Recipe Details
Tasting Notes This was one of my first beer i have brewed and it was one of the worse beer I have ever brewed. My friends like it thou.The esters from the yeast dominated this beer. Tastes and smelled lika an amber ale with hints of cherry and vanilla, if you see past the esters. The hops didnt came throu as much as I wanted either. It reminded me very mcuh of leffe blond actually. I guess you have to like the WB-06 to like this one.
