Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Oakenator on 07-13-2013

When most folks thing of Cape May they imagine Victorian Inns and parasols. Forget all that. Devil's Reach is a narrow passageway in Cape May Harbor and is a fitting name for this beer. Why you ask? The Devil's Reach is smooth and complex. It glides like a shark through the water and will swallow you whole. At 8.4% ABV, this Belgian is a beast.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #87 (Apr 2014):

Spicy, Warming, Fruity

From the southern tip of New Jersey comes a beast of a Belgian inspired Strong Ale. Thoughts of ripe pears and green peppercorns come to mind. Very Belgian-esque from spice and alcohol to fruit and rustic, it could be seen as a Saison though we’d be splitting hairs and it stands tall enough within its style.

- On tap. shaker pint.

A: Golden orange coloring, thin covering, no carbonation with a quickly retreating head.

T: Tropical fruitiness on the nose, fresh pineapple, candy sugar, and a bit of orange-apple.

T: Flavor was fruity, tropical, pineapple-orange, sweet malt based. Yeasty applesauce, sweet candi sugar and spicy belgian hops.

M: Softly carbonated, good body per style.

O: Overall good drinkability, sweet and fruity. A beast that drinks like a lamb, sharp clarity of flavor and very smooth. (509 characters)

Bottle at the Continental in Atlantic City, NJ. Wow. Can't believe they're making this in Rio Grande! Great opaque look and a pure Belgian taste. Would absolutely seek this out again. (183 characters)
