Hazy reddish mahogany color. Complex aromas of salami, balsamic vinaigrette, sun dried tomato, vanilla wafers, and arugula with a satiny, bright, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, brisk sourdough bread bowl and mace finish. A solid ale for pub pairings.

Belgian Style Strong Ale

Belgian style strong ales range in color from medium to dark brown and in alcohol from 8-11%. These beers typically have a fruity Belgian yeast character and a degree of sweetness coupled with a viscous mouthfeel. This category also includes Belgian style quadruples. Better examples of this style strike a seamless balance between rich, sweet malt flavors, alcohol and complex Belgian yeast flavors ranging from banana to dark fruit. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Dogfish Head Raison D’Etre, Brouwerij Bosteels Pauwel Kwak, La Trappe Quadrupel and Brasserie Dubuisson Freres Scaldis.
