Based on the Flemish classic (Oud Bruijn) this very complex beer has many flavor facets. Brewed using redwood tips and the rare New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hop, this lively red ale is aged in wine, bourbon, brandy, and port barrels before blending. The final blend also includes a small amount of our Grand Cru (a blend of both Brother David’s Belgian ales aged in wine barrels). The resulting beer is very complex medium-bodied beer with a vinous character from the wine barrels and spicy notes from both the redwood tips and the Nelson Sauvin hops. Combined with a light sourness from the bacterial fermentation, these myriad flavors are underlined by a smooth, round Belgian character from the Grand Cru – extremely complex yet very drinkable.

Draft at Capone’s: Aroma of diacetyl, butter, and hints of red wine and malt. Poured deep amber/red/brown in color with a large, creamy, dense, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of funk, butter, diacetyl, and some lemon juice. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Diacetyl, butter, funk, lemon juice finish is dry. No hint of barrels at all.

On tap at Bocktown Robinson. Meh...probably on par with what I expected. Aroma was caramel with just a hint of stale malt.Pour was a light brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was a little disappointing. The roasted caramel malt was the main flavor with a slight vinegary aftertaste. Mouth feel was very thin and there was barely any finish. Light carbonation.
