Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brainless Belgian-Style Golden Ale is has a rich and complex malt flavor balanced with a little bit of spicy noble hops and strong influences of fermentation esters from the Belgian yeast used. Various Belgian like Rock Candies, hops and grains are employed to express variations within the style. Deceivingly drinkable, some liken theses ales to Devil sneaking up on you, so consume responsibly.

22oz bottle, ABV on label states 8.8%

A: nice golden-yellow color, clear, with good frothy head
S: reminiscent of a Belgian golden ale or tripel with yeastiness and malt, medium nose, alcohol noticeable, fruity
T: didn't know what to expect but surprisingly true-to-type, reminded me a bit more of a tripel due to alcohol which was definitely in the taste, heat from EtOH is there, somewhat cloying too
M: creamy probably from body and cloying
O: a good beer
