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.

Bottle. Cellared for 2 years. Some sour notes but not spoiled. Full flavored but not over bearing. Tasting notes similar to those who tasted July 2013 but mellowed and soft.

Leighton (16279) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2015
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.

Bottle. Dark copper with a frothy off white head. Aroma is slightly funky and yeasty with dark fruit notes. Taste is incredibly boozy but has nice dark fruit and a little clove and citrus. Palate is full with a sharp boozy bite at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arminjewell (9144) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy golden pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, cracker, white fruit into sweet white grape, hints of yeasty, doughy notes with a hint of peppery, slight grassy notes. Taste was a mix of grass, pepper, spice into a bit of earth, some sweet cracker, bread, biscuity notes with a hint of white fruit, finishing spicy, sweet, slight booze.

SlovakSniper (4340) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
Un col de mousse sur une robe orange brûlée. Des arômes de caramel fruité, de toffee, de sucre candi, d’épices, d’alcool et de médicaments. Des saveurs très douces, fruitées, artificielles et rendues amères par l’alcool. Un corps assez épais mais bien aéré. Une finale chaude et plutôt douce. Rien vraiment pour me plaire ici.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle... Pours lightly hazed and Longhorn-orange with a small, creamy, white head. It’s mostly gone in a flash, but not entirely. The aroma offers toffee, pear and a whisper of clove. No banana ester here. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and busy carbonation. The flavor features sweet toffee and crusty bitterness. Boozy and mildly phenolic. Chest-warming finish. This is one of the better American-brewed Belgian-style beers I’ve tried in a good while. My score indicates that even the best-brewed attempts still make me wish Americans would stop trying to brew dubbels, quads and trippels like Belgians.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2014
bottle, syrupy thick orange pour. very sweet. Tropical fruit heavy, touches of banana & cloves. Thick mouthfeel. Extremely sweet, decent but only a few oz is necessary
