Bent Brewstillery Lakeside Blonde

This 5.7% ABV beer is described as a fruited amber blonde ale. It is from the Bent Brewstillery of Roseville, Minnesota. It takes the Nordic Blonde amber blonde ale and adds honey, passionfruit and guava. 

The beer pours light amber in color, the color of dark honey. There is a thin, short, fizzy, white head. The aroma is fairly mild, mostly passion fruit and guava. The taste is also mostly passion fruit and guava, a shot of sweet, but then a kick of fruity tartness. There is a mild bitterness, more passion fruit bitterness than hop bitterness. The intense fruit flavors make the beer seem thin and watery. There is some tingling of bubbly carbonation. This is an experiment that, for the most part, did not work for me.
