Most Belgian beers tend to be more like wines in alcoholic heft and complication of flavor. It’s nice to see a Belgian style which does not want to knock me over, and I can enjoy a few with friends, or pair with a meal. I enjoyed this beer. It has a great fruity flavor from the yeast and a nice spicy bite from the German hops. It is subtle enough that it complements almost any meal, but I noticed the best return with salty fried foods like calamari or onion rings. The fruit and the hops really come to the fore with that tasting, go figure.
I like beer, and am trying to expand my knowledge of it. I have been homebrewing all grain for a little over a year, so I think I approach beer with a little bit of knowledge and a lot of awe. View all posts by brendan
