The second beer in our Pro-Am series is an extremely refreshing and tasty Belgian Pale Ale. This beer starts with an intriguing, complex bouquet of clove, banana, bubblegum and spicy esters. Soft, sweet flavors of doughy malt, vanilla and pear come in to balance the yeast notes. A nice, crisp bitterness from the German Saphir hops help to round out thus well-balanced brew. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Traditional Belgian "Single" or "Table" beers are meant to be served as everyday sessionable beer often enjoyed at meals. Our version was a collaborative effort between the Hangar 24 Brewing Staff and homebrewer Scott Gaastra. Scott’s original recipe beat out 245 other entries to win our 2nd Annual Homebrew Competition in May 2011. Scott then helped our staff to recreate his beer on our brewing system. This beer will be entered into the 2011 GABF Pro-Am Competition.

My favorite of a flight of Hangar brews including Pugachev. Light and effervescent. Great vanilla and citrus notes. The Belgian yeast is nicely restrained. Some other fruit notes too.

Wow. This is a nice, spicy saison I’d say. Some funky spices. This is very good, yet easy-drinking Belgian. Got the 30th bday pary started!

Clear dark yellow with a creamy white head. Nice floral sweet spice and citrus aroma. Tastes of straw and citrus bread with a semi dry orange flavored finish.
