22 oz bottle from Freddy's. Seems like a marketing gimmick, and maybe it is, but this is an outstanding beer. Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF) - this is a Belgian clone using wild yeast strains, apparently from the master brewer's beard. That's the gimmick part. Wild yeasts are nothing new, and add a wonderful layer of complexity. The banana and fruity esters aren't overpowering like some Belgians can be - very balanced with a great aroma. Pours a hazy orange with little head. A little pricey but definitely a nice treat.
