Belgian-style Pale Ale
6.0% • Wild Oats No. 25

History & Style

More sessionable than bigger Belgian styles, the Belgian Pale Ale came to prominence in the mid-20th century. A balanced fruity and floral hop character is complemented by the peppery, spicy notes of Belgian yeast. Beau’s first created Koru in 2012 for our annual Vankleek Hill Oktoberfest celebration.

Tasting Notes

Koru pours deep gold with white frothy foam. The aroma combines tropical fruit with citrusy notes such as candied orange. Koru is medium-bodied and the flavours are peppery and fruity suggesting mango, papaya, pineapple and grapefruit. The finish offers lingering spice.

Food Pairings

Chicken schnitzel with mango & papaya salsa; avocado, lime, red onion & shrimp salad; grilled peaches wrapped in prosciutto; Burrata or fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese.
