Helios Ale by Victory Brewing, Downington, PA review
Hazy golden-orange hued farmhouse style ale, 7.5 ABV. Aroma of citrus and sweet malt. Sweet on the palate as a Belgian style ale should be, hints of spiciness from the yeast, an imported Belgian strain, gives flavors of clove and black pepper. I seem to find a grapefruit rind-like flavor lingering on the finish. A very easy drinking beer which packs a wallop like most Belgians do. Victory Brewing Company produces excellent brews from Pennsylvania. I really enjoy their beers! Cheers! Thanks for reading!
