Pale bright gold color. Phenolic, yeasty grainy spicy aromas of dried banana, cashew butter, coriander and baking spices, and clay with a velvety, crisp, bubbly, fruity sweet medium body and a smooth, appealing, medium-long apple tart, bubblegum, and wheat cracker finish. A very tasty and spicy blonde ale.

Belgian Style Blonde Ale

Belgian style blondes are light straw to gold in color and range in alcohol from 6-8%. This is not a classic style of Belgian ale, but covers the more commercially-minded Belgian ales that are moderate in both body and alcohol. Fruity Belgian yeast character and mild hopping should be expected. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Leffe Blonde, La Trappe Blond and Affligem Blond.
