Scaldis Belgian Ale

Brasserie Dubuisson

Belgium

Probably the strongest Belgian golden ale I've had to date at 12% ABV, in a teeny 250 ml bottle. I first heard of this over a decade ago, when Kris had tried it. I remembered the name, because his description sounded just like the name, which is awful (like Scott Farkus, not a great sounding name). Anyway, Kris would probably still not like it very much, and I wasn't crazy about it either. I can't put a finger on it, it wasn't bad, but it didn't excite me. While almost as strong, it wasn't as alcoholic-tasting as Belzebuth. I think I'll stick with the lighter Dubel.

I first had this at one of those pubs that has 100 beers available. This was, as Steve pointed out, over 10 years ago, and I didn't yet have the open mind about beer that I do now. I thought it was horrible. "Didn't like it" was a gross understatement. And I swore never to have it again. So far I'm keeping good with my promise.
