Petit Blond is a 5% Belgian-style ale from the wilds of Norfolk County, Ontario. Another installment from my visit to the New Limburg Brewing Co. of Nixon, Ontario, this little number came in a 500mL bottle with an otherwise adorable little bird marred by a head of stringy Edgar Winter hair and a red bandana--a curious aesthetic.
The beer itself was a rusty orange, crowned with a thick fog of ivory head. It had a funky and fruity yeast-driven nose. The flavour took a similar tack, but did so in an undersized way. The mouthfeel was pleasingly dry, but unfortunately thin.
Petit Blond was a decent little guy with some positive elements, but overall, it fell a bit flat. It just wasn't lively enough for me.
Rating: 6.0 out of 10.
