Story

Succubus seduces your tastbuds with amazingly balanced flavor, but she does not seem to linger. It's only after she's gone that you realize how powerful she is, and how much more you want her. That's when you're trapped.

Belgian beers of this style traditionally feature names with devilish themes, like Duvel or Lucifer. Succubus is devilish - devilishly delicious.

Description

A strong golden Belgian-style ale, Succubus hides significant alcohol behind luscious fruit flavors that come from Belgian yeast and European hops. Styrian Golding hops impart a lemon/orange citrus flavor, while Czech Saaz balance the citrus with an herbal spicy note. Twenty percent of the yeast used to ferment Succubus is a blend of strains of Brettanomyces. The Brett lends additional earthy and fruity characteristics.
