Recipe Type: Partial Mash    Yeast: Wyeast 3787 - Trappist High Gravity    Batch Size (Gallons): 5    Original Gravity: 1.054    Final Gravity: 1.008    IBU: 28    Boiling Time (Minutes): 60    Color: 3.1    Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14    Tasting Notes: Very light and easy drinking.   
I was looking for a simple to make and refreshing belgian single for the summer. This one has worked out great. It is very light in color with a nice belgian yeast flavor coming through in both the nose and the taste. The acid malt kinda cleans things up in the end and makes it great after or while doing some yard work. Overall, I will be brewing this one yearly.

For an all grain batch, just swap out the extract for 6 more pounds of Pilsner!
