Austin HomeBrew Supply’s,”Dutch Castle Magic”


The orange peel floating on the top. The aroma is spicy and malty.

12 hours later violent fermentation is taking place, even overflowing our carton half filled with sanitizer and filtered water. If you look close you can see the foam going down the jug.

  This is a great beer for a cold day!

Tasting notes

Hazy amber color. Low to medium carbonation.Malty nose, obvious Belgian like smell from the edge of the glass. Very smooth over the palate, almost no alcohol heat, given it's ABV of 9.95! ( Dangerous). Hint of sweetness, very smooth finish, typical Belgian twang at the end. Very nice beer.
