COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Intensely fruity and complex Belgian-stlye ale. This special beer is brewing art from start to finish. A full mash tun of malted barley is required to reach the high gravity required for this style, along with a high percentage of a special classic Belgian-style malt. Noble hops are added sparingly to the kettle. During the long boil special kettle sugars are added in the Belgian tradition which lend unique flavors in the fermenter. A classic Belgian yeast strain is pitched and the long fermentation is monitored closely as the flavors develop. The beer is then chilled and aged before being kegged and bottled.

This ale poured a cloudy dark gold with a thin white head. The aroma was nice and bready as it should be. Silky thick mouth feel, The flavor was sweet and a bit cloying. Overall, a well done Belgian.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2011 Pours a clear brown color with moderately light carbonation and medium head. Initial taste is lots of plum, and a touch of fig and raisin, maybe a little clove. Fairly complex, interesting, and a beer that I enjoy through the entire bottle. Finishes with a nice tanginess on the back of the tongue that I like about Belgian ales. Warm alcohol is noticeable, but nice. This is cellar worthy for sure. I think it could become quite interesting over time.

KyotoLefty (6139) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle, about 1 year old. Soft mellow malt aroma with honey, stewed peaches and apples, alcohol, and a touch of miso and meat pie! Deep amber color with lace. Big fruit flavor, stewed, with peaches, ginger, orange, alcohol. Like fruit stewed in brandy. Nicely rounded complexity. Tasty though a bit too sweet and boozy.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of scrizzz. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Sweet overripe fruit, yeast and phenols in the nose. Solid body, carbonation is a little low, overripe fruit, brown sugar, yeast and phenols. The heavy alcohol is surprisingly well hidden. Big Belgians just don’t really do it for me anymore. 220611
