Poured from 12oz can into my BeerAdvocate teku.

Appearance: good golden hue with a bit of haze, some apparent effervescence and a thin finger of frothy ivory foam atop. The color is rich and beautiful.

Smell: rather nutty and biscuity, and just a bit sweet. It's not bad, but perhaps a bit sweet for my taste.

Taste: whoa, quite a lot of sweet honey flavor right up front. It definitely has a very; oh, it's hard to say, but ... wildflower, perhaps, character to it. It's smooth, and the honey portion is nice, but there's not a ton of complexity here.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a mild carbonation and a pretty smooth texture despite that. Not bad.

Overall: this is not a bad beer, especially by the standards of blonde ales. It is a bit one-dimensional, but that one dimension is pretty well-done.

I really liked this beer. Despite the gimmicky theme, could really taste the avocado/honey (or was it palcebo..?) enjoyed at Barrel House 101, Ventura Beach, CA, May 2016
