More info on Belgian Session below…
Brewed with our unique strain of Belgian yeast that imparts a floral and spicy clove character that comes through in the aroma, flavor, and finish of the beer. The blend of malts, including Gambrinus Honey Malt, give the beer a subtle toffee and caramel sweetness. The Hallertau Mittelfrueh Noble hops add a subtle floral character while the American Ahtanum hops have a citrusy character. What makes this beer stand out is its sessionability. At 4.4% ABV this brew is light and crisp but still flavorful and satisfying.
