Hazy medium brown color.

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.
