Ahh, that's the spice I couldn't figure out! Very nice. I wish I'd bought more that one bottle.

Massis Banda is a spice from the nutmeg family, it is infact the most aromatic and noble variant of all nutmegs. for the best result, only add it the last minute of the boil.

Cheers and best regards,

Where can you find massis banda ... I have been searching just out of curiosity and it's like it doesn't exist. :) Does it go by any other names?

I love Struise beers by the way .. beautiful beers. thanks.

The Banda Isles are an Indonesian group of small vulcanic Isles in the Banda Sea. To be more spicified, its located in the Molukken area of Indonesia. Capital is Banda Neira. In the 19th century the only source of inkom was the trade of spices like nutmeg end foelie.
Still the nutmeg with origine Banda is the best in the world.
At Struise we, only use the best possible spices in our beers, it allows us to use less and we achive the best results.

Try to find nutmeg with origine Banda.

Cheers,
Carlo.

Indonesia isn't 100% Banda for sure, but could be:

Dude... you rock!

And Carlo... thank you for the information. Is Piraat also one of the beers from De Struise? I have found several places that carry Piraat in Arizona, but none that carry Black Albert. :cry:
On Tap: Saison
Ferm 1: Sour Ale
Ferm 2: 15 Brix Cider
Ferm 3: Pomegranate Wine
