I loved it. My three bottles are gone. I gave one to a friend who I thought would appreciate it, had one the night I picked them up from the brewery and enjoyed the last one last night under the stars on the last night of our camping trip. I think I prefered the Westmalle yeast version of the bottles but I think the draft version at the GTAs was the best of all.
I know Belgian beer is the Holy Grail of beer and all that but I have never quite developed an affection for all the complexity their oddball yeasts impart. I would love to try this beer again with a more standard ale yeast. I guess being involved in making it makes me want to play with the recipe and see what differences in taste some changes in the ingredients produce. I guess that's what homebrewing is all about!
Is there a link to the recipe posted anywhere? It would be nice to show to the friend I gave the one bottle to and maybe to recreate it someday inthe future.
I think this whole idea was a great one and I enjoyed the brew day, the anticipation of the beer, the GTAs and also my bottles. Hats off to Jon for coming up with the idea but lets hope it was just the beginning. I'd love to do something like this again!
