COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an imported, lower-strength, cask version of the authentic Belgian abbey ale, brewed on behalf of St Peter’s Abbey, in memory of its founder St Arnold, the patron saint of brewers. The beer’s full and slightly smoky yeast aroma leads to a highly distinctive, spicy flavour, created by the use of ‘gruut’ – a mixture of spices typical of the nearby city of Bruges. Hops used: Magnum
