Old gold color. Boozy, hoppy aromas of new sneakers, oregano focaccia, baked apricot, and banana creme with a finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a hot, breezy shortbread cookies, meyer lemon, honey-nectarine, and beeswax candle finish. A peppery herbal ale with fine table affinity.

Belgian Style Specialty Ale

This is not a classic style but represents various beers of similar Belgian theme. This category is, practically speaking, a catchall for beers that don’t fit neatly in an existing category. Specialty beers may be flavored with, or affected by, unusual ingredients (ginger, chipotle peppers) or fermentation agents (Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus), or brewed with unusual fermentables (buckwheat, sweet potatoes, maple syrup). Given the variation possible in this category, there are no established standards for appearance, aroma or flavor. Instead, beers in this category are defined by a pleasing combination of the beer’s elements and overall drinkability.
