Beer recipe - Belgian Blond Ale
StrongBlondBeer256x256.png
ABV 7.0%Color 22 EBC Bitterness* 28 IBU
Description
Recipe for a typical Belgian Blond Ale. Golden coloured beer, slightly malty, with light caramel notes and high complexity brought by the Belgian yeast. During fermentation, the yeast shows all its power: moderate-high extract attenuation and high production of aromas, such as fruity esters and spicy phenolics, typical of a Belgian blond. During the tasting, this beer has a dry finish, always asking for another sip.
*The bitterness depends on the alpha acid content of hops, boiling conditions and other parameters.
