COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grisette Blonde is a pale ale that is very refreshing in summer. When drunk at a moderate temperature, it releases aromas of a richness that it is seldom found in other beers of this strength. Its head is smooth and white. It has a light yellow colour.

A real surprise. No, not the taste (I’ll get to that in a minute). The shock is that I found a Belgian Ale under 5% abv. This is like finding a four-leaf clover or something. Anyway, the aroma is just a terrific wallop of bready malt, followed by a similarly nice, crisp and spicy taste. A session Belgian, if there is such a thing. Truly a keeper.

All of the grisette beers are good, they are what we normally drink at lunch time, so we can still work in the afternoon ! Living and working in Belgium is hell :o)

Nose is spicy. Very spicy blond ale with notes of corriander and curacao. There is a sour bitterness to this beer that is quite pleasant.

9/VII/13 - 33cl bottle from Caprice & Délice @ home - BB: 28/V/14 (2013-617)

Clear blond yellow beer, big aery white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, some citrus, hay, little grassy, sugary, fine hop smell reminding me of Duvel, so I’m thinking Saaz? MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: little sweet, grains, fruity impressions, bitter hops. Aftertaste: some citrus, bitter hops, little fruity, peaches, nice bitter ending. This could very well pass for a Belgian style IPA, I think. Very good session beer.

A very nice Belgian blonde ale. Smooth, with a gentle spiciness. Somewhat hoppy. Yeasty. Very easy drinking.
