From Red Collar Brewing in Kamloops in the Thompson Okanagan comes their “Blonde Belgian-Style Ale”. The beer pours a citrus fruit, honey and yeast. The flavour is of citrus, citrus rind, honey, bready malts, Belgian yeast and some mild bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 32. This blonde was quite tasty and I will be finding more in the future.
Commercial Description: A medium bodied ale with a crisp, dry finish. The use of Pilsner and French aromatic malts create a golden colour with biscuit and honey flavours. Fermented at lager temperatures with Red Collar’s proprietary Belgian yeast strain. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated.
