COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This year’s “First Brewed” is a take on a Belgian-style strong golden ale: a base-malt grist (Maris Otter, Pils, Munich, Sour) buttressed by a mammoth addition of Japanese korizato sugar that yields a strong 17.3 Plato wort; a moderate hopping regimen (30 IBU) that is conducted in five separate additions and combines nine different hop varieties (Motueka, Tradition, Perle, Vanguard, Glacier, Sterling, Hersbrucker, Saaz, Tettnanger); warm fermentation with our house Belgian ale yeast; and secondary fermentation and natural carbonation in package with the same Belgian ale strain. 2012 promises great things; Hatsujozo 2012 Strong Belgian Gold is the first it will deliver!

amber golden color. Kinda watery, but well hidden for 8.5% abv. Bready nose with some apples. Nice, but not overly complex.

Draught at Bashamichi. Malty, grainy nose, peppery, grassy hops. Nice hop nose. Malty, semi-sweet flavor, dry enough, and very hoppy. Yeast not doing so much. Peach, orange. Good stuff. I like the hops, which work differently to a traditional Belgian gold, but very well. Like a clean hoppy tripel.
