Bruges Bombshell

 Belgian Style Blonde Ale

back-cat not-avail


The Bruges Bombshell Blonde is a full flavoured, unfiltered ale brewed as tribute to the enormously satisfying Belgian ales tasted by Brewmaster Paul Holgate on a July 2011 family holiday in Belgium. The Bruges Bombshell has been carefully crafted by the Holgate team to represent a true Belgian blonde style ale - and reclaim the style name "blonde" from the insipid so-called "low carb" lagers foisted by the corporate brewers of Australia on an unsuspecting public.

Speciality Belgian malt flavours and residual sweetness from Belgian candy sugar added in the boil combine with aromatics from a unique Belgian abbey ale yeast. Is that enough Belgian for you? Very mild bitterness from Australian Topaz hops make this summer seasonal a full-bodied, but refreshing option for sunny summer days.

For those of you worried about your figure, the difference between our blonde and the “low carb” beers is the equivalent of three jellybeans. For those of you worried about flavour, the difference is much greater. Enjoy a Bruges Bombshell Blonde while the season lasts!
