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.

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.
