River Horse Belgian Freeze

A local favorite, River Horse Brewing Companybelgianfreeze has grown into one of New Jersey’s premier craft breweries. I have had the pleasure of visiting this brewery on multiple occasions, and though I do miss the old location in the charming town of Lambertville, the new production facility allows for a better overall brewery visit. Not to mention all of the additional beer they can make!

ABV: 8.0 %

Pour: Amber/Mahogany, slightly cloudy.

Head: Thick Ivory/Cream color.

Nose: Very sweet, with a mix of fruit and caramel notes. Apple. Maybe candy apple?

Palate: Malty with prominent notes of caramel, cookie dough. Lots of rich flavors here.

Finish: Hop notes come through here, with a slight bitterness, but well balanced with more rich, malty flavors. Milk duds, toast, a hint of cough syrup.

Overall: A very nice pour. I remember liking this even more when I had it at the brewery, but this one gets a solid rating from me.

Beer Buyer Overall Rating: 3.5 Out Of 5 Pints
