Notes

This beer was made, then pitched on top of a yeast cake from an Abbey Ale I racked into secondary. It's a traditional Belgian ale that is really balanced and drinkable. It got it's name from the 1 percent addition of Special B Malt that imparted a complex dimension to the beer, a subtle raisin-plum flavor that compliments the WlP 500 fruit esters.
