Pale gold color. Fruity aromas and flavors of fruity caramel fudge, sour cream frosted fruit cake, and multigrain cereal with a slightly chewy, soft, effervescent, dryish light-to-medium body and a warming, refreshing, medium-length finish displaying elements of plantain chips, spiced peaches,oranges and yams, and white peppercorns finish. A nice warming Belgian blonde sipper.

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.
