New Gluten Free Live Ale
Spec 658005 Brunehaut Blonde Bio

Gold Medal Winner at 2013 US Open Beer Championship

Belgian Blonde Ale 6.5% abv $3.49/bottle, 24 bottles/case

Top fermentation and bottle conditioned ale. The beer is de-glutenize during the brewing process. It is a 100% natural operation which allow to keep all the flavours and taste our top fermented and bottle conditioned ales. A sample of every batch is sent for analysis to an official laboratory. It must achieve a gluten level under 20 ppm to be commercialized as "gluten free".

Appearance: Clear, golden color. Pours with a fine, persistent head. 

Aroma: Beyond the yeasty essence, a subtle acacia and alpine meadow fragrance. Stable and persistent aroma.

The first taste is supple, balanced, almost round, pronounced with smooth, pollinated notes. Exceptionally pleasant aperitif beer. Thirst-quenching, finishes with a mild bitterness.

Beer and Food Pairings: Should serve especially well with a variety of vegetable-based tapas and light vinaigrette.
