Style | ABV
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.

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.

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.

Serving type: on-tap

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

Tried on tap at WhipIn, 7 Aug 2010. This was the One.2 version with a different type/source of honey. Served in a ~8 oz. glass.

Clear warm coppery brown in color. Lightly carbonated. Aroma is sweet and lightly spicy with a woody component, maybe mesquite. Fairly sweet to start, vanilla and ethanol. A touch syrupy. Warming from the middle into the finish and aftertaste. Becomes a bit grapey/raisiny in the finish. Medium body. Warming lingering ethanol.

Had this at the (512) first anniversary party and would be hard pressed to tell the differences between the two.

3.53/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass at Red’s Porch

Appearance: Amber orange with a white head that quickly fades into a thin lacing.

Aroma: Fruity esters dominate, banana, citrus, peach, and alcohol.

Taste: honestly a little boozy, I wasn’t expecting it to be like that. The fruit flavors from the yeast are a little hidden behind the alcohol taste, which is somewhat disappointing. Make no mistake; you can still taste the obvious Belgian yeast flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and kind of syrupy, which surprised. I think the combination of alcohol flavors and a syrupy feel made it at little difficult to drink.

Overall: Glad I got to try it, but I think (512) still needs a little work practicing Belgian style beers.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours a clear and dark amber red/brown color. A two finger beige head forms with good retention. Some patchy lace is left behind.
S: Really sweet malt up front. Sweet toffee and candy like aromas. Lightly toasted with some dark fruity aromas. Light yeast as well. Strong alcohol lingers.
T: Follows the nose. Really sweet up front. Actually to much cloying sweetness. Toffee and candy like sweetness. Some fruity flavors of cherry as well. Light yeast with some alcohol in the finish.
M/D: A medium body with some prickly carbonation. A little rough around the edges. There is plenty of alcohol that makes this a slow sipper. One is enough.

This is a one and done for me. Not bad at all, just to sweet and to much alcohol. Worth a try, but 512 has much better beers.
