COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Specter is a golden Belgian ale aged in French Cognac oak barrel. Sweetness from the Pilsener malt complements the apricot notes in the aroma. This continues into the flavor where oak tannins balance the sweetness leaving a smooth and delicate finish with slight warmness.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. It pours an unclear, orangey golden body and a small, dense, off-white head. Peaches, some wood, pale malts, a hint of vanilla and booze, and some spiced hints. Pale malts, white sugar, peaches, some booze and a touch of spices in the flavor. Full body, lightly warming and quite effervescent. Some bitterness in the finish. A beer that starts a bit boring, but it turns out to be a decent one. 130216
