Evil Twin Joey Pepper
Evil Twin Joey Pepper is a Belgian Pale Ale that is actually a collaboration with Sante Adairius Rustic Ales. This is easily one of the boldest Belgian Pale Ale I’ve had. I was expecting something more peppery in the sense of black pepper, but the spices in this are not that specific. […]

Ommegang Hop House
Ommegang Hop House is a Belgian Pale Ale. This is a tasty new addition to the Ommegang family of beers. First thing I notice is the nice active carbonation and light golden color. The taste is bready, slightly grainy, and hoppy with lots of bitterness on the finish. The Belgian yeast […]

Affligem Blond
Affligem Blond is a Belgian Pale Ale. I’m surprised by the 7% ABV on this, about as high as you can go before it becomes a “Strong” Pale Ale. Not exactly sessionable but well worth the price of admission! This is really light and easy to drink, but still has a […]

Stillwater Artisanal Beer Table Table Beer 2012
Stillwater Artisanal Beer Table Table Beer is a Belgian style Pale Ale. Thanks to Kristian for hooking me up with a bottle of this! Not the kind of beer I would think to age, but I have to say it seems the 2012 vintage has held up very well. The beer […]

The Lost Abbey Saint’s Devotion
The Lost Abbey Saint’s Devotion is a Belgian Pale Ale, which is their Devotion Ale bottle conditioned with brettanomyces. This is the 2013 Vintage coming in at a clever 6.66% ABV. I am noticing the brett right away with a nice bit of mild funkiness and some mild peppery spiciness. The […]

Westbrook Brett & No Mices
Westbrook Brett & No Mices is a Belgain Style Pale Ale brewed with Brettanomyces.  It is then aged in red wine barrels for 10 months. A hybrid Belgian and American Wild Ale, the beer is funky and slightly sour/tart to start. I wouldn’t call this a true sour, but you get […]

Green Flash Rayon Vert
Green Flash Rayon Vert is a Belgian-style Pale Ale. This poured with a giant fluffy head, gonna have to wait for this to settle down… OK we’re ready now, light sweet fruit is mixing with some bolder citrus, the floral hops are plentiful but do not dominate. Both the fresh ale […]

Russian River Redemption
Russian River Redemption is a Belgian Pale Ale. This beer is light and crisp with a touch of grain and a very dry finish. Not a lot going on here, this is simply an easy drinking Belgian Pale. It’s quite good but seems like a pretty pedestrian offering from Russian River. […]

Bavik Petrus Blond Ale
Bavik Petrus Blond Ale is a Belgian Pale Ale. Massive chunks of sediment sit suspended in time in my glass. There were no pouring instructions but I will have to remember to pour a little more gently next time. Light and sweet malts fade into a slightly sour finish. There is […]
