Ancient Observations

Belgian-style Strong Golden Ale

Did you know?

From ancient Mesopotamians cataloguing stars to early Mayans constructing planetary calendars, humans have looked to the nighttime sky in wonderment since the dawn of time. It’s with early celestial spectators in mind that we brew Ancient Observations, a Belgian-style Strong Golden Ale that makes use of Galaxy hops and Belgian yeast to impart tropical citrus notes and a touch of spice to this deceptively drinkable Strong Ale. Raise a glass in tribute to our ancestors who looked skyward with inquisitiveness.

Ancient Observations

Tasting Notes

Assertive aromas of pineapple, bubblegum, dried flowers, and a hint of black pepper greet the nose. Overripe banana, red apple, and lime leaf esters play on the palate, while poundcake-like malt, pepper-like spiciness, and herbaceous bitterness play supporting roles.
