Blonde du Quai

Blonde du Quai comes from my home province, New Brunswick, where it is brewed by Shiretown, in Charlo. It is sold in hand numbered 500mL bottles and contains 5.5% alcohol. This is a cloudy, golden ale, topped with a very thin layer of white head.

The aroma has considerable blueberry volume, as well as some slight yeastiness--this gives it a nose not unlike blueberry pie. It has a very thin mouthfeel and a mild, fruity flavour. There is very little aftertaste to speak of.

Blonde du Quai is an interesting and easy drinking little beer with a decent flavour. I'd have liked a bit more intesity in the flavour--this stuff was too mild tasting for me to really get behind.

Rating: 6.5 out of 10.
