Our recipe was inspired by the traditional refectory ales known as patersbier (“fathers’ beer” in Flemish) in Belgium. These sessionable beers are brewed by the monks for their dinner table and are typically only available at the monastery. Spencer is a full-bodied, golden-hued ale with fruity accents, a dry finish and light hop bitterness. The beer is unfiltered and unpasteurized, preserving live yeast that naturally carbonates the beer in the bottle and keg and contributes to the beer flavor and aroma.
This collision of Old and New World hops provide an explosion of tropical aroma and a juicy bitterness. Born out of character.
A big, bold mouth feel backed by some powerful banana and classic weizen notes, balanced by an eclectic variety of hops from America (Simcoe) the Czech (Saaz) and the UK (Bramling Cross).
