FLAVOR NOTES

balanced, Belgian, crisp, light

DETAILS

A complex, light drinking brew, this Belgian-style ale is brewed with ten percent malted rye. Their house Belgian yeast creates peppery phenols and fruity esters while hops from the Pacific Northwest balance the malt sweetness. A beer you can come back to over and over – like a trusted friend. Extremely food friendly, this beer pairs with a wide range of dishes – from light apps and salads – to creamy pastas and grilled fish. Try this one in your favorite beer batter.

STYLE NOTES

Blonde Ale

An easy-drinking classic light beer also referred to as golden ale. They are light in color and are smooth and well-balanced in both aroma and taste. They traditionally are made with lager or ale yeast thus they have a ‘bready’ or wheatiness about them. They came about in the American craft beer movement as a great introduction to craft beers, definitely a great starter into your foray into the wild world of craft beer and then a staple.
