COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Golden Ale aged in Chardonnay Barrels. One of two in our Adventure Brews wine barrel aged releases, this beer was brewed in Feb. 2012 and aged for 1 year in Flat Rock Chardonnay Barrels. Brewed with German malts, fermented with a Belgian yeast, and hopped with Styrian Goldings hops. Brettanomyces contributes an earthy funkiness that is balanced by peach and pear notes from the chardonnay barrel. The beer finishes with a slightly tart and dry finish. Unfiltered and still active, flavours will continue to develop in the bottle. Goedemorgen is the Belgian term for “Good Morning”.

Very pale golden pour. The nose is softly tart. Lactic with a bit of soft funk. A bit of light fruitiness and some cherry/apple fruit. A light restrained wheatiness along with a vineous sort of tart fruit. Pretty awesome stuff.

On tap at bar hop. Another amsterdam triumph! Peaches, pears, earthy hops, citrus zest, and woody grasses. Citrus pithy bitterness, fresh stone fruit finish, with some acidic white wine qualities. Nice stuff.

Gift from Guillaume and Kyle! Thanks guys! Served in a chalice. Pours a cloudy orange with a tall white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma: Sour cherries, peach, raisins. Very nice. Palate: Thick bodied, slightly tart and very very dry finish. Taste: strong alcohol taste. One of the better combinations of beer-in-wine-barrels that I’ve had.

Bottle. Pours light golden yellow with a white head. Nice and funky, with some light oaky notes, peach-like fruity notes, medium tartness, and a nice dry tart finish. Restrained barrel presence is what makes this one great. Loved it.

Sampled this at Campground Brewdown 2. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft funky musk on the nose. Soft acid, funky musk. A bit of funk and some charred barrel notes on the finish.

2013-06-22. Warmer temperature may have helped, as the fruit chracter comes out more, and the oak is just a touch less prominent than previous samples. +1 or 2 overall. Session Festival 2013

2013-06-18. Lightly hazy pastel/golden yellow body with a small white head that fades. Aroma of dry woody oak to start, vinous fruit, muted malt. Flavour has a good amount of oak up front which I don’t love but it fades enough as you go to let the pleasant fruity, lightly sour second wave come through. Dry lightly tannic oak character in the finish, vinous fruit blends intriguingly with vanilla tannins in the finish. Not particularly funky? Smooth average plus bodied bodied palate, soft moderate carbonation. Suits the beer well. 3+ Very interesting, the subtleties of the vinous fruit are lovely but the mild overall character means that the relatively moderate oak character is more prominent than it would be in a more boldly flavoured beer. The oak fades a bit the more quickly I drink it, giving just a touch more sourness as well. 7/3/7/3/15-16 On tap at Bryden’s, Toronto

On tap at Emmet Ray’s tap takeover. Tangy tart, a nice drinking ale. Belgian pale is basic and does not intrude. Pale coloured, no head. Nicely carbonated. 10% well hidden.
