RateBeer.com -- Correct Baird Momiji Imperial Belgian Red AleBaird Momiji Imperial Belgian Red Ale


Description:
If the genius of British brewing is full flavor in low-alcohol session-able ales, the brilliance of Belgian brewing lies in powerful high-alcohol beers that manage yet to be bright and effervescent. This is exactly what Momiji Imperial Belgian Red Ale manages to be. It is sprightly potent. One key to achieving strength in beer without heaviness is to substitute a portion of the malt grist with a highly ferment-able sugar. This is precisely what we have done with Momiji Imperial Belgian Red Ale adding Japanese akato (red) sugar to our kettle boil in place of 15% of the mash malt. A small portion of rye malt in the grist serves to accentuate the spicy character imparted by fermentation with our Belgian yeast strain. The hopping is bold and complex we combine six varieties (Galena, Citra, Wakatu, Tradition, East Kent Golding, Fuggle) in the kettle and re-introduce all of them to the beer post fermentation in a dry-hopping addition.
