Brewed with divine inspiration and a combination of pale 2-row, Vienna, and medium crystal malts, this snappy ale is finished with East Kent Goldings and Czech Saaz hops. A special blend of yeast strains creates a malty, fruity aroma with a decidedly spicy finish. Try it with the Belgian classic mussels and pomme frites or falafel, fresh pita, and roasted garlic Tzaziki. Serve at 6 C. in a wide mouthed chalice. Unfiltered. 22 IBUs

    Bottle courtesy of Piscator34: Poured a deep amber almost burgundy color ale with a medium foamy had with average retention and almost no lacing. Aroma of spices and dry hops is quite interesting; you can definitely recognized Saaz in there. Taste is also dominated between some spices (which may be attributable to the type of yeast used) and some dry hops (probably Saaz). I thought the malt profile was a bit too discreet and the body was a bit light for the style. Not bad but definitely not the best from this fine brewery.

    660 ml bomber: ( Thanks Kris) Poured a lightly hazed reddish amber ale in the glass. Decent 2 finger rocky sticky cap lasts and laces the glass sides as it drains. Woody-earthy-nutty-musty tones over cooked cereal notes making this ale’s aroma really rustic and primal... very nice. Front side is punctuated with the nutty- woody tastes balance with the chewy Vienna malts, as the yeasts are detected, the mid palate gets a dose of bright fruit tones...finishes slightly herbal- nutty-spicy with a bready after taste. Sheeeoot Dave I like this one almost as much as the Octoberfest!!...this has a woody-earthy malty very primal quality to it but with the added fruity esters....a really nice drinking crafted brew....bravo
