Pours a clear medium gold,with bubbles rising long afterwards, producing slightly more than a finger of frothy, shortlived, off-white head that leaves little lace. Aroma is very thin, a little cracker & pale malts, faintly fruity, a little citrus & faint grass. The wheat is detectable as an afterthought. Taste is thin biscuit & bready malts, some light toast & fruit, yeast, some wheat in the background providing a faint hint of banana in the lemon & bitter finish which intensifies in the bitter, mineral, chemical aftertaste. Mouthfeel is on the thin side but not quiet watery, moderate-high carbonation, crisp, prickly & dry. Overall a little disappointing with low drinkability for a Blonde Ale, a brew style with the reputation of being thirst quenching & easy to drink.
