This is the first release in our Grandmothers series of Belgian Beers named after the women in our families. We've been sitting on this deliciously dark Belgian Ale for a few months now. Notes of figs, plums and dark molasses drift into a soft, embracing alcohol warmth. Share it with someone special. 💓 Or keep it for yourself! We have decided to release a few bottles while the nights are still cool and perfect for this sipper. Once they're gone you won't see this one again 'till the fall! Andrea's Belgian Grandma Octavie would have approved!

    750ml bottle from the brewery pouring a clean dark brown colour with a light mocha-coloured head, good stay leaving some creamy lacing. Sweet nose at first with a mix of maple syrup and molasses. Then, boozy notes comes out, with some grassy hops, roasted malts and hints of caramel. The taste starts on the mapleness, but the hops gives enough to cut the sweetness and offer a decent dryness, alcohol smoothness. A touch of apples, burnt barley base and mild caramel malts. Maple notes lingers. This is quite a nice warming beer, and what a good one for their first Quad.
