Brouwerij Van Steenberge Vampire Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Brouwerij Van Steenberge Vampire Pale Ale.
Commercial description: “With its 7.0% alcohol by volume, Vampire Pale Ale is somewhat higher in alcohol content than regular ales, but it’s not overpowering like the name might suggest. Instead its alluring color and aroma envelop the ever-present hops and fruity esters that leads you craving for more and more. Like all living ales, Vampire Pale Ale will continue to improve with age.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden color with a large white head and great lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, banana, grainy malts and Belgian yeast.
Taste: Straw and grainy malts, Belgian yeast, fruity, coriander, citrus and honey.
Overall: Light and smooth, Brouwerij Van Steenberge Vampire Pale Ale was very delicious. This 7% ABV offering is refreshing and worth picking up again.
