COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A play on our staple beer "Billtown Blonde" and named for Brugge, Belgium, this Belgian-styled blonde ale is light and fruity with a spicy hop finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a pale golden body with a thin white lacing. Sweet crisp malty notes, grainy with some light fruity esters, citrus and some spicy yeast. Citrus peach and an earthy floral finish. Good brew.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 1, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Spritzy lemon and yeast nose. Bright and vibrant. Pours with a hazed gold and a super-lacy white head up top. Flavor is good. A strongly citrus filled belgian yeast character, that melds well with a dry, but rounded malt body. Otherwise, this is very clean, there’s no rough edges. Great dry finish and lots of character all around. Very drinkable. Bubbly. Champagne-like.

kramer (5061) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2009
On tap, at brewery. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with a small foamy white head. Pale doughy malts with a leafy hop note and a bit of a dishwater note. Nice fruity yeast, it almost reminds me of a very light smelling Tripel. The hops get ya first, bright and citrusy with a nice fruity yeasty base, very nice malt backbone. It really has a similar flavor to a Abbey Tripel without all the alcohol. Mouthfeel is light and airy with a nice fizzy active carbonation. Some lingering leafy hops. Pretty nice for what I was expecting, wish that they’d replace the Billtown Blond with this full time.

dpjuart (1078) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Draft sample at brewpub. Pours yellow with creamy white head. Nose of yeasty fruit and spice, clove, apple and bananas, slight and teasing. A muddled malty flavor, bready biscuit with mild fruity esters and a decent amount of spiciness. Nice fruit ending, crisp with a little hop flavor and some bitter. Highly drinkable.

Nate (3759) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Sampled at the brewpub. Has a nice pilsner aroma with a light Belgian ale or wit notes. Spicy with light teaberry and orange peel. Light but pleasant. Light golden clear with thin white head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with light acidity and beany-pilsner malt. Good spicy flavors with a wit profile but less wheaty and more Belgian ale-like. Very drinkable. Bitter finish and after.

Naka (708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Sampled on tap at the brewery. Pours a clear golden blond with a small fizzy bone white head. Aroma is kind of a chalky rubbery yeast. Slight citrus fruit as well. Strong yeast flavor. Clove and citrus lemongrass. Citrus comes out more as it rolls around the mouth. Light and refreshing. Very light body. A very dry bitter finish. This beer grew on me as I drank more of it.
