Tango is a big, bold, Belgian-style dark ale brewed with 1,200 pounds of cherries!
Tango pours a beautiful ruby color with a nice fluffy head, offering a very complex aroma of cherries and other dark fruits. The strong 750 ml glass bottle finished with a cork and cage allows the very robust bottle-conditioning responsible for Tango’s effervescence. Dark fruit flavors join the cherries to match up with the strong malt bill with the Belgian yeast adding its 2 cents along the way.
Tango weighs in at 10.6% ABV and was brewed using a base of Pilsner Malt with Honey Malt, Special B, Aromatic Malt and a touch of Chocolate Malt. Apollo hops balance all that sweetness to 35 IBU.
Tango debuted as the 20th installment of Weyerbacher’s Brewers’ Select series in November of 2011, however, it wasn’t bottle conditioned and was a tad lower in alcohol.
