(Saint John, NB) - Loyalist City Brewing has launched their latest summer series brew, Barefoot Blonde, a New Zealand Blonde ale brewed with fresh pineapple and dry hopped with the New Zealand super hop, Nelson Sauvin.
The beer pours a brilliant yellow with a crisp white head that gives off an aroma of fresh pineapple and a hint of grape from the Nelson Sauvin hops. The initial malty sweet flavor from the blend of 2-row and malted wheat used is complemented by the fresh pineapple flavor that lingers on the palate. The light bitterness from boil hops rounds out the flavor of this beer resulting in an extremely sessionable blonde ale that balances the fresh fruit, malt and hops.
Made with only grains, yeast, hops, and fruit, this beer is unfiltered and meant to be enjoyed fresh. Kegs were delivered to local accounts so make sure you get out to try this one while its fresh.
