COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An homage to the monk’s noble work, this unique farmhouse ale is incredibly complex with notes of lemon, pepper, straw and herbs balanced by the tang of Mandarin oranges and a spicy kick of pepper. The Mandarin oranges used to make this beer were locally grown, including a portion grown on the grounds of the Abbey of New Clairvaux and picked by hand by the community of monks living there. We hope you enjoy this collaboration ale.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle, 375ml corked. A dense, finger-thick off-white head sits on top of a lightly hazy dark golden body. The aroma is rather banana-ish and toffee-ish, with a faint spiced touch and some orange. Spiced hints too, not much Saison yeast impact. The alcohol is detectable in both nose and mouth. The flavor is quite sweet, with banana, toffee, a spiced hint and orange. Full body, soft and smooth, with a little alcohol warmth. Some bitterness in the else sweet finish with banana, some toffee and spices. Not much of a saison this one, but quite decent anyway. 130819

From notes: Poured hazy orange-amber with a 1-finger white head. Pleasant aroma of citrus and spices, with a mild earthy note beneath. Medium body, lightly oily with a mild astringency to the finish. Flavor is of orange, with notes of spice and a touch of caramel. Takes on some earthy yeast notes as it warms. Liked this a lot.
