Aging in oak barrels for 6 months gives this beer an uncommon smoothness and richness.

Pours a thin white layer, that fades slowly leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is candy sugar, Belgian yeast and hints of alcohol, flavor is smooth, sweet, fruity & hints of caramel. Nice clean finish. The 13% ABV is not really noticeable but savor this beer, it ain’t cheap. Caged & corked 750ml bottle. Bottled in 2013.

Mooie bruine kleur, weinig schuim. Ruikt heerlijk, naar wijn, hout. Smaakt fantastisch. Beetje zoet, beetje zuur, beetje bitter.

Westmeister (1978) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2014
2010 Vintage. Shared with some noncraft drinkers who loved. I also thought is was quite impressive. Dark brown red/orange pour with thinner white head. Smell is white wine, oak, ripe fruits (but on the light side; think tripel), some booze. Taste was white wine, with big oak barrel flavoring, vanilla, fruity light booze. Light carbonation with medium palate. Fine, fine beer.

Complexité entre la bière et le vin très intéressante pour cette bière de dégustation. Rondeur et corpulence très agréables. Super produit.

JulienHuxley (3852) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
750 ml bottle. Dark gold amber pour with thin bubbly white head. Aroma is really oaky, white wine notes, boozy fruits. Taste is quite tannic, very oaky, white wine flavors. Rich palate, quite thick. good carbonation. Original beer, don’t think I ever had anything quite like it. Good stuff.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2014 I had this a cellar temperature at Monk’s cafe in Philly. This caramel malty brew with semi sweet bread and cereal dances on the tongue with a citrusy twinge. The alcohol is quite sufficient and the heavy mouth feel is deft with leathery carbonation. There is ginger essence and raisin, with a bourbon presence emanating from the wooden exposure. Nice to try.

ogivlado (6157) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottled 750ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Unclear amber coloured, medium to big off-white head, lots of small yeast particles floating all over the glass. Alcoholic and slight vinous fruity nose. Distinct wood notes with quite alcoholic and mild fruity taste. Some notes of yeast and spices. Dry alcoholic finish. Both of Bush (de Nuit and Prestige) beers were really great.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle, pours amber with an ever so slightly haze to it. A nose to die for, some slight fruit but also nuts (almonds) and hoppy. You get a big dollop of wood on the finish. The only unfortunate thing for this beer is the smell is better than the taste.
