Description 

The Sage Belgian Strong Ale. Historically, the Sage archetype is one of wisdom, knowledge and power. It represents the innate spiritual aspect of our personality in the unconscious. The Sage is a seeker of truth, and this archetype operates from a fundamental principle that ‘the truth will set you free’.
Throughout literature and film, the sage often takes the form of a mentor, someone (or something) who guides the hero on their journey, while at the same time letting the hero choose their own path towards destiny. Yoda, Gandalf, Dumbledore…just to name a few.
The Belgian Strong Ale is a beer very close to our hearts. Big berry bouquet of cranberry, tart cherry, and blueberry mix with notes of figs, raisins, caramelized sugars, and Belgian candi syrup. Classic Belgian flavor, with a medium body and dry finish, makes this a deceptively drinkable strong ale.
