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.

This one poured a darker yellow to orange with a small white head. Aroma was bubblegum, fruit, and sweet malts. Flavor was light melon, some light tropical fruit and toms and tons of alcohol. Almost umbareable when it warms.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Danish tasting session
I wrote down 8% ABV but it could be a mistake…

Hazy dark amber color with fizzy medium sized head. The aroma seems a bit soapy. Full bodied, malt flavor, sweetish, a bit alcoholic, lightly fruity, with some esters, and light soap touch; ordinary bitterness. Too much alcohol in the final, hot.
Mediocre.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2014
On tap at GTWM 2013. Sugary sweet, not that good. Copper body. Really unimpressive. Would’ve been quite disappointed if I had thrown down on a bottle.

Bottle at Yespr’s - Thanks to a trade. Clear amber - white head. Toasted, soapy, bretty notes, rather high sweetness, citrus, orange, warming alcoholic notes, far too sweet - and give it more brett.....
