Pours lively, huge frothy head, and needs patience! Huge hop, orange, yeasty aroma, with a candy-like palate. Floral hop flavors, sweetness and bitter finish. Yeasty, bready in the middle. A beautiful deep golden farmhouse blond. Very nice! Tasted @ 60F.
Hof ten Dormaal is an original Belgian farmhouse blond ale brewed strictly via traditional methods. It is bottle conditioned and uses a top fermenting house yeast strain. The grain and bittering hops are produced on the Hof ten Dormaal farm.
The Hof ten Dormaal brewery also uses oil from rapeseed produced on the farm as the primary source of energy for the boiling and cooling process in their brewing, rendering the small farmhouse a uniquely self-sustaining brewery.
