This is a delightfully drinkable Belgian-style ale with a big kick of American hops. A Belgian yeast strain, Bastogne, was used to brew this beer giving it a fruity/spicy character. A generous dose of hops ? including Galaxy, Simcoe, Chinook, and an addition of whole Cascade hops ? yields a powerful hop nose and flavor. The finish is sharp and satisfying. It?s a real winner.
