Val-Dieu Blond

Part of a 3-bottle gift pack that included 11.2 oz bottles of this, the Brown and the Tripel and a Val-Dieu goblet for $11.99. Good value I thought.

Very light, almost dare I say it, macro lager like appearance, with some fairly aggressive carbonation. The carbonation is a little too much for me, and it leads to a rather thin body, mouthfeel and light, non-persistent head.

Definite Belgian yeast taste, but the “Pale” in Belgian Pale is really the dominant feature of this brew and it is surprisingly light and almost weak in taste and body. Nice finish that gives a fruity, dry taste, but by then the disappointment has already set in.

In a word, “Light”.
