12 ounce bottle thanks to JW77. Pours a mostly cloudy orange color with a large fluffy white head. A big nose of dusty yeast and some sawdust. Seems like a fairly strong brett character, some lemon, robust citrus at times, woody, peppery. Very nice. The thick wax is unneeded.

Pours a medium to deep golden color with a finger of foam that settles out quickly. Nose is a mix of sweet white grape juice, cardboard and apple juice. Palate follows with a strange rubbery quality that comes across kind of like brushing your teeth with mint toothpaste and then sipping apple juice. Bitter, medicinal, slight caramel... strange.

In short: A Tripel-like strong belgian blonde ale with a gentle chardonnay flavor. Good.
How: Bottle 375ml, thick off-white wax. Consumed many months after receiving it from MikeLuke23, thanks a lot Mike.
The look: Almost clear blonde body topped by a persistent small white head.
In long: Nose is estery, a bit phenolic, discreet presence of chardonnay barrels. In mouth the beer has an slightly oily texture with a medium carbonation, not exactly the lively mouthfeel I expect from a good Belgian ale but it might be due to the time spent in barrels. Taste is like a typical Belgian Tripel with a good chardonnay presence. This Chardonnay character is true chardonnay, I didn’t even get a barrels sensation, it was more like someone took a classic Belgian Tripel (let’s say a St. Bernardus Tripel) and then poured a shot of white wine in it. I never had the base beer, I don’t even know if it is sold without treatment, but I think there is a good Tripel-style beer in there, I would probably like the base beer as much (if not more) than this chardonnay treatment, but nowadays only barrel aged beers are taken seriously. Just another bottle I drank on a weekday, and as I closed my refrigerator door and poured myself a glass of juice I swear I heard a muffled collective “what the fuck?” coming from within my beer cellar.

thome50 (1099) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Waxed 12oz bottle from a long lost trade. Poured the night before my son comes home from the hospital. Last night of rest for quite some time. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a big white thick head. Aroma is pear, fruit, white wine and some oak. Taste is overtly sweet and white wine like with a slight lactic sour but the sweet white wine and corn play against each other and make this one something I don’t think I can finish more than 4oz of for fear of a nasty headache come the morning.

Sticky lace atop the light yellow body. Lactic, wine barrely, pungent aroma. Spikes of sweetness mixed with Brett and other funk. Tasty.
