Karl Strauss Welcomes Winter With Fullsuit Belgian Brown Ale
San Diego, CA – Here in San Diego, the nights are getting chilly and we’re almost ready to release our fall seasonal, Fullsuit Belgian Brown Ale. This beer is our spin on a nutty and smooth brown ale, warm fermented with a Belgian yeast strain adding a spicy and peppery complexity. Firm toasted malt and roasted nut flavors are underpinned by a hint of vanilla that comes from aging the beer on French oak.
We condition this beer on French oak chips, giving the finished beer a subtle vanilla and oak finish—it’s almost like a graham cracker in a glass. Fullsuit Belgian Brown will be available across California in 12oz bottles and on draft, beginning November 1, through February, 2013.
Alcohol by Volume: 6.3%
Color: 32 SRM
Bitterness: 24 IBU
Availability: November-February, Kegs and Bottles
