What? Jean-Claude Van Blond is inspired by the action hero in all of us. It features a Belgian yeast strain and is built on a lighter malt profile with just a touch of oats for a silky body and some additional depth. You will find this beer intriguing and hard to defineówhich is just the way we like it. Why? The yeast provides some fresh dough, banana, pineapple and clove aromas to dazzle the senses. The lighter malts give this beer its color and soft grainy flavors. It is mashed longer and at lower temperatures to produce a dry yet complex beer. Although easy drinking, there is soft and surprising intensity just like the ancient Dim Mak technique!

12 oz. pour at World of Beer Belmar. This is a light golden color with vigorous carbonation, a clear body and a tall white head. The aroma is great on this. It seems like a basic beer, but showcases the yeast and all the character it can offer. There are hints of pepper, flowers, savory spices and banana. The palate is medium and spritzy. The first thing I notice is how dry this beer is and it works perfectly. All the fruity and spicy esters create a complex flavor profile. Nothing is overbearing. Malt is crackery and doughy. This is a really nice Belgian blonde.

Taster at Brewers Rendezvous. Pours a medium, white head, over a slightly hazy yellow (SRM 4) body....nose is moderate spice, with clove, light banana.....taste is clove, cereal, banana, dry finish.....mouth feel medium, carbonation adds clean acid. This is a typical Belgian Blonde, which is to say a nicely done beer. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7
