by Brasserie La Debauche

This beer from La Debauche used to be marketed as ‘La Debauche Blond’, now changed to ‘Belgian Style’.  So while it is nominally classed as a Belgian Blond, there is also more than a nod toward an amber ale.

The beer is darker than a standard blonde beer, with a quite solid, biscuit malt body. A slightly lower level of carbonation adds a little weight to the mouthfeel.

The malt body provides an early sweetness with hints of peach, apricot, citrus, a good dose of spices from the yeast and a minerality from the hops.

Good length to the finish with an herbaceous bitterness, and pleasant lingering flavour. Somewhere along the way I got a small hint of saison about this as well, but can’t really point to why.  I guess it just adds to the catch-all ‘Belgian Style’ of this beer!
