Hof ten Dormaal Blond

This is a 8.0% ABV Belgian farmhouse style bottle conditioned blond ale. It is from Hof ten Dormaal in Tildonk, Belgium. The grain and hops used in the beer are estate grown by Dormaal.

The beer pours a somewhat hazy honey golden in color. It has a tall, billowing and boiling white head. The aroma is pleasantly funky, floral, straw, barnyard and some wool blanket. The taste is a perfect unifying blend of the aromas in perfect harmony and balance, without any one predominating. It is sweet, yet bitter; floral, yet funky. It is crisply and finely carbonated and giggles on the tongue. This is a very fine example of a blond Belgian farmhouse ale.
