This three grain Balgian Blonde Ale is insoired by one of Belgium’s greatest Tripels. Light spice flavouring and a rich, malty body balance nicely with the huge yeast character. Do not pour gently.

Draught@SBWF2014. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is caramel, fruits, some mild spices, mild yeast and quite rich maltiness. Flavour is fruits, some bready notes, mild spices, some resin and mild yeasty ntoes. Wellbalanced. but still lacks something.

Pretty hazy gold beer with a decent white head. Palate is light and crisp and fairly dry. Sharp minerals. Dry thin malt, touch of cream. Mild dried fruits and citrus. A pretty dry finish. Too dry, a struggle to swallow and malty - dull to boot!

Keg @ CBC Clerkenwell. The pour’s hazy gold with a medium white head. The nose is butterscotch candy, a hint of buttery diacetyl, some orange peel and general sweet belgian yeast aromas. The taste is much the same - syrupy orange and honeyed pear, buttered toast, a bit of grass. Syrupy body, a bit muddled by the mild infection. Overall, just OK. I understand this wasn’t on peak form.

Keg at Craft Beer Co. - Clerkenwell, London. I gather this beer (on tap) was not in optimal form, and I didn’t buy it; I did try a taste from someone else and I didn’t think it was that bad. There is a strong, doughy element to the beer characteristic of high levels of diacetyl. Indeed, there is also a lightly creamy, buttery texture, which I also associate with diacetyl. I wouldn’t call these traits ’bad’, per se, as I am not a person who writes off a beer because of diacetyl presence; although as this beer may not have been served as the brewer had intended I will try it again when I can. As it was, I enjoyed the beer. Plenty of dough, berries, rich sugars, vanilla frosting. Perhaps a bit heavy on the buttered biscuit front, but not bad overall.
