Dale's Belgian Pale Ale (500ml Bottle)
Brewed with European barley malts, NZ Motueka hop flowers an authentic Belgian Ale yeast, biscuit and toffee notes from the malts mingle with spiciness (clove?, bubblegum?) from the fermentation. The hops contribute hints of citrus and a quenching, dry finish.
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.
