COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Continuing our quest to despoil and desecrate conventional beer styles, we’re raiding Trappist traditions to produce this Belgian Style Ale brewed with Rye, Oats and Wheat. Our first beer EVER brewed with Wheat! Belgian yeast creates classic clove-spiced banana aroma and flavor. Dry hopping brings floral and citrus aromatics to the biscuity-smooth malt body.

Draft at CBC 2013 - Copenhagen. Pours clear orange with a white cream head. Yeasty dough in the nose, light banana. Big sweet flavor with rich bready malts, candi sugars, dough. Full bodied with fine carbonation and creamy texture. Sticky-sweet finish with lightly toasted dough, more yeast, fruits. Nice one, in that big, clumsy and sweet way.
