The last release currently planned in our Moveable Yeast series is the Bitter Belgian - Elissa IPA fermented with a Belgian yeast strain as opposed to our house Saint Arnold ale yeast. The result is a much fruitier beer with a variety of interesting notes that work quite well with all the Cascade hops used to brew Elissa. Bitter Belgian will be available on draft only. Although it is being released on February 9, it will only be sporadically available on that date. Many pubs and restaurants will be putting it on over following couple of weeks. In addition, some accounts will wait to tap their kegs until they have another special event planned.

Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of citrus hops dominates, yeasty, and bready. Clove, light malt, Belgain yeast, and a citrusy bitter. Medium body with good carbonation. Not one of my favorite styles but an ok beer.
