Belgian Strong Ale is the quintessential yeast strain used in the making of highly-prized Belgian Golden Strong Ales. A yeast with an illustrious history that includes the Duvel Brewery, this strain is very alcohol tolerant and can withstand high alcohol environments that would decimate lesser yeasts. It also strikes a nice balance between fruity esters and spicy phenolics to create a uniquely Belgian character that presents itself nicely in light, strong Belgian style ales. With a high temperature range that stretches to 80°F, high attenuation and a somewhat tart finish, Belgian Strong Ale is a yeast that all Belgian lovers should consider for their high-alcohol creations.
