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.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2013
On tap at the 7th anniversary party. Reddish brown pour with a minimal off-white head. Aroma has a little wheaty funk, but is still dominated by the biscuit and dark fruit malt notes. The flavor verges on cloyingly sweet, with the malt really taking over, but this is tempered nicely at the finish by the brett, which adds some welcome sourness/funk. Good beer, and very easy drinking considering 12.5%. Looking forward to seeing what next year holds for Surly.

nuplastikk (4127) - 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.....

A large beer, but at least its not Syx .. . deep brown .. . mild foam head, lacing is quite good .. . booze, yeast, prune, and bowling fresh .. . decent but no balance .. . . if horse racing is the sport of kings, then surely bowling is ...a very good sport as well...
