156/1430) Petrus Aged Ale Grand Reserve by Banik Brewery of Belgium:  **;  7.3%;  a golden blonde ale matured in excess of twenty months in oak;  tart, cidery, winey nose; very tart, dry, cidery;  basically this a sour, though the label does not explicitly say so;

157/1431) Home:  Cause and Effect Blonde by Nickel Brook of Ontario:  **;  4.7%, 19 ibu;  "a miracle of science", brewed with four malts and three hops;  pours a clear blonde; nose is a balanced blend of malt and hops;  hops win out in the taste with more presence in the finish and after taste than the ibu figure would suggest;
