ad astra per alia porci

This beer has a 8.5% alcohol content as shown on the label, so I was quite surprised because beers usually come in at 5%. It certainly packed a more powerful punch than other beers, even though it is an ale, not stout. I checked the website and realised that the beer is fermented three times, which explains the elevated alcohol content. The added fermentation seemed to have added depth and complexity to the beer, which is very welcome. The Belgian really do know how to do their beer well. Hoergaarden is a wheat beer while Duvel is made of barley. I can’t describe the difference in taste exactly but its there for sure. The beer also had more head than usual beers, which is probably attributable to the added fermentation. All in all an excellent beer that rivals Hoergaarden. I will keep this brand in mind.
