#BeerOfTheWeek: Anchor Brewing’s Blood Orange Blonde™
Summer is right around the corner and seasonal summer beers are beginning to pop up all over the place. But, why get attached to a seasonal ale when you can enjoy the taste of summer with a year-round rarity? Introducing Anchor Brewery’s “Blood Orange Blonde,” a distinctively refreshing craft-brew inspired by the blood orange. Like the fruit, the ale is rich in aroma and deep crimson in color–all the while, enjoy the tangy-sweet juiciness that one expect when biting into a blood orange.
The citrus aroma comes courtesy of the brewing process which includes California orange peels added to the brewkettle. Don’t worry, it doesn’t stop there! During secondary fermentation, blood oranges are added to give a succulent complexity to the mild hop bitterness. In the end, you can enjoy a long, dry finish.
