COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tafelbully is a Belgian-inspired table beer based on a recipe from our friend Matt Staley. Tafelbully is the bully of the other table beers, pushing them around with its citrusy dry hopping, Belgian yeast spiciness, and a refreshing Brettanomyces finish. Even though it is a bit bolder than most, this is still a session beer. It features a delicate malt character from the European pilsner and specialty malts and judicious dry hopping with citrusy Sorachi and Amarillo to compliment the gentle fruitiness and delicate phenols of the Belgian and Brettanomyces yeasts.

The hops are light as is the body, but it’s got a lemony twang going on and a fantastic bretty nose. Nice and refreshing, different.

This beer is a light yellow color. It has a spiciness to it and is easier drinking than a lost of triples. Well done.

maekchu (3044) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 9, 2014
Tap at AQ Bevolution 2nd Anniversary event at Yellow Ape Craft. Moderately intense bready malt nose with some funk. Mild fruity initial, Brett rises up soon along with a touch of sour fruit, stewed peaches, and a mild acid note in final. Good enough but seems underdone.
