Back in my college days (about 30 years ago) there was a beer store near campus (southern NH) that sold over 100 different kinds of beer from all over the world. One of the beers we bought quite often was some kind of "sparkling" beer. I do not remember the brewery, or even what country it came from, but I do remember it was an ale, bottle conditioned (lots of sediment), and came in a regular style capped bottle. I remember it was a light color and light tasting beer, and if you tried to drink it right out of the bottle (stupid college kids) it would foam so much it would squirt out of your mouth.
My question is, where can i find a recipe for such a beer? I'm kind of new to homebrewing, and I have seen a few recipes that might result in something similar, but I'm really not sure where to start. I'm assuming it was some kind of Belgium ale. Most of the recipes that call for high carbonation I see recommend using champagne style bottle for bottling, but I'm sure this beer came in a standard style bottle.
Sorry if this is kind of a vague question, I'm just curious to see what some of you pros have to say about this.
