Dominion City Devil’s Brigade Belgian-style Golden Ale
True to style, this is a pale, golden Belgian-style ale with intense fruity, spicy aromas and subtle alcohol warmth. It comes complete with a satanic reference (typical of traditional Belgian-style Golden Ales); in our case an homage to 1st Special Service Force, commonly known as the Devil’s Brigade, an elite Canadian-American commando unit formed during WWII. Despite its devilishly high ABV, it is deceptively quaffable.
Belgian-style ales seldom fit neatly into classic beer styles, but this category represents those "session" ales (in Belgium this means under 7% abv!) that do not fit other categories. Colour ranges from golden to deep amber, with the occasional example coming in darker. Body tends to be light to medium, with a wide range of hop and malt levels. Yeastiness and acidity may also be present.
