Murray’s Sassy Blonde is believed to be he only beer of its kind brewed in the southern hemisphere. The style is generally only found in Belgium (a Belgium Pale Ale). A deep, golden colour with a tight, off-white head, Murray’s Sassy Blonde has a spicy-orange flavour and aroma, with hints of toasty/biscuity malt and finishing with restrained bitterness. The unique characteristics of this beer are derived from a distinctive Belgian yeast and imported Styrian Golding hops. With a moderate alcohol content of 4.5% alc/vol, Graeme recommends Murray’s Sassy Blonde as an excellent accompaniment to seafood.

Aroma: light hop with slight toasty caramel malt. Flavour: a flavour matching the aroma. I thought this really nice but blanded out toward the end.

floydian1 (1354) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 8, 2009
Bottle (330ml) from Dan Murphy’s. Pour is hazy golden blonde with a healthy cream white head that is short lasting but still leaves a decent lace. Nose is plentiful oranges, soft honey malts, light fruity hops and a hint of vanilla. Taste is moderately sweet golden malts with a nice spicy bittersweet hop finish. Mouthfeel is light and tingly with a medium body. Rather lacks the body and complexity of an authentic Belgian ale (which admittedly usually have higher ABVs) but still a pretty good effort by a local brewery. Recommended.

hawthorne00 (3504) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2009
Bottle. Light bronze, off-white head. Smells of orange peel. Tastes of it too. Nice matching lightly toasted malt. Some fruity hops, mild finish. Lacks a little weight.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours golden orange with a white head that doesn’t last long. Aroma is of honey, caramel and malt with some yeastiness backing it up. Flavour is similar but fruitier displaying citrus, pineapple and banana. Although I like this beer and appreciate what the brewers were trying for, I can’t see myself buying it regularly.

330 ml. bottle. Aroma of herbs and spices. Small head, mostly lasting. Orange colour, and sparkling. Medium body. Bitter flavour, with good duration. Good session beer.

Can see what they are trying to do, and they do a good job of it. A low alcohol belgian pale seems a bit odd, but this has a great yeasty nose. Unfortunately the body and therefore taste suffer. Still good solid drinking, but not something I would actively seek out.

mkel07 (5153) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2009
330ml bottle. Copper in colour with a mixture of small and large bubbles that tried to make a thin wispy head. Mixed aroma of different spices. Strong tart taste with a long aftertaste and good strong body. Feels good in the mouth and the flavour is absorbed throughout the whole mouth.
