BAYSVILLE, ON – Lake of Bays Brewing has announced the return of a spring seasonal beer that is inspired by the classic beers of Belgium as well as a favourite springtime flavour from Ontario.
Spring Maple Belgian Blonde Ale is a 7% abv ale made with Belgian yeast and Ontario maple syrup, and which has the following tasting notes from the brewery:
This unique beer delivers a beautiful amber colour with a slight off-white foam collar. The nose is maple with a good amount of hazelnut (noisette) accented by vanilla and caramel. After a few moments, there are aromas of cherries and just a touch of spice. The body of the beer is slightly sweet, reminiscent of caramelized apples with a nutmeg finish. There is also a slight floral taste that arrives a little late. The finish is smooth with a gentle bitterness that is surprisingly refreshing.
Lake of Bays Spring Maple Belgian Blonde Ale is available now on tap at select bars and restaurants in Ontario, with 750 ml bottles set to be on shelves soon at LCBO outlets throughout the province.
