Our newest ‘year round’ seasonal. We know that makes no sense! It’s seasonal because we use the fruit that is in season at the time we brew. This Belgian Blonde ale has fruit added during fermentation and is filtered prior to packaging. Our first brew of Area 151 was done with blackberries which gives the beer a beautiful color. The beer is ever so slightly sweet, but it balances nicely with a little pepper and Belgian ester on the finish.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange-pink color with a thin creamy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of tart berries and grainy malts. The taste is tart and sweet berries with faint bready malts. Medium bodied, too much fruit which leads to a building sweetness that is not welcome.
