Moon Under Water – Wedding Ale Belgian Triple Review
Brewed to commemorate the wedding of couple leading the charge at Moon Under water the Wedding Ale is a Belgian triple in the Single Batch series of beers. This wax topped, wine bottle style ale is surely a formidable beast with an alcohol content of 9%. Cracking through the white wax top this Belgian style is actually rather difficult to open as the bottle has a large ridge below the top and covered in wax it is less that simple to get a bottle opener to grasp the cap. That irrelevant fact leads up to the pouring of an opaque-straw coloured beer that pours with a single finger of lacing head Through this comes a strong citrus scent with notes of coriander and a nice floral aroma. Along side there is a sweetness that cuts out any signs of alcohol tones in the smell. The flavour starts off slight with citrus tones and a touch of spice before building into a big-bodied Belgian Triple. The spices build along with malted notes and a touch of hop leading up to the finish. The alcohol notes come forward at the finish with a candy sugar and wheat tones that linger behind. This is a big beer that you will remember – The wedding will ring strong in your memory as a bold Belgian beer with a kick of citrus, spice and big BC beer flavour.
