Brouwerij Kees - Blushing Blond

Very busy Monday at the packing table before putting some blogs in he website, but I had no idea what to go for in the beer department tonight. Then, off in the corner, I saw a psychedelic pink and purple can that promised peaches and fruits from a Dutch brewery if never heard of...so why not try it.

As I cracked open the can aboard the train in a fairly confident manner (for once), a burst of fruity and gosey like flavours popped out at me. The following taste packed one hell of a malty punch which nearly took my head off, then some really nice peachy and zesty sensations dropped in right at the end. It might be a tiny bit too malty for me, but I can't complain about how packed the beer is with every taste. Not quite as peachy as i thought it'd be, being more down the general fruity direction, however it's a light fresh drink that really gives some pop. Not my favourite type of beer in this example, but I'd love to try some more from this brewery as you can tell the quality.

Cheers everyone!

Fresh and citrusy smells fire out after the can opening, just what I needed. First swig doesn't have that hoppy punch you may expect from an IPA, but a creaminess contains those flavours and delivers them in a different way. The punchyness is there with that lactose mouthfeel that coats the tongue really nicely, which gives a smooth delivery of those beautifully balanced ingredients.

First smell is a solid stout one of coffee with a sweet background. The following swig delivers that beautiful sweetness that is certainly reminiscent of smooth syrup over pancakes, before that coffee taste comes in. Have to say that the more I hit it back, the more I liked it, as the balance of coffee and sugary syrup came into play.

First smell just tells you I'm an IPA with full fruity flavours bulking under the snout. The following swig just gives you an electric shock of powerful hops that are a real eye opener, then straight behind is that thick mouthfeel giving you tropical flavour. Each swig after packs a punch, but a more subtle peachy tone starts coming through to end the taste.
