i'm calling this one "Halo Hokum".

My strong golden ale turned out AWESOME. It has a final gravity of 1.020, giving it about 9% ABV, excellent complexity, a beautiful balance of phenolic character, fruitiness, and bitterness. The orange peel is evident in the nose.

This is such a good recipe that I intend to make another batch very soon, perhaps trying the White Labs Belgian Golden Ale Yeast (WLP570) or the Abbey IV Ale Yeast (WLP540). I almost always use Safale dry yeasts, as they perform incredibly well, but I think this beer is worth giving the liquid culture a shot. I may add an additional pound or two of Belgian Pilsener malt to bump the gravity a little higher.

This brew is a total winner, and though I am tempted to call it a trippel, I will stick with Strong Golden as the style. I think the fruitiness and phenols put it over the line.

CHEERS!
