Beligan-sytle dark strong ale made with locally sourced apple cider and autumn spices. Malus is a unique beer, specifically conceived and brewed to celebrate our inaugural bottling. It is inspired by a traditional Belgian style, but redefined by locally-sourced ingredients. We replaced Belgian candi sugar with local apple cider reduced in our kettle over several days, and used our locally-sourced house Belgian yeast for primary fermentation.

PhillyCraft (3516) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Tried a sample at pour house. Clearish brown, small head and lacing. Gingerbread, malt, Belgian spice, dark fruit, apples and sugar are the main tasting notes. Way too sweet overall and pretty damn thin.
