BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Free Will Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States | website

Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.60%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
This Belgian golden strong is a deceptively powerful version of the style. An estery aroma with subtle notes of vanilla leads to a malty flavor profile complimented by notes of pear and apricot supported by a surprisingly complex tanic structure from the barrels, and ends with a surprisingly crisp finish. Pair this beer with Sushi or mussels for a real Belgian experience.

This was a delicious bourbon tasting Belgian strong ale. It's strong citrus/bourbon flavor gives this a very favorable and addictive profile. I especially enjoyed the smoothness of this beer. For almost 9% alcohol, the balance is quite nice and easily drinkable. I highly recommend you try it!

served on tap at the brewery

light golden in color, not much head. definitely pick up the fruity flavors in the aroma. not sure there is much from the bourbon barrel. but good flavor. light drinking for a strong beer.

Deceptively powerful is right. this one will creep up on you then smack you in the head...in a good way. Going back for more soon.
