2018 Belgianfest Beer List
1) Dubbel Vision (7.8% ABV/25 IBU)

malt, brown sugar and honey. Starting with aroma and flavor notes of ripe banana, this dark beer
then finishes with a pleasant spicy sweetness and just a touch of alcohol warmth that hints at its
2) Trippel Vision (9.99% ABV/6 IBU)
Our Belgian Trippel adheres to traditional guidelines with its pale straw color from mostly
pilsner malt and its high alcohol content. The aromas and flavors of peach nectar blend with
characteristic Belgian yeast spiciness to make your lips sing!
3) Peppercorn Saison (4.6% ABV/15 IBU)
While the most quaffable of our Belgian beers at 4.6% ABV, this guy still packs a punch. We
add four different types of peppercorns (black, green, pink and white) to give our traditional
Saison a savory flavor that compliments its dry finish.
4) Bravetart” (7% ABV/ 35 IBU)
Our intrepid Broadsword Scottish ale aged in a bourbon barrel for a year and a day emerges with
flavors of tart raspberries, crab apple, even cabernet sauvignon and aromas of over ripe fruit,
subtle aged cheese and some barnyard funk. They may take our lagers, they may take our ales,
but they’ll never take our Bravetart!
1) The Butler – Dark Saison (6.4% ABV/28 IBU)
The Butler is an easy drinking Saison. Notes of fruit jam and cloves mingle with biscuit and
roast. This beer finds balance between a traditional saison and a smooth dark ale; while complex
and ever changing in flavor, it maintains its approachability.
2) Frances Farmer Brett Saison (6.3% ABV/24 IBU)
A rustic farmhouse ale aged four months in a french oak foeder with four varieties of
Brettanomyces yeast. Brewed with raw wheat, pilsner, and vienna malts along with hops from
the Alsace region of France. This delicate saison carries elegant notes of ripe peaches and aromas
of sweet hay, leaving a complex and rewarding aftertaste.

Tripel. Modestly bittered but generously dry-hopped, aromas of pineapple, eucalyptus, and
almond dominate while it finishes smooth and crisp.

and dry finish balance this fireside sipper.
Beardslee Public House-Bothell
1) Magnolia Saison (6.75% ABV/16 IBU)
A Farmhouse Style Ale that is spicy and fruity. It is spicy from the Belgian ale yeast, and fruit
forward from the addition of blood orange puree. Just 4 ounces of puree per keg lends a subtle
stone fruit flavor.
2) Widow Maker Wit (6% ABV/28 IBU)
Flavored with orange peel & coriander. This wheat ale is a 400-year-old beer style that died out
in the 1950’s; it was later revived by Pierre Celis at Hoegaarden, and has grown steadily in
popularity over time. Wit means “white”, a name that describes the beer’s pale color and cloudy
appearance. “widow maker” is a logging term meaning a loose limb that may fall on a logger
resulting in death.

This Belgian Dubbel is extremely complex rich and malty. The use of Belgian yeast from
Westmalle Abby produces aromas of savory spices and dried fruit. This is a blend of 2 oak casks,

pulling and pushing motion.
