Bell’s ‘Venus: The Bringer of Peace’ Beer Review

Brewed by Bell’s Brewery

Style: American Blonde Ale

7.50% ABV

Serve at 48-50°

Availability: brewed once

Enjoyed from a Bell’s pint glass

A: Pours a clear, golden body with half a finger of fizzy white bubbles. Not unusually impressive, but there is moderate lacing.

S: Bready, vanilla, candied fruit, cloves, citrus; very sweet in the nose.

T: Strange, but enjoyable. Crisp, sour, and bright with huge fruit notes. Musty, floral, bursts of sour apricots, honey, cardamom, vanilla, orange. The vanilla is balanced very well, otherwise I think the apricot might have been a bit much.

M: Strangely heavy bodied for the style/ingredients. Contains a sour mouthfeel from the apricots that lends itself to the bright, acidic profile. All in all, very pleasant if you’re only having one of these per session.

O: Not bad at all. Maybe not what I was expecting, but a solid specialty beer from Bell’s. I don’t think I could drink more than one per sitting, but the crisp tartness goes a long way. Worth a try if you’re hopped out or looking for something different.
