COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops abound in this triple Belgian ale, brewed with three times the normal amount of pilsner-malt to build on plenty of raw rich material, and an 'over the edge' amount of Hallertau and Aurora hops. Just to make it perfect with a great hoppy nose, a full round complex mouth-feel and a lingering beautiful hoppy aftertaste, in perfect balance with the glow of the 9.5 % alcohol by volume. Refermented in the keg (keg conditioned) to infuse the softness and easy drinkability of the natural carbonation. Brewery Van Steenberge craftsmanship by excellence!

House beer for Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh.

Alengrin (2095) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
Commissioned by an American customer since 2008, an IPA-ish Belgian ale with off-white, sticky, thick head and golden blonde, slightly misty robe. Aroma of citrus peel, vanilla, peach, chamomille, flowers, green hops. Soft malty taste with restrained citrus freshness, powerful leafy and grassy, long, complex, green hop bitterness in the end, some warming alcohol. See, Van Steenberge is capable of making really interesting beers after all! Why don’t they put this kind of quality on the Belgian market?

7/23/2014: Over The Edge Belgian IPA... Turbid golden color with a head of thick white foam. This beer seems pretty typical and meh. It’s got all the typical Belgian esters, spice, and yeast with plenty of alcohol (tastes like a bit too much), but it’s just not existing. I also found it to be too sweet for the amount of doughiness in the flavor. There is hoppiness, but it’s fairly nondescript. I don’t really want subtle hops in an IPA. Anyway, this beer was also just too chewy and heavy on the tongue. Maybe describing this as a Belgian Tripel would have been better, but it was just too dirty, heavy, and muddled for that. Overall, it is probably best enjoyed by using it to cook the mussels I had for dinner there. Draught at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse in Pittsburgh, PA. Rating #49 for this beer.

baraciisch (1920) - USA - OCT 8, 2013
Rated from beer log during 2009 Belgium trip... Gentle hop aroma, not over the top like American IPAs, yellow orange in color... Sweet like a typical Belgian, but not overpowering, like a trippel but more bitter. The way an American ipa would be but better balanced... Candi sugar sweetness definitely makes it unique... A hopped up trippel, very good, nice bitter palate... Highly recommended ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at sharp edge creek house. Pours golden with a thin white head with some yeastiness on the nose. Some pear and grape notes on the tongue with a slight hoppiness on the finish. Solid but not the best example of style.

Koelschtrinker (10836) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Hopfig-säuerlicher Geruch. Hopfiger vollmundiger Antrunk, angenehm bitter. Der Hopfen bleibt sehr trocken, erst spät bildet sich eine wenig fruchtige Note, etwas nach Apfelsine. IM Abgang ebenfalls sehr hopfig, harmonisch. 12/12/11/11//11
