Pelican Le Pelican Brun

Brewed by Pelican Pub & Brewery
Pacific City, Oregon USA
7.5% Belgian Strong Ale | 55 Ratings | 20 IBU | Autumn Seasonal |
Full of intriguing malt flavors, Le Pélican Brun was conceived by the fertile imaginations of the team of Pelican brewers and inspired by the many brewing traditions of Belgium . With a deep reddish-brown color that suggests an Abbey-Style Dubbel, but a rich yeast-driven aroma reminiscent of a Saison, Le Pélican Brun serves up coffee-like, cocoa and caramel malt flavors with hints of earthiness and a captivating spiciness. Medium-bodied and highly drinkable, Le Pélican Brun is also rich, complex and satisfying.
