Brilliant hazy gold color. Herbal, spicy aromas and flavors of herb muffin, delicate spiced nuts, and dried flowers and bananas with a satiny, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, interesting, medium-long delicate pepper and mint, radicchio, and caramelized spiced apples and pears finish. A very inviting and satisfying Belgian ale with rich malt and spicy hop notes.

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.
