This dry, fruity and slightly spicy Belgian Abbey Ale is a complex mix of strength and intrigue. Light bitterness balances out the clove spiciness and citrus like zest from this traditional abbey ale yeast strain.
Our No Brainer Blonde is a perfect beer for those warmer summer months. Ferment toward the cooler end of the temperature range for a cleaner spicer feel, more toward the upper end will give you more estery / boozy feel.
If you are going to experiment, a minor addition of coriander and orange peel towards the end of the boil will make this Belgian blonde more wit like. Another fun tweak would be to add 1-2 lbs of Belgian Pilsner malt to add more grainy flavor to the mix.
Blondes DO have all the fun!
