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.

SlovakSniper (3548) - 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 (9891) - 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.

undsioux7 (827) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours deep yellow to amber with a medium off white head. Smell makes me think this will be a cloying thick mouthed beer but the taste is lighter with lemony citrus with begian clove yeast and some alchohol.
