Despite the played out boring and vaguely gender-normed based labelling I picked up the Red Truck “Ridin’ Shotgun” Belgian Blonde. Mostly because I really craved a Belgian blonde, but also because… no wait it was the only belgian blonde available. If i sound broadly antagonistic towards this beer its because i’ve never been really impressed with red truck. I was utterly annoyed by their boasting of winning the TSN 1040 craft bowl at Roamers burger bar (what a ridiculous sentence). That aside i like this beer, its good, i’d buy it again. It starts smooth with and hint of sweetness that fills the mouth pleasantly. The carbonation helped to give it the large mouthfeel and also helps to make the beer finish crisply with a hint of spiciness.
Also very cool is the beer stats posted on the side here:
Many of which are often posted but its nice to see SRM, and aging time also listed. Its funny often find commercial brewers will give their beers weeks while home brewers give months… although in most cases i think the quality remains fine.
