Sound Brewing of Poulsbo, Washington developed a lot of complexity from just a few ingredients: Belgian Pilsner malt, cane sugar, Motueka hops, Trappist yeast, and water. They call this beer Entendez Nöel. It’s a Belgian Style Pale Quadrupel.
Entendez Nöel pours clear, dark gold with white foam that completely disappears. The aroma is Belgian yeast, candi sugar, sweet malts, apple, and raisins. It tastes as it smells with sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, Belgian yeast, a fair amount of Motueka hops (50 IBU) dark fruit, and apple cinnamon turnover. There’s a lot happening in the glass. The finish is medium-long, more bitter than sweet, which is nice. It’s a complex beer that registers 11.8% ABV.
Sound Brewing opened it’s doors in February of 2011 and has been awarding ever since. They have a line of beers with “Entendez” in the name. I get along fine with this beer!
