Belgian Strong Pale Ale |  8.00% ABV

Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our first anniversary release is a Belgian-style strong ale that is amber in color, with a light to medium body. Subtle malt sweetness is balanced with noticeable hop flavor, light raisin and mildly spicy, cake-like flavors, and is finished with local wildflower honey aromas. Made with 80% Organic Malted Barley, Belgian Specialty grains, Forbidden Fruit yeast, domestic hops and Round Rock local wildflower honey, this beer is deceptively high in alcohol.

Had this on-tap at Flying Saucer. Sweet and fruity smelling. Maybe a little "spicy." Tasted similar, a bit light maybe, but definately reminiscent of a bunch of Belgian beers. Sweet and fruity with a bit of alcohol in the finish. Was probably a bit much to pair with the bratwurst sandwich I was eating. I would definately get this again if I lived in Austin and it was available, but alas.

Light yellow, nice foam retention. Yeasty esters on the nose. Nice carbonation. It’s light, sweet, and as befitting the style there’s no hop profile to speak of. I don’t notice the alcohol, although it weighs in at a hefty 9%? Honestly I was expecting more of a punch but still a solid brew.

Serving type: on-tap

Had at 512 open house on 6/19/2010 (premier of this year's release)
2010 2nd anniversary ale, belgian stong amber ale.
Tastes like a belgian strong saison, with a little bit of biscuity malt. Local wildflower honey added to boost alcohol. Good but not outstanding.

Thanks for sharing this one, Bobby.

A: The beer pours an amber color with a finger of white head.

S: The aroma starts off with lots of spice, especially coriander. There is some fruit in the form of banana and pears, perhaps a hint of apple. Light phenols of pepper along with bready malts and toffee sweetness.

T: Flavor of sweet malt, particularly toffee and bread. There is a lot of banana flavor, too, which gives a bit of a banana bread character. A noticeable peppery spice, and some other fruits, mostly pears.

M: The body is medium and the carbonation is also medium.

O: I've been interested in trying this one and thought it was actually pretty decent.

Serving type: growler
