Commercial Description

A tribute to the highly drinkable ""every day"" beers from French-speaking Belgium. Contains Belgian two-row pale malt and 7% wheat. This beer is lightly filtered with an earthy, spicy hop character from imported Styrian Goldings hops and a beautiful rich creamy head from the wheat. Dry quenching finish achieved by use of the traditional sour mash process

    The aroma had a slight funkiness to it along with a mild grain malt, a floral hop and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus and a mild peppery spice.

    The taste was refreshingly yeasty and a bit funky with notes of citrus and caramel in the beginning and then became a bit malty and slightly bitter with a hint of spice at the end.
