Anticipation Is Freshly Zambonied Ice - Belgian Strong Golden Ale
Pouring a deep, burnt gold, with a fluffy white cap, this effervescent ale is loaded with aromas of clove, spice and apple. Balanced with flavours of apple, spice and bubblegum, this high ABV beer is deceptively drinkable. Flavourful with a semi-sweet finish, Anticipation is a wonderful on its own or accompanied by your favourite meal.

Sam's Take on Anticipation Is Freshly Zambonied Ice:
One of my favourite styles, this was a beer I’ve wanted to make for some time. I’ve always found it astounding how drinkable these strong Belgian ales can be. Also, how much flavour can be summoned from such a simple recipe.
As for the name, it’s just something I remember as a kid. Anxiously sitting behind the boards waiting for the zamboni to leave the ice. Wanting to be the first skater on that clean, unmarked sheet. New ice held so many possibilities. I miss that.
