Is this a gateway beer for the Belgian style? Let me pour forth…

Bouctouche Blonde is a Belgian style beer for the people. For many beer drinkers, Belgian is a scary word. Belgian beers can be intimidating. Someone might think: “I just want a nice smooth drinking, easy beer, not a job! Make it go away!”

From the land of Tripel, Dubbel, Quadrupel, Kriek, Lambic, Saison, Gueuze, wild yeasts, crazy bacteria, dusty brewery fermentation rooms, what’s not to be afraid of? This stuff can have its way with you. However, after many sessions with Chimay Grande Reserve, a cult choice of my posse back in the day, my respect and love for Belgians has grown.

So Belgian Blonde you say? The average domestic beer drinker might want to take a look at that, thinking: “Doesn’t sound too scary – just the Belgian part.  I like Blonde in most things.”

Think of it as the Belgian gateway beer style. Moon Hill’s Bouctouche Blonde, in particular, is creamy, smooth, a little spicy and very welcoming. You will find your palate morphing, responding, as you proceed to the end of your first glass. Belgians do that to you. They start up differently than they finish. It is of course you who has changed.

We are canning like crazy here at the Ale House and have just canned up a bunch of our very successful, local fan favorite, Bouctouche Blonde, a very friendly Belgian, beloved of Acadians. And that’s another story.
