Minutely hazy golden yellow color. Earthy aromas and flavors of spiced cucumber, turnip, baguette, and earth with a satiny, lively, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, long finish revealing notes of peppered greens, spiced melon, and lemon soufflé finish. A lovely savory Belgian blonde.

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.
