Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Belgian Golden Strong Ale takes it name from the light pear flavors imparted by the Belgian yeast esters and the sinister nature of these styles of ales. Easy drinking from the Pilsener malt profile, this refreshing ale packs a punch with the additions of raw sugar to the boil kettle. A light hop flavor balances the alcohol, and melds perfectly with the pear flavors.

Nice, cloudy pale straw color with a decent head. Smells yeasty and spicy with faint hints of pear. Taste is smooth for the ABV, with a pleasant malt and Belgian yeast flavor. The pear from the name shows up in the finish with a surprisingly refined and bright taste. Overall a good take on the style with a nice twist.

A complex classic, this beer is a surprisingly impressive achievement from a moderately sized town in North Dakota, of all places. While the ESB is probably the best overall beer (and a great session ale), this Belgian style ale is very satisfying indeed. Good acidity; a cloudy green color. Compares well to some of the most famous Belgian style lambics and farmhouse ales.
