Special beach edition #2. I’m having a good old time at the beach house, Bach, crib or holiday home, call it what you will, and of course it’s even more prudent to drink local if you can.
Coromandel Brewing Coromandel Dizzy Blonde is made in the lovely 🇳🇿 Hahei, New Zealand, this one is a Belgian Ale – Pale / Golden / Single at 5.5% ABV, and about 165 calories a serve size.
Another bottle conditioned beer, leave the sediment in the bottle. I’d like to think that I would, and will for the most part, I might be tempted at the end to add the sediment, what could go wrong ?
Another cracker of a pour of beer, it’s fair glowing in the glass (might be the sunshine doing that) and there’s a banging aroma of that yeast.
It’s lovely, but it’s a bit bitter, which isn’t a bad thing, it’s just not the thing I was expecting which might have been softer notes and more of that bubble gum thing.
I hope it’s not the holiday mood but this is is 2 from 2 for local beers, and I’m really good with that outcome.
I think the nice thing is that these are ‘just beer’ there’s no fancy label, it’s variation on a theme, and so you’re not lulled into thinking this is a (chose from) barrel aged, cellared, special, limited, anniversary….
It’s just good beer, with a lovely label art.
Having said that though, and because this is an as I’m drinking thing, I find myself second guessing, and beginning to re-consider the bitterness element of this. Then I didn’t. Beer is an odd thing. Me drinking beer is and odd thing. Then I did. It’s irritating at a low level. a bitterness I don’t want in this style of beer.
I poured the sediment because I can, and in pdubyahworld it became a lot softer and enjoyable. I can talk myself into anything
The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 on the arbitrary number scale. It’s a lovely pour and a really nice beer of the style, although I didn’t enjoy that bitterness that seemed to some and go, it might have been me. But overall this is lovely beer, nicely done. I might have to see the Doctor again first.
Based on the Belgian Blonde style this beer offers subtle spiciness and delicate fruit esters that are typical of Belgian ale yeast while appealing to our more typical Pilsner lovers
Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.Philip himself.
