This week’s BeerSox Beer of the Week hails from Full Sail Brewery, an independent employee-owned brewery in Hood River, Oregon.
Sanctuary is part of the limited release Brewmasters Reserve 2011 group and touts itself as a Belgian Style Dubbel.
It has a nice rich amber color, and a smooth taste of malt with just enough hops. Not too sweet on the malt and not too heavy of an after flavor in the back. It’s refreshing and sweet without going overboard. It would be a good intro to craft beer drink since it’s light and flavorful with only a hint at the heaviness you find in most malty beers.
