Alengrin (4344) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2015
The blonde in this series, with added wheat and spiced with dried orange peel like a wheat beer according to the label, so should end up somewhere in between a typical Belgian blonde and a witbier, I assume. Very thick, clotted cream-like, thickly and complexely lacing, dense, off-white head lying over an ’old gold’ coloured beer, clear with lively fizz. Fairly weak and straightforward aroma of sourdough, unripe green plum, wet muslin, indeed dried orange peel sharply piercing through, clear iron (head stabilizers!), Granny Smith apple, dried flowers, unripe pineapple, straw, old paper and some soapy wheat. Crisp onset with restrained fruitiness, pineapple, unripe pear, gooseberry, remarkably soft carbo in relation to its looks (I expected it to be a lot more effervescent) but still tingling, orange peel has more a kind of wry effect than actual fraîcheur, so I suppose this has not worked out well. A neutral, grainy pale malt sweetishness follows along with a clear iron flavour as well as a kind of very soft, ’deep’ wheat sourishness, a tad soapy but in all very dull; finish is a bit yeasty with earthy, ’dirty’, leafy hop bitterishness underneath the continuing maltiness, bittering and drying with a floral, resiny, peppery effect. Again a boring Belgian blonde, of which there are many hundreds already; the wheat adds a soapiness to the nose and flavour but this is not necessarily a good thing, I think pure barley sweetness would have actually done this beer more good. And why use iron-based head stabilizers? In all: not deeply wrong or flawed, but forgettable at best and very blunt.

Can’t seem to figure out why the name is Special Blond cause it has very little characteristics which make it different from "regular" blond beer.
