Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 122: Cuvee Belgian Blonde

I'm fraid my journal is becoming a Beer, Travelogue & Photos journal. Nothing of real subsance is being written here. My apologies if you are expecting Depth. Speaking of beer...

Cuvee Belgian Blonde
I suppose this is mean to be the Belgian Blonde.

Pours a slightly cloudy honey colour, with a moderate amount of carbonation - in fact it looks like I poured a glass of fizzy honey. Small white head that fades to a thin lacing.

Fist Sip: Quite a lot of lemony citrus up front, with a faint, long-lasting hops. Malt is trying to get through but it is largly hidden by the citrus flavours. Mouth-feel is smooth and quite dry, with a carbonation tingle on the tongue.

I dunno. I want to like this a lot, but it is... ok. Nice, but not excellent. I think I was expecting more. I could drink this in a BBQ session but it won't be one I would specially seek out. On the other hand, I would never refuse a glass or four if it is offered.

*pause to eat cheese*

Wow. It *does* go well with a strong cheddar! I could drink/eat this combination for quite a while.
