Blacksmith's Blonde Ale is a delicious Belgian-style ale, brewed with Candi sugar and an Abbey yeast strain from Belgium. It's flavored with coriander and orange peel (as well as the usual barley and hops), which all makes for a very intriguing, delicious beer! Appearance: Light to medium yellow with crystal clarity. Flavor: Rich, tangy, banana-clove flavor from the Belgian yeast, along with the hops and the coriander and orange peel. Aroma: The aroma starts with a sweet and tangy sensation, then fades off to a nice balancing maltiness. Well-rounded and well-balanced. Mouthfeel (body/texture): Vibrant, medium-bodied, a bit of alcohol warmth.

Had this at the brewery about a year and a half ago when Skip accidently filled my jug with it (I asked for AleSmith X). It's a clear yellow fizzy beer with a white head. It taste like a pale ale/koelsch with a lemon like tartness. Interesting, but not my favorite AleSmith brew.

Clear yellow, a slight lemony flavor. It certainly doesn't taste like the belgian it claims to be. More like a Koelsch.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 a pretty light and extremely quaffable ale, a little hoppy again while adding an interesting coriander flavor as well as notes of orange peel. Skip described this as a cross between a hoppy west-coast style ale and a blonde Belgian ale. Interestingly this ale, as well as other AleSmith Belgian ales, is fermented with a yeast from a Trappist monastery.
