It’s been awhile since I’ve had a Belgian Strong Pale Ale. It’s been slightly over a month and I was really in the mood for one. This one was on tap where I had lunch, so I was interested in seeing how this one was and was a bit shocked that I’d never had it before. Let’s see how it was.
Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Malheur 10° is also called Malheur Millennium (MM). MM is the year 2000 in Roman numerals. This beer was actually introduced to the market in the year 2000. Beer connoisseur Michael Jackson describes the aroma of the blonde Malheur 10° as ‘a pinkish peach with notes of spicy orange and lemon peel. The beer literally boasts a bright yellow colour and a rich honey texture, it is somewhat oily too but with incredible body and a bitter sour note in the warm aftertaste. In short this blonde tasting beer that contains 10% alcohol by volume will delight beer enthusiasts the world over.'”
Random: I can’t wait until Fall.
This beer poured with a one finger, white head that was very slow to dissipate. It left Lots of lacing on the glass. It had a cloudy, golden-yellow body with light carbonation visible. The nose had Belgian yeast, banana and golden raisins. The taste was sharp and had golden fruit, Belgian yeast and a pronounced booze bite too. Spice was there as well with clove and coriander. Biscuit finished up the sip. It had a thick, chewy body with moderate carbonation. The beer had a long finish with Belgian yeast, booze and coriander and clove. This was a really solid Belgian that I would definitely have it again.
