COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Roman name for the Low Countriesis a marriage of the best in American and Belgian brewing traditions. Belgian pilsner malt, a generous amount of American and European hops and a unique Belgian yeast strain combine to give Belgica big notes of citrus and spice, creating a lively concoction perfect for spring in the Rockiesor the Ardennes. 7.2% ABV.

First released as Belgian IPA:
Just for fun, the brewers took our Titan, a hop forward American IPA and introduced a Belgian yeast strain to it. The result is unique Belgian-style ale with lots of fruity esters, a citrus hop flavor and nice hop bitterness thats surprisingly smooth. 7.5% alcohol by volume.

bottle.... 1 week old from bottling date... pours a light golden with a nice white head. Belgian yeast and light fruit aromas dominate while the hops take a back seat. medium body with the citrus hop notes coming forward.... there is spice, banana, yeast and deep malts over the top... nice finish with a good amount of bitterness balanced by the fruit esters and Belgian yeast qualities.

A yeast aroma that has a nuanced aroma. I promise you I almost smell a meat-like aroma; pastrami? Then I smell the fruit and yeast aroma. It is very weird. Maybe my mind is playing tricks on me. I am not complaining about the aroma, it is actually decent. I am disappointed that the beer doesnt have any hop aroma mixed in. Fairly transparent; the beer has a decent apperance. Hops play a role in the flavor, and develop further in the end, but the beer has that weird yeast taste to it during the start. Very smooth beer. Overall, a decent beer with some awkward aromas and flavors.

On tap at GD tasting room. I didn’t realize this originated with Titan. The hops are nicely balanced by the esters and fruitiness.
