Block 15 Wellspring by Block 15 Brewing Company
Belgian Pale Ale
7.00 % ABV

Inspired by Belgian brewers' mastery of complexity and balance, Wellspring began as a dry-hopped pale ale brewed with Belgian malts. It was then conditioned on brettanomyces to produce effervescent natural carbonation, a fruity and rustic palate, and a classically Belgian dry finish.

Dark amber color. Can’t see through it but it glows. Looks like the amber from Jurassic Park. Small head in my pour but strong. Turns to halo lacing. The first thing is that this isn’t a Belgian Pale Ale in my book. First, it’s darker and stronger than my conceptualization of that title. More importantly, it comes off as more of a Biere de Garde. Particularly, a fruitcake-like maltiness, which is very present on the nose. The Brett melds beautifully with the maltiness. Lots of bitter herbal flowers from the Brett. I think the two ends of this spectrum (thicker malts and airy herbal) balance each other well. Mouthfeel is a bit spritzy, surprisingly, with a touch of slickness that finishes fast leaving my palate wanting more. Flavor is similarly a balance of the malts and Brett. But the sugars are well-attenuated leaving behind trace fruitcake. More of the Bretty flower petals. Definitely one I’m enjoying slowly and really could drink a big bottle as well. A friend from Idaho gave me this and I’m super happy.
