Belgian Beer Tasting 5/1-5/4

For such a geographically small country, Belgium sports quite an impressive number of beer styles - and delicious ones at that! Belgian beers are primarily ales with a heavy emphasis on malts and a lot of fruity yeast flavors. This week's tasting will feature four Belgian style ales made by craft breweries in the U.S..

1. Stone Brewing Co. - Saison

Saison - Escondido, California (6.0% alc.)

2. The Lost Abbey - Devotion

3. Brewery Ommegang - Fire and Blood

4. Sundowner Brewery - Tripel
