Belgian Blonde – 500ml – 6.8%
The Belgian beers are traditionally full bodied, well carbonated, and strong. We selected a mixture of Crystal and Vienna malts to provide the body for this beer, supplemented with Hallertauer and Czech Saaz hops to give this beer its unique flavour. The low to mild bitterness is sufficient to lend this beer enough hop flavour to offset the body and to balance the higher alcohol content, which at 6.8% (and 500ml!) is not for the fainthearted. Fermented at a higher than usual temperature, this beer has the typical backdrop of fruity esters, giving a hint of banana which dominates the Belgian beer styles.
Belgian beers remain close to my heart, having grown up 15km from the Belgian border with the Netherlands. As we say on both sides of the border with a pint in hand: Proost!
At The Factory we take pride in quality craft beer. We stick to brewing small batches to improve variety in our beer styles and offerings. We will take all feedback on board – If you have purchased one of our beers and have thoroughly enjoyed it, please let us know se we can learn which beers to brew again when they run out. Should you have a constructive criticism, please share this with us so we can consider your perspective. Due to the nature of our small scale brewery at times we may not have your favourite beer on offer. Should this occur, please leave us a message so we can incorporate your wishes into our brewing schedule. Finally, please follow us on Facebook to keep track of our developments!
Note: All our beers are hand crafted, unfiltered, and bottled by hand – some variances may occur.
