Commercial Description

Belgian style ale with a subtle hint of spice. A blend of Canadian malted barley, Goldings hops, and a unique flavorful Belgian yeast strain. Unfiltered, unpastuerized and with just a hint of spice this beer is meant to be savored slowly so as to enjoy the aroma as well as the taste. Vintage dated, excellent now but even finer with 2 years age.

    [Best served in a Trappist glass]

    Poured a dark amber/orange with a small fizzy white head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was of light grain malts, a mild citrus hop and a sweet belgian yeast with notes of banana, apricot, corriander, maple syrup and had a mild alcohol tinge. It tasted moderatley sweet with hints of banana, citrus and corriander from the begining and stayed pretty much throughout with the finish having just a little sourness to it. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and syrupy and creamy in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall all it was a good tasting brew that did a great job of concealing the high ABV, although it was just a little sweet for my taste.
