Another Belgian, this time from Brasserie Des Légendes in Ath, Belgium. Noël Des Géants is an unpasteurized, unfiltered, bottle conditioned Belgian spiced strong ale.
Noël Des Géants pours golden rose with a white head of fine foam. This is a spiced beer, but the aroma begins with light caramel malts, candi sugar, Belgian yeast, then gives way to orange and coriander. It tastes bright and clean with balanced malts and hops. There’s white pepper, coriander and some orange peel. The name means Giant perhaps referring to the 8.5% ABV and the taste.
Brasserie Des Légendes also makes Hercule Stout with the recognizable face of Agatha Christie’s Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. They brew in the Medieval Castle of Irchonwelz. This beer also goes by the name Géants Christmas Goliath.
