Blonde

A complex, medium-dry blonde ale brewed with a secret blend of spices

Alcohol per volume: 7.5%
Volume: 650 mL bottle, 19.5L keg, 29.3L keg
Ingredients: Malted barley, wheat, sugar, spices, hops, yeast, water

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.

This beer was inspired by Belgium’s incredible variety of strong, blonde ales, ranging from semi-sweet to bone-dry, that offer a huge range of fruit, hop and spice flavours. Dageraad Blonde gets its depth and complexity of flavour from European hops, spices and our house yeast.

Dageraad Blonde is fermented with Belgian yeast, bottle-conditioned and keg-conditioned for natural carbonation, and an extra layer of complexity.

Available year-round.

Pairings

At the table, Dageraad Blonde’s fruit and spicy flavours compliment salads and desserts, while its tartness and effervescence cut through fat and refresh the palate, making it a good counterpoint to heavier dishes. Dageraad Blonde is also excellent paired with semi-soft ripened cheeses and charcuterie.
