Belgian Pale Ale

Russian River Brewing/Sierra Nevada Brewing – Yvan the Great (Belgian Pale Ale)

  • 6.30% ABV
  • I am not gonna lie, I am pretty excited to try another Russian River. Not to say that their isnt room for Sierra to fuck it up but come on, Russian River! Annddd it isnt that good. It tastes kind of like coriander or something. I dont really know what the fuck coriander tastes like but I am guessing its like this. Or maybe beef jerky? I dont know, it isnt horrible but I dont want another.

Weyerbacher Brewing Company – Verboten (Belgian Pale Ale)

  • 5.90% ABV
  • Go figure, Weyerbacher made a decent Belgian pale ale. I generally don’t like Weyerbacher mostly because of their most horrible and foul Simcoe and I really dont like Belgian beers. I guess it two wrongs do make a right. And this is mostly a right… For the most part. It is a little muted compared to what I normally enjoy but that is to be expected, you know it being Belgian and all. Other than that it pretty freakin good. No noticeable hops and a definite if not overbearing sweetness that I am actually enjoying. For once…

DC Brau Brewing Company – The Citizen (Belgian Pale Ale)

  • 7.00% ABV
  • If you have read any of my reviews of Belgian beer you should know that I fucking hate them. Well for the most part I hate them. This is one of those weird times that it actually works. The sweetness is muted to the point that I can actually enjoy it. It is still there but not to the point of distraction. I dont know why it is called a Pale Ale because there is absolutely nothing Pale about it but what ever I like it.

Avery Brewing Company – Karma (Belgian Pale Ale)

  • 5.20% ABV
  • Finally a Belgian that I can enjoy, it has been a while. This is supposed to be a mix (I guess) of styles from a BPA and a Farmhouse. The only reason I bring that up is because I can almost taste the Saison in there, or I am a idiot and inventing shit. The BPApart is totally noticeable and enjoyable for once. Yup, its pretty good.

Brewery Ommegang – BPA (Belgian Pale Ale)

  • 6.20% ABV
  • I haven’t had a good track record with Ommegang beers so far so I wasn’t really lookin forward to this even tho it is a Pale Ale of some sort. Like every other time I have made up my mind about a style or brewer my assumptions were wrong. I am not saying this is the best beer I have ever had but it is pretty good. It reminds me of a Sarichi Ace or maybe a Du Buff with that kind of flowery taste to it.
