Seeing as it felt more like Yuletide than Eastertide on our igloo-building Ardennes winter retreat, I decided to try Tongerlo Christmas Blond. I’ve actually getting a slightly tired of brown ales anyway -- which is no comment on this beer's excellent sister, Tongerlo Dubbel Bruin 6° -- but more on that later...
Tongerlo Christmas Blond pours with a wonderful bronze colour and a nice puffy head. The taste is not hugely challenging or distinctive, but it’s got hints of candied peel and mint, with a hearty bitter aftertaste. It goes down nice and easy with a velvety mouthfeel. 6.5% alcohol.
Whatever the season, I’d have it again.
