Brunehaut "St Martin Blond"
Brasserie De Brunehaut - Brunehaut, Belgium
Belgian Strong Ale (ABV 7%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a murky gold with a light brown hue and a small (1 finger or less) white fizzy head that diminished rapidly down to a thin film with a small collar, which did create some fair runny lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty doughy Belgian yeast with notes of apple, pears, banana and a hint of spice.

The taste was very malty with a nice fruity ester from the beginning, and then progressed with a strong yeast presence and a mild spicy bitterness towards the end. The flavor lingered for an average amount of time after the swallow, with a mild alcohol warming sensation at the very end.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a ticklish carbonation.

Overall this was a somewhat light Strong Ale both in body and in flavor, although it does offer an exceptionally smooth drinkability...
