Our Belgian Harvest Ale is an ale in the farmhouse tradition - a bit lower in alcohol than some of the strong triple and trappist styles, and fermented with a yeast that leaves a clean (for Belgian) balance in the finished ale. Not as smooth as a lager, this one has a wonderfully complex flavor anchored by the German pale/Munich malt and pale beet sugar base, and accented by the unique flavors imparted by the Belgian yeast strain and European hops. Starting gravity: 1.058.  Alcohol: 6%, IBU's 33.

 

Includes 8 pounds of blended malt and pale beet sugar, flavoring and aromatic hops, 125ml of liquid yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Ease of Brewing: Beginner.

A good extract recipe with authentic flavor

Review by Ashley M. on 10/18/2007

Pros: I'm no Belgian ale expert but I have tried a few commercial offerings in restaurants, etc.. In my opinion, this ale has the correct flavor which I assume is imparted largely by the sugar and partially by the yeast. My batch actually finished closer to 6.7% ABV.

Cons: Nothing major. As stated in the description, definately "not as smooth as a lager" but that's to be expected in a brew of this strength. If I brew it again, I'd try bumping up the priming sugar by maybe 15%.

Great Brew'

Review by Bob M. on 3/7/2008

Pros: Very complex flavor, nice after a long day at work. A little harsher flavor than an ale, But that is what makes it unique,

Cons: Its all gone ....

Good but preffered the Triple

Review by Justin K. on 3/24/2008

Pros: Nice smooth taste, easy to brew. If you like belgians definitely give this one a try.

Cons: Not as good as the Belgian triple in my opinion. (though I'm partial to the stronger flavors and ABV)

Tasty

Q: Do your kits come with grain sweeping bags and bottle caps? I was unable to determine if they did. I have never ordered from your company.

A: Grain steeping bags are not needed because we blend the extract for the kit, so grain is not included. Bottle caps are not included.
