Belgian Amber Ale
Do you like New Belgium Brewing's Fat Tire Ale A Belgian-inspired ale that was invented in the United States.  Without the heavier hop bitterness and flavor that dominate so many other microbrewed amber ales, this recipe emphasizes the malt character of the style.  The beer's smooth flavor is built around caramelized and toasted malt character, with a moderate hop presence and medium-full body.

Style: Belgian-Style Amber Ale
ABV: 5.5%
Color: Amber

Belgian Dubbel
There is a lot of variation in Belgian and Belgian-style Trappist ales.  Our Belgian Dubbel recipe is brown in color, and moderate in alcohol strength. This recipe is all about malt - lots of malt flavor and aroma with a touch of cognac on the palate from the addition of imported Belgian candi sugar (beet sugar) and raw kosher honey. There is little or no hop bitterness, and no hop aroma. This beer is good to drink right away, but it also ages very nicely into a surprisingly mellow beverage.

Style: Belgian Dark Trappist Ale
ABV: 6.1%
Color: Brown

Belgian Triple
There's a lot of variation in the Trappist style ales.  Our Belgian Trippel is relatively pale in color, has a strong bread-like maltiness, and it's stronger in alcohol.  No lactic acid bacteria are during fermentation, so there is no acidic sourness in the flavor profile.  Made with continental European hops, a combination of German and Belgian barley malts and Belgian candi sugar (beet sugar.)  Trippel should be bottle aged for at least 3-6 weeks, but will continue to improve for many months.

Style: Belgian Golden Trappist Ale
ABV: 7.4%
Color: Deep Golden

Belgian Quad
This is the strongest of the Trappist-style ales.  This is a beer that will hold up to many years of aging, and will definitely improve during its first year in the bottle.  Those choosing to keg this beer should set their system for a moderately low carbonation level, since the head-retention character of this beer is phenomenal!  With twice as much malt as a normal-strength beer, this is an extremely full-bodied, malty beer that's brewed with a combination of toasted, crystal, and de-husked roasted malts, and balanced with classic European hops.

Style: Belgian Dark Trappist Ale
ABV: 9.6%
Color: Brown

Belgian Imperial Pale Ale
Do you like Flying Dog Brewery's Raging Bitch Ale?  This is a very strong Imperial-style IPA with a unique Belgian twist.  The style originated in America, and just like the Flying Dog original, we use American malts and hops.  This recipe's Belgian influence is derived from the yeast.  Hoppy but not as intensely bitter as some other Imperial pale ales, with plenty of citrusy hops from the northwestern US added for flavor and aroma.

Style: Belgian-Style Imperial Pale Ale
ABV: 8.3%
Color: Amber

Lambic (Cherry)
This is truly a connoisseur's beer.  It has tons of fruit flavor and aroma, with a tart sourness that comes from the presence of lactic acid bacteria in the fermentation.  The recipe includes over 6 pounds of sterile, seedless cherries, which saves you lots of time compared to removing seeds and crushing the fruit yourself. There's also 4 ounces of cherry flavoring, pectic enzyme, Belgian candi (beet) sugar, and a special live yeast culture with three strains of wild lambic bacteria. If you keg your beer, you can sweeten your Lambic just before force carbonation, and the results will be in the style of Lindemans lambic beers. If you use natural bottle conditioning, which includes mini-kegs or party pigs, the result will be a dry tart flavor similar to Liefmans lambic beers.

Style: Belgian Fruit-style Lambic
ABV: 6.7%

Saison (amber)
Saison (French, "season," ) is a pale ale that is highly carbonated, fruity, spicy, and often bottle conditioned. It was historically brewed with low alcohol levels, but modern productions of the style have moderate to high levels of alcohol. The addition of Carafa and CaraBohemian malts provide the color and body to this summertime favorite.
