Since picking up brewing after a long layoff, I have really been working on expanding my exposure to different beers. I have become a fan of Belgium beers especially blonde ales. While I love the dubels/trippels they just lay me out too fast! =)
Can you folks point me to some blonde ales I need to try?
Also, in regards to brewing blonde, which is high on the agenda, what hops strains work well in them? I am really looking for a balanced beer (not overly hoppy). While I do love hops, I am finding that too high an IBU count and I get an upset stomach. Its bad enough where I cringe when offered an IPA/APA...I love them but pay for it later.
“Filled with mingled cream and amber I will drain that glass again. Such hilarious visions clamber Through the chambers of my brain -- Quaintest thoughts -- queerest fancies Come to life and fade away; Who cares how time advances? I am drinking ale today.”
