Lighthouse Brewing Co - Barque Belgian Golden Strong Ale Review Lighthouse Brewing Co. – Barque Belgian Golden Strong Ale Review

In the Uncharted Series of craft beer from Lighthouse Brewing Co the Barque takes you on “a thirst for adventure” as a Belgian Golden Strong Ale. At 8.2% this is a big and bold beer coming from Victoria BC. Pouring from the bomber bottle the Barque appears as a deep golden colour topped with a finger’s worth of settling head. A Belgian-yeast laced aroma comes with a lightly sweet and malty package for what will surely be a smooth and big tasting beer. On the first sip the Barque comes with a mid body and a defined malt flavour. A honey sweetness and Tripel-esque flavour kicks the package up a notch but surprisingly does not come across as being boozy. The Barque is well balanced and a delicate balance of Belgian and Golden Ale flavours. The Barque is a big beer that plays the role of a much more sessionable beer.
