COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Saranac Belgian Style Pale Ale is made with 2-raw barley and traditional european malts. Brewed with a perfect balance of malt and hops, this is a "sessionable" Belgian style ale. Look for a light amber color and a distinctive fruitiness from the Belgian yeast used in fermentation. Consumed by Belgians as an "everyday" beer, this style will quickly become your winter go-to!

The aroma was yeasty and a bit musty with notes of pepper and citrus. The flavor was dryish, yeasty, musty and had light notes of pepper, citrus and sulfur. Long dry, musty sulfur finish. Medium body. Not good at all- like most Belgian Pale Ales.
