Belgian Taste test
I've subsequently found out that the speciality grains I used are supposed to be mashed along side a malt with the appropriate enzymes to cause sugar release. Ooops. That being said, I'm sure they are imparting some flavour to the brew, even if not the 'right' flavour. And when chilled on the cellar head that flavour is pretty good. There's some banana and spiciness from the yeast, and it's tasting rather nice. It's certainly drinkable which given the head-cracking ABV is a bit dangerous!
