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 750ml 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 Pilsener Malt with Honey Malt, Special B, Aromatic Malt and a touch of Chocolate Malt. Apollo hops balance all that sweetness to 35 IBU. Tango is available throughout our distribution area for a limited time only!
Be sure to get some before it’s gone! Will cellar well. Released January, 2014.
Tango debuted as the 20th installment of Weyerbacher’s Brewers’ Select Series in November of 2011. Brewers’ Select ‘Tango’ wasn’t bottle conditioned, was a tad lower in alcohol and was distributed in kegs only to a very limited amount of bars and restaurants. 12 oz bottles were available exclusively at the Visitors Center.
