Espiga Blond Ale

Wow! What a blond! This is like no other, with big citrus fruits and hops without the bitterness of an IPA. By far the best Blond Ale we've tasted in a bottle. 

This is pale and golden in color, translucent, with a lingering white head. Its intense, clear, fruity aroma is particularly striking for its notes of citric and sour tropical fruits, hints of white grape together with notes of watermelon. It is fresh on the palate, with undertones of exotic fruits. Integrated carbonation with a slightly bitter farewell, inviting further tasting.

Pairing:
Hors d’oeuvres, seafood, fruit salads, pizza, spicy dishes, hamburgers, white fish, olives
