Gold color. Spicy, attractive aromas and flavors of peach-apple custard tart, toasted pretzel bread, arugula and kale with a lemon-pepper vinaigrette, and herbs de provence with lavender with a satiny, bright, effervescent, dryish medium body and a warming, layered, medium-long finish with notes of salty butter roasted corn and pepper finish. A supple and well balanced Belgian strong ale with appetizing savoriness.

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.
