Hazy light gold color. Aromas and flavors of spiced praline, scrambled eggs with cheddar chive, zucchini raspberry bread with rosemary oil, and book pressed flowers with a round, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, refreshing, medium-long finish displaying notes of frosted banana cake, apple cobbler with candied orange zest, and sweet and peppery spices finish. A finely balanced and delectable Belgian blonde ale for all occasions.

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.
