Recently had a pint at the brewery. This is a one-off. They are trying a variety of beers with their belgian yeast strain.

I didn't take notes on this one, so I'm going off of memory and just leaving a brief review. The beligan yeast helped to balance the hop bitterness and make this beer a little more sessionable. It was quite good, but didn't seem to make a huge difference.

I enjoyed the twist by using the belgian yeast. It's good to see Great Divide make some special beers only available at the brewery.

Again, another not so detailed review to get this one in the database.

This is Old Ruffian brewed with a Belgian yeast strain. You get all the beauty of the Ruffian with a nice Belgian funk. The tap hanlde just said "Belgian Barley Wine"

The yeast actually does a great job of balancing the super hoppiness of the Old Ruffian. It really brings out the maltiness of this beer and makes it a touch sweet.

I really wanted a second pint of this beer, but I knew it might be a short night if I dove in. Belgian yeast and barley wines are two of my favorites. Get it while you can if they still have it.
