Santa Teresa Belgian Enkel is on tap now. The monks too enjoy a fine ale with a meal. This 5.2% abv ale uses noble hops and a yeast strain from the Trappist monestary, Westmalle.

At 4 am each morning steam billows from the Brouwerij der Trappisten van Westmalle, the trappist monastery in Westamlle Belgium. The brewery helps fund the abbey and other charitable causes. Monks have been brewing for centuries, and believe a fulfilled life requires your hands never be idles and always be providing. The monks enjoy enkels, or singles, with their dinner. A much lower ABV helps cognitive thoughts. These beers are extremely rare to find, even in Belgium, and we are very proud to represent this fine style.

Food pairing: chicken wings confit.

Golden amber pour with a slight white head at the brewpub. Slight Belgian nose and again in the taste. Nicely done but not a style I’m crazy about.

Nocturne (1302) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Tap at Magic Rock’s Rainbow Project launch. Hazy orange shade. Small white head. Notes of green apple, oranges, banana. Grassy and herbal notes always poking through. Creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good. Has a ring of Belgian authenticity but with just about enough of its own character.

juffage (136) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2015
On keg at Magic Rock Tap Rainbow Project 2015. Well made, but really just reminds me of a light/dry nondescript Belgian blond - seriously it tastes a lot like Palm. Nice frothy white head. Inviting, but mild. Light, lagery, dry. Hamster cage. Smells like a Belgian blond i.e. Brugge Zot, but flavour is much drier and almost lager-like. Pretty solid, though.

DMLINAZ (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2015 Very smooth, tasty, well-put-together Belgian. Solid consistency. Nice yeast, estery, slightly floral. Easy to drink, but also very present. So good that I enjoyed two at the brewery, and several friends who drank it had high praise.

Decent Belgian with creamy finish. Light on the malt. Good lunch beer but probably not stand alone.

Slightly metallic aftertaste. Very smooth though, and a wonderful sourdough mouthfeel. Not as strong as a lot of Belgian style beers, but a good pair for many meals. Great golden shine.
