In this beer blog, here is another brew from Wynkoop Brewing and the beer is Belgotado Belgian-Style India Pale Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog post on their beers, you know a little something on this brewery. If you have not, please, read those beer post to get to know this brewery. Let us get into the beer.
The beer is a hazel golden color without a head on it. The smell is an earthly with Belgian species. The taste is a light body with Belgian species to it. There is a dry hop aftertaste.
Here is a description from the beer can:
Meet our small batch Belgium-meets-Colorado thriller. It’s built with Colorado-grown malts and whole leaf hops, then fermented with a Belgian yeast. Luscious and balanced, it features pale malt flavors, layers of hops from start to finish, and spice notes.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I am not a huge fan of this India Pale Ale style. I just found this pretty unique beer because it is in a can. I believe this is the American version of the Belgian Triple. It fits the smell and the taste of all the Belgian funkness. It either comes from the yeast or the spices that they use in this beer. I enjoy drinking it but I would not buy it on a regular basis if it was available in the Chicago market. However, I went on their website and I did not see it in their line up, it makes me wonder if they stop making this brew. If you can find it, go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
