Strawberry Blonde

Review - Belmont Brewing Company's Strawberry Blonde

Strawberry Blonde, Bronze Medal Winner, 1997 World Beer Championships

This exceptional Fruit Beer is Blonde in color with a fantastic strawberry aroma and a mild, slightly dry strawberry finish. 4.5% alcohol by volume. -- Belmont Brewing

The Belmont Brewing company was first stop in our California adventure located right on the sandy beach of Long Beach. With an indoor and outdoor dining, you couldn't ask for a better location. The brewery is small, but has a complete offering of beers. Size definitely does not matter. It's a quick walk through the brewery because it's in clear sight behind the bar. We talked shop with Blackwell, the brewer, and were quite happy with the educated bar staff (Andy). The food was tasty and complemented their selection of beers. We ordered a sampler, followed by their blends. We recommend Long Beach visitors to stop on by. You will not be disappointed.

Pours a medium sparkling yellow body. Small white fizzy head. Fully diminishing with good lacing. Light malty aroma with hints of light bread and strawberries in abundance. Initially light sweet with a moderately sweet finish for an average duration. Light body with an oily texture with soft carbonation. The Strawberry Blonde rivals the Sea Dog Blueberry which is one of our favorite fruit beers.
