Grimbergen Blonde Ale ( Belgium )

This is Grimbergen Blonde Ale from Alken-Maes Brewery in Waarloos, Belgium. This blonde ale variety is one of a group of beers that originated in 1128 at the abbey that Saint Norbort of Xanton built for the Premonstratensian canons regular in Grimbergen, and are now brewed by Alken-Maes Brewery. Enough with the History lesson. Grimbergen was one of my favorites. It is bright golden in color, light bodied with a fresh crisp taste; a hint of honey-like flavor and a finish that is super clean. Grimbergen is a very refreshing beer..
