About the Belgian Strong Pale Ale

The Belgian Strong Pale Ale was originally crafted by the Moortgat brewery after World War I as an alternative to the popular European Pilsner beers. Its color is a yellow gold with good clarity and visibly effervescent. Its aroma consists of fruity esters, some spice, and low to moderate amounts of hops and booze. The palate follows the nose with fruity flavors of pear, orange, and apple. Bitterness and spice are low to moderate. Its feel is light to medium, highly carbonated with a dry finish. High alcohol lends warmth. The Belgian Strong Pale Ale is similar to the Belgian Tripel but is lighter in color and feel, drier and crisper, with added hopping and fruity esters.
