It carries a malty aroma of baked bread, biscuit as well as cereal. It has a fruity flavor, overall floral and mildly herbal feel to it.
According to a Jean-Louis Dourcy this beer requires a fermentation temperature of 27 degrees Celsius. Jean-Louis advises using Château Pilsen 2RS, Château Spelt Malt, Château Oat Malt and lastly Château Wheat Blanc for brewing this beer. Hops can include Perle, Cascade, Aramis and Saaz with Safale BE-256. Boiling duration of 95 mins and fermentation at 27 degrees Celsius will give this beer the perfect texture.

B.) Belgian-Style IPA- This variety of beer contains Belgian yeast strains and the hops employed are generally American. There is clean bitterness with a dry edge. Overall, it is a complex, spicy and fruity variation carrying the character of Belgian Strong Pale Ales. Alcohol volume can be on the higher side. Some of the makes tend to be cloudy with overall excellent head retention. The ingredients include Château Pilsen 2RS, Château Munich Light and Château Abbey.
