COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pride is the excessive belief in one’s own abilities and achievements. PRIDE Belgian-style Strong Pale Ale is the smart, sexy, strong ’golden child’ of the series. Aged in chardonnay oak barrels and infused with Brettanomyces, Pride has much, much, too much to boast about. PRIDE...It really isn’t you...it’s ME.

brokensail (15754) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 15, 2010
A: A gush of beer and foam as the cap is popped, but a quick pour into the glass shows a cloudy golden orange/amber with a huge white head. S: Tons of brett in the form of an earthy funkiness which is quite pleasing along with the bright, lemony acidity. A bit of oak and grass to keep things nice and "green". T: The flavor is just as good as I had hoped: a really clean and bright acidity with some lemon and green apple. The funk provides a nice earthy and light bitter note, and some mild oak. M: The body is toward the light side with a bounty of carbonation that pricks the tongue. D: One of the best of the Sins beers and even of the Midnight Sun offerings I’ve had. Just delicious.

Another rare beauty pulled out of his cellar by JW77. Damn! Hazy gold/yellow pour. Big head. Crazy funky aroma. Wood, vanilla, golden raisins, brett and sourness. Flavor is dry and funky. Some lemony notes lead to old oaky flavors. Unique and very interesting beer.
