Ivresse En Extase
I'll be brewing this one on 02/10/02. Maybe a better name for it would be EVERYTHING BUT THE KITCHEN SINK. It should have LOTS of body as alot of unfermentables will be generated with the specialty grains. I will keep you posted on how it evolves.

|Yeast:||Wyeast 1388 Belgium strong with gallon starter.

|Tasting:||04/28/02 Tasting notes: Fruity nose, really nice head, big bodied beer but a little strong on the orange flavour. Strong alcoholic kick. Lacks balance at this point in time.|
