Belgian Golden Strong Ale

Description:

This beer (my 1st attempt at a Belgian) turned out a deep clean crimson, with a rich body reminicant of blackberries, the smell was that of a strong belgian ale, with note of dark berries. The flavor flows boldly over your taste bubs, but leaves within 7-11 seconds after giving you a variety of complex flavor transitions. The only thing that stands out a bit much is the alcohol.
