On a beach of pale beers, this buff Belgian goes for the gold. Our Golden Strong Ale brings the muscle with a 6.2% ABV, but remains refreshing and drinkable. Perfect for fans of Duvel®, this strong ale flexes fruity, spicy notes from the specialty Belgian yeast, while crisp malt and clean hop flavors round out this well-built beer.
WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
This 5-gallon recipe kit includes all the ingredients to brew this buff Belgian:
- 7.5 lb Dry Malt Extract
- Saaz (Bittering, Flavoring) Hop Packet
- Steeping Grains
- Yeast Packet
- Grain Steeping Bag
We keep this on hand at all times. Loved by our adult kids and their friends. Pairs well with Thai food and grilled food. Light and refreshing but watch out for the ABV.
This is I think the 3rd time I've brewed this, but it has been about 3 yrs or so. Fermented for a total of 3 wks. Added a lil extra yeast to the bottling bucket help with the bottle conditioning. After 3 weeks still not exactly where I want the carbonation, but it's getting there. Will cellar for the next 2 months and see where we're at taste wise, right now a lil sweet, next time I may add all the hops at the bittering stage, but we'll see how it tastes in a few months. Off to check on my Belgian Dubbel. Cheers
I enjoyed it and the brewing instructions were clear and the brew came out tasting similar to other strong ales. I will be getting another kit after this one is gone.
My third batch. Really like this beer.
I decided to try this beer out of curiosity just to see how good it is. It is not for me despite higher alcohol content and the taste is not what I would consider "great". It's just ok to me but not at the point where I would throw out the entire batch of beer. My go-to is the OG Orange and thought this would be similar to a summer beer like Leininkeugel, but it is not the same.
