Blonde – Dageraad Brewing

Dageraad Brewing is one of the newest breweries in Metro Vancouver and is located in Burnaby BC.  Launching with two beer both of which are Belgian Style Ales they have been causing a bit of a stir locally.  The “Blonde” pours a golden colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of Belgian yeast, malts, wheat, grassy hops, citrus and some other fruits.  The flavour is grassy, bitter hops, malts, wheat, sugar, spices, Belgian yeast and a nutty finish.  The beer has an alcohol content of 7.5% but it does not show in the flavour much at all.  This is a great Belgian style blonde ale and anyone that likes Belgian ales should check this one out!

Commercial Description:  Crowned with a fluffy, white head and graced with a fruity, spicy, citrusy aroma, Dageraad Blonde is the pride of our brewery. A closer inspection reveals a note of nutty pilsner malt, whiff of noble hops, faint note of caramelized sugar and—when the beer warms—a sweet, floral breath of alcohol. And all that before you’ve tasted it.

Food pairing as per brewery:  Salads and deserts, semi soft ripened cheeses and charcuterie

    I really liked this at Biercraft Belgian Showcase, looking forward to grabbing a bottle so I can enjoy more than 4 oz of it. Which of the two do you prefer, Amber or Blonde?
