The concept here is a strong, golden ale that enjoys a clean, crisp and easy smoothness while still packing a powerful flavor and alcohol punch. The brewing inspiration is very Belgian -- we use only base malts and unmalted wheat, we jack up the gravity - to 1.074 with lots of sugar - sudakito, keep the hop BUs at a reasonable level - 35, and accentuate aroma by dry-hopping with earthy, herbal hop varieties - Santiam and Glacier. The only thing Belgian we dont do is ferment with a phenolic-producing Belgian yeast strain - we use our house ale yeast instead. The result, we think, is a beer that combines supreme drinkability with quiet audacity.

Bottle shared, thanks Will. Mostly yellow apples with a grainy base, not much else, sweet finish. Meh, not sure using a non-belgian yeast made sense there, very average and simple for such an abv.

2015 re-release shared at a tasting. Sweet candy sugar nose with some bread-like malt character. Taste is pretty similar. Medium to medium-heavy body with average carbonation. Sweet finish. Pretty one-dimensional.

This beer was brewed again on the occasion commemoration of the 15-year anniversary of the Numazu Fishmarket Taproom, released in early 2016. Pours light pale, bit of foam. Aroma has some bread and bit of Belgian dubbed candysugar character. Brewed skilfully in the Belgian strong ale style, although apparently without Belgian yeast. Taste is clean, has some bitterness and sweetness from the malts. Malty and refreshing.

2010 vintage, re-brew at Hashigo Zake. Pours cloudy golden, white head. Light citrus nose, malty sweetness. Pretty subdued.
Nothing Belgian about the flavour, dominated by mandarin sweetness with a light citric bitterness. A great quaffer, at 8%...

Light amber color. Strawberries, oranges on top of a bready, somewhat malty nose. A bit of candy sugar is noticable in the mouth up front. Fairly, big sweet malty backbone with oranges and more bready character. Kinda reminded me of a triple that is heavy on bready notes with a touch of brandy. Interesting.
