Summit Belgian

Unchained Series 04: Belgian Style Golden Ale

Brewer Eric Harper is releasing his Unchained beer the week of July 19!  In his own  words:
Light golden in color, pours effervescent with a thick, rocky head.  The aromas of fruity esters produced by our Belgian yeast strain dominate, while a subtle spiciness from the Czech Saaz and Styrian Golding hops linger in the background.  Brewed with 100% Belgian Malt and tons (literally) of Belgian Candi Sugar, the body was lightened, and the alcohol increased.  The end result is a sublime drinking experience!

That's one of the perks you have living in Belgium. Cheap old bikes, chocolate, and great beer.
