COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark chestnut colored ale with a nice steady off-white head. Aroma is all about finesse, loads of blossoms and spring flowers. The mouth-feel is refined, playful and complex with Saison-like peppery flavors. Soft nutty after taste with a bite."

Lukaduke (2059) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Newly released version that is not brewed at De Struise but rather at Dog Brewing in Maryland. Not sure why the price went up two dollars a bottle since the last release seeing as it was brewed much closer to home and the bottle size only increased by .8oz, but I digress. Pours a rich rusty ruby chestnut color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is very interesting with a big malty belgian candi sugar background, touch of kola nut, and some deep floral notes. The palate follows the nose nicely... spiced floral malts, cola, almond a touch thin but round at the same time. Lingering hay and stale grass with just a touch of molasses.
