Style: Blonde Ale
Alc/Vol: 7.5%

Description: Dageraad’s flagship brew, this beer was inspired by Belgian’s proud tradition of strong Blondes. Combining Pilsner malt, noble hops, candi sugar and a proprietary blend of spices, this beer attempts to recreate the variety offered by blondes, embracing flavors that range from the sweet and dry to the spicy, fruity and floral.

Tasting Notes: This blonde combines several notable flavors, ranging from the nutty and bitter quality that comes from Pilsner malt and Belgian yeast and the floral and crisp bite of Noble hops. Add to that the infusion of sweetness and complexity afforded it by the addition of sugar and spices, and you’ve got a pretty interesting take on this traditional Belgian style.
