An easy drinking Belgian-style ale, our Bridge Builder Blonde has a wheat flavored backbone from the malt, tempered with hints of clove, banana and pear. The name is an homage to the many immigrants who constructed the unique arched stone bridges all along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Growler... RBWG 2013... Pours lightly hazed and light yellow with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is bursting at-the-seams with spiciness – overbearing notes of clove and coriander. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. The flavor is mildly sweet and loaded with clove spiciness. Lengthy, spicy finish. I could have lived without that overbearing, clove-like phenol. I’m no fan of that. Growler courtesy of ygtbsm94!

burg326 (5265) - Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Poured a dirty gold color from the bottle with aromas of dough, light fruit, some banana, and esters. Flavors match the aromas decent, but not what I expected, more Belgium-y than a blonde like the name suggests.

raymow (1374) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2015
bottled - purchased in Roanoke VA - Interesting golden amber color. Smells and tastes Belgiany. Aroma better than flavor though.

djd07 (9533) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Growler during RBWG. Pours a cloudy gold with small white head that lasts. The aroma is fruity malt, dough, clove. Medium mouth with doughy malt, strong Belgian yeast, light bitterness, good.

Eberndt (235) - - FEB 16, 2015
Pours hazy golden and has a faint aroma of spices. Taste is a little under carbonated and seemed a little umbalanced. Lots of sweet banana and spice flavor, but somehow a little watery at the same time.

mansquito (5107) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Total Wine, Fairfax twelve ounce: Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is bready with slight fruit. This does not seem like a belgian ale to me. Seemed more like an english blinde. Meh.

AKORN (220) - Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Golden color with a thin white head. Spices and Belgian yeast aroma. Taste similar to aroma. Nothing special, taste like a weak Belgian Ale. OK Beer

Travlr (20907) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Draft at the source. Hazy yellow color. Aroma of straw and light spice. Taste has mixed spice and rising white bread dough, maybe subtle citrus. Decent.

rosenbergh (10000) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2014
12 oz bottle. (Mr. Bill’s) Roanoke, VA.
Slightly hazy golden colour with a small white head. Belgian yeast, bready malt, sweetness, mild hops and some spices in the aroma. Not bad. The flavour is a bit more straight forward with yeast, mild bitterness, some sweetness and malt.
