The Perfect Crime European Blonde

The Perfect Crime beers are collaboration beers that involve Evil Twin Brewing along with various others. For this beer, the conspirators with Evil Twin are Stillwater Artisinal Ales and Twelve Percent Imports. It is described as a hoppy blonde ale, is 6.5% ABV, and is brewed at Scheldebrouwerij in Meer, Belgium.

The beer pours a very cloudy dark golden and burnt orange. There is a short head of white to off-white foam. The aroma is floral, yeasty, funky, with a tart note. The taste follows the aromas directly. It is quite dry and moderately to quite bitter on the finish. It is amply and finely carbonated. There is a pleasant fruity and floral aftertaste. This is definitely a blonde ale in the Belgian style, being quite yeast forward.
