Winter in Detroit this year has been kinda... meh. Not too cold, but also not that memorable -- kind of like a lukewarm can of Bud Light at a company picnic. That's why we're so stoked to move on to spring, and we have the beers that will carry us through.
A couple things before we get started: 1) not all of these brews are spring seasonals, and 2) we selected bottles that are widely distributed enough to be easily found either in your local party store or brewery (because not everyone can afford to make a beer pilgrimage to find the super secret limited release). So, onward to warmer days, filled with better beer.
Belgian ale, 6.5% ABV
This Belgian brew adds locally sourced clover honey during the boil, giving the beer its rich color. Don’t expect it to be overly sweet, though; the sugars are broken down during the fermentation process. Instead, it has hints of apricot and nectarine notes, mixed with a floral aroma of northern Michigan hops.
