3.15/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, cloudy, golden color with a half of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic with lots of bready, toasted malt, imparting notes of freshly baked biscuits and French baguettes. There is also quite a bit of funky, Belgian yeast, imparting notes of honey suckle, clover, grapefruit-like citrus and coriander. Smells delicious!

Taste: Quite good, really. Lots of bready, toasted malt up front, followed by funky, Belgian yeast, imparting notes of honey suckle, clover, grapefruit-like citrus and coriander. There is also quite a bit of honey and candied sugar-like sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, crisp and very effervescent as there is quite a bit of carbonation. With an ABV of 5.2%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a really nice, session-able American version of a Belgian blonde ale. Tasty, crisp and refreshing.

22oz brown bomber with a freshness date.

Pours a nearly clear pale copper hue, minimal lacing dissipates to almost nothing. Yeast, light phenols, ripe fruit and toasted grain in the aroma. A little malty with a semi-creamy medium body, lacking crispness, biscuity malt, phenols, very ripe apples, spice, light peppercorn, drying finish

Lack of a real robust carbonation really hurts this beer, flavors just don't seem to mesh well together as well. This one just does not work for me at all.

Seasonal collaboration brewed by Dominion Brewing Company and Dawson's Liquor.

Picked this one up in a trade with Dawson's Liquor in Severna Park, Maryland - poured into a tulip glass.

Pours an unfiltered yellow haze with a decent head that dissipates quickly. Smell is bready, grainy with a hint of citrus and Belgian yeast. Easy drinker that is slightly sweet and bready just as the nose suggests, light earthy hop and citrus. Nice body that is lightly carbonated and slightly chewy. Good summertime ale. Would definitely drink again.
