Crisply fruity, dry and refreshing are descriptors that come to mind with mention of a Belgian Blonde Ale. Our version is also very hoppily aromatic. We brew (and dry-hop) 4-S with a combination of four hop varieties all beginning with the letter ‘S’: Sterling, Santiam, Saaz, Styrian Golding. The result is a light yet intricately complex ale.

Draught at Bashamichi. Nice cloudy blond color. Grassy, earthy nose with pils-like malts. Dry and spicy, bready malts and a bit of honey. Grassy, earthy hops, some citrus. Some acidity too. A bit dirty. Nicely drinkable, but not as inspiring as the other beers here that night.

Hazy orange colour. Small beige head. Aroma tropical fruit but not full on.  Bit of tangerine  too. Taste fruity, lemon bitterness at end, lots of biscuity malt. Initial orange tangerine. Quite drinkable. Pretty nice.

Hazy golden brown color. Very estery, dry, slightly astringent and tart mouth, a bit too hoppy perhaps, but love this little beer. A Belgian pale ale. Very nice and one of the best examples of a Belgian I’ve seen from Baird.
