I've brewed this many times. It's quite tasty indeed (though I say it myself).

At least, the 7bbl batch I brewed a few years ago for a brewpub went over very well!

If you brew it, let me know how it works for you.

Cheers!

Bob

This seems so interesting! Also a seemingly simple brew. Could you describe it a little more taste wise? What style would this be (still a n00b)? I have an empty keg that this might need to go in.

It's fairly neutral in terms of flavor, unless you use the Ardennes. Then it has a bit of Belgian funk, but fairly restrained. It's definitely on the malty side, with plenty of foam and mouthfeel from the oats and wheat. It will be relatively turbid.

As for style, it doesn't really fit any category other than Experimental. Bit of a cop-out, but there you are.
