COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Abv reduced from 5.7 to 5.6 in 2010.
Its initial sweetness is, apparently, "of roasted and vinous notes with a subtle bitter aftertaste". Strong fruitiness, often with "banana notes" standing out, is derived from Old Peculier’s fermentation process.

A beer to be sipped not guzzled pours golden brown with large quickly reducing but not disappearing head tastes of bread bananas and raisens very nice beer and true to its word peculiar almost has a hint of Belgium abbey ale would love them to produce a stronger version at around 8% abv
