitter hoppiness.

The carbonation is mild and innocuous, the body a sturdy medium weight, and smooth, but for a noticeable pithiness. It finishes mostly dry, the grain and fruit agreeing on this in their minor detente.

What you see is my best guess, style-wise, without further input from head office, as it were. As for the beer in front of me, it's a nice enough blonde ale, if a bit dark, which comes with stronger fruit and hop flavours than the norm. I'd have this again, when in a hop-fried mood.
