General Information
Method: All Grain

My first attempt at a cask conditioned ale in time for our club’s annual beer festival. This ale is a clone of a Belgian monk session brew that is not served or sold to the public.  The simple ingredients of pilsner malt, hops, any produces a complex flavor of perfumey floral hops, ripe pear fruit, sour apple, spicy cloves, candied citrus and a slight biscuit character on the drying finish.
