COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Part of the moveable yeast series. The bitter belgian was made more delicious by the fact that it is very limited. woody, minimal head, medium bitterness, lively,

2.20.2012 - Houston, TX On Tap Very interesting and unique from other St. Arnold’s beers. Distinct bitter, almost sour quality that is well-balanced with the Belgian style backing it. Worth you time!

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.
