Solitaire – Surlie Brewing

From Abbotsfords Surlie Brewing comes their “Solitaire” a Belgian Strong Dark Sytle Ale.  This ale pours a deep brown with an off white head.  The aroma consists of malts, dark fruits and candied sugar.  The flavour is of caramel malts, dark fruits, banana, candied sugar, yeast with a mild sweet finish.  The alcohol content comes in at a mildly strong 6.5%.  This beer really reminds me of beers coming out of Belgium and is very tasty!  Pick up a bottle for yourself to find out!

Commercial Description:  “Solitaire is a strong beer with hints of dark, dried fruit and spice.  The direct fire brew kettle brings out subtle caramel notes.  Grab your favorite glass and enjoy this beer doing what you love.”

Food pairing as per Surlie Brewing: pairs well with aged cheddar.
