Mountain Goat Rapunzel 2012

Mountain Goat (Asahi)

Released November 21, 2012

They don't venture into Belgium too often at Mountain Goat, but when they do it tends to result in the appearance of this flaxen-haired maiden. A fixture in their annual release schedule for some time now, it's a strong golden ale inspired by the classic Duvel. True to its name it's strong (8.3 per cent) and golden in colour. And true to its heritage, it's a a slightly hazy number with clove, spice and vanilla aromas that's spicy and dry to taste. A previous incarnation spent time inside a Chardonnay barrel; this one is instead seeing the inside of a glass bottle. Well, lots of them in fact, as it becomes the first batch of Rapunzel to be granted Rare Breed status, meaning you'll find it on shelves in good bottleshops as well as rocking the horny tap head in good bars.
