  • Color: Deep Gold
  • Pours clear with a white, thick foam. Retention is well above average with a swelling thickness. Lacing is thick but goes back to level except for the last eighth of an inch.

    Aroma is Belgian yeast forward: a bit of spice. Pepper, floral, and a touch of sweet highlight the beer.

    Taste has some sweetness that is complimented by clove and pepper. Floral notes are there too, throughout. Citrus hops are in the finish.

    Light end of medium body with light carbonation, finishing dry.

    Easy to drink, quenches the thirst. The combination of styles that are blended to perfection: each show through but is complementary to the other. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • Surfers know all too well that ankle-buster waves are barely big enough to surf on, but our Ankle-Buster Ale is bound to create a big wave. With an herbal hop character, fruity/spicy Belgian yeast aromas, toasty and caramel-like malt flavor, and a clean dry finish, Ankle-Buster carves its own path to refreshing, flavorful beer. Best enjoyed with both feet planted on sand.
