Red Hook Seedy Blonde

Posted: July 3, 2015 in Fruit/Vegetable Beer, Redhook Ale Brewery, Reviews

My drive to work today was really quick with very little traffic. But, I have never seen so many cops out. Luckily, I do the speed limit on days like that. Now, let’s talk about this beer. Val wanted a beer last night, and I brought this one up for her. She picked this out at Half Time. The bottle was cute, but I think that was the only thing going for this beer.


ABV: 5%

Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Seedy Blonde Apple Ale is a refreshing and drinkable blonde with flavors and aromas of apples. The finish is dry and slightly tart, balanced with pale and caramel malts and notes of red apple.”

Random: I’m not a huge fan of apple beers. Ciders? Absolutely down with them.

This beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated instantly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, straw yellow with high carbonation visible. The nose had a lot of corn and some skunk with very little apple. The taste was like a macro with an apple slice thrown in. Like the nose, it had a lot of corn and skunk and then some apple juice. The body was thin with high carbonation. It had a (thankfully) quick finish with corn and skunk. It was $1.79 for the bottle ($.15 per ounce), which is pretty cheap, but not for a beer this pathetic. This beer was absolutely awful and I wouldn’t have it again. I’m lucky this was Val’s beer, because this would have been a drainpour for me.

Untappd Rating: 2.0/5.0
