A-BIG-ALE is the first canned Belgian brew from Sixpoint... a wholly sanctified and indubitably bonafide high gravity elixir. Traditional Belgian yeast and candi sugars ensure a zealous fermentation, classic dark fruit flavors and a big ABV. Were not religious about beer styles though, so we dosed this sucker with loads of American hops.

Hazy orange amber no head; very sweet aroma hinting of caramel ; flavor is rich malt blended with Belgian sugars, yeastiness, hoppy dryness ; feels medium with nice foamy fizz; finishes dry yet sweet.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2016
Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish.

Im so torn on this beer. On the one hand, its a perfectly good pseudo-IPA with some general hop aroma and bitterness. On the other hand, it tastes absolutely nothing whatsoever like a Belgian double, which is how its billed on the packaging. Good if you like hops, disappointing if youre looking for an Abbey ale!

Had a sample me over at Dimitris Hooker Haus in Kemah .. . Pours a dark hazy yellow Amber .. Nice simple foam .. . Belgian yeast, medicine are the main players .. Solid mouth, depressing finish .. Didnt do it for me, but this leg has been on the wall for a few months so maybe that is playing a part .. . I get to cut out stickers at work today!

Davros (3071) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2015
Pours vibrant amber with a large head. Nose shows spicy Belgian phenols, pear and apples, some soft floral hop notes and sweet clean malt. Flavours are clean too but with some booze and Belgian yeast notes showing.

Shark_Pants (722) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2015
Clear amber red with medium sudsy off-white head. The nose is also fairly un-belgian - grapefruit citrus, caramel malt, some tropical fruits. The hops dominate, with the belgian yeast phenols and esters lacking. The taste is very IPA-like - the citrus and tropical fruits and piney hop bitterness are front and centre, backed up by a strong malt backbone, slight banana. Medium bodied. Way off style as a belgian ale but acceptable as an IPA.

A good malty ale with good bitterness but without a real Belgian character.

glennmastrange (2823) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Can. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy pine for the hops, light dough and soap for the yeast with date in the background. Head is small, fizzy, light beige with some slippery lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear copper. Palate is moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a slightly dry finish. A Belgian Strong Ale? Okay, maybe, along with a lot of American Pale Ale influence.
