Bright reddish mahogany color. Rich, fruity, floral aromas and flavors of caramelized figs and orange, chocolate, and fruit cake with a satiny, bright, spritzy, off-dry medium body and a warming, interesting, medium-length finish displaying notes of spiced bananas and yams, watercress, and honeyed nuts finish. A nicely layered and appetizing amber ale.

Belgian Style Amber Ale

Belgian style amber ales are amber in color and range in alcohol from 6-8%. This is not a classic style but represents various beers of similar Belgian theme. These beers are fruity and moderately strong with a classic Belgian yeast character. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Brewery Ommegang Rare VOS, Unibroue Maudite and New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale.
