In our hunger to explore the true taste of an original IPA, we went back to the very roots of IPA: England around 1830. This beer is made with 100% ’Maris Otter’ malt and East Kent Golding hop flowers (a lot!)

Then, to monitor the development of flavours during barrel-aging the beer is/will be bottled after: half a year; one year and one and a half year of barrel-aging (in Puligny Montrachet barrels). For comparison the beer is also bottled without the barrel aging.

So 4 batches will be released as an experiment. The release dates will be: End April 2014; end october 2014 and finally with the full 1 1/2 years of barrel-aging by the end of April 2015. I hope you enjoy a truly magnificant beer-style that was almost forgotten, but has a real revival lately.

Bottle with bronze wax - a few bottles with blue wax also exist. Silver wax is 1 year old, gold wax will be the 1.5 year old version.

Bottled, courtesy of Arjen. Hazy golden colored, lasting medium head. Nose of British hops, hint of wood. Pretty bitter flavor, flowery hops, quite dry. Hops are not very pronounced in aroma, but overly present in flavor, thereby pushing away the other flavors. Not an entirely succesful experiment.

Nice! Interesting beer. Opague orange with a good head and just the right amount of carbonation. There is some floral sourness on the nose. The flavor is well balanced with floral notes, grapefruit, nice hop bitterness, some funky element and a bit of brett sourness. Texture is a bit oily and it has a long bitter sour aftertaste. Good stuff. Curious about the longer barrel versions.

Bottle kindly donated Benzai, many thanks man. Hazy orange golden color with medium white head. Yeast, citrus hops, salt, fruity tartness in aroma. Fruity taste (grapes) with caramel, brett, citrus hops, resin, oak. Frutty tart finish with light citrus hoppy bitterness.I don’t care which style this beer should be, but it’s well balanced tasty beer.

Bottle, bought @Etre Gourmet. Pours clear golden with a large, creamy, white head. Aroma has sweet malts, citrus, oak, vanilla, grass. Medium carbonation, fine dry and full mouthfeel. Flavour has good malty sweetness, grapes, apple, oak. Lingering heavy bitterness. Lovely elegance.

0,5 gedeeld met lachneger. Fles van bierensite.nl goudgeel helder met redelijke kraag. Aroma is beetje bosbessen yoki-achtig. Niet heel hoppig in de geur. Smaak is wat fruitig met licht zure afdronk. Body had van mij iets steviger gemogen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,5l amber troebel.met een witte kraag. Geur in eerste instantie bosbessen, yoghurt, daarnaast ook houttonen en gist. Smaak begint zuur met een opbouwende zoetje, vruchtenyoghurt, gist en hout meer in de afdronk en gistbitter met salmiak als laatste staartje in de smaak. zeer bijzonder bier, smaak is in eerste instantie wel even wennen. Body is erg vol. Wat gebeurt er allemaal in mijn mond. Geen doordrinker, wel uniek.

(De Dochter van de Korenaar La Renaissance Barrel Aged: 1/2 Year) Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 7% Bright golden orange colour on the body, mostly clear, with two fingers of rich, off-white head, with very good retention. Some fruits on the aroma, mango, and lots of floral notes, some funky notes as well. Very bitter taste from the first sip, lots of floral notes, hops, a bit of funky character (from the aging?) a few touches of fruitiness struggling to surface. Medium thin body, good carbonation, tart and extremely dry palate. Very good even if it seems too bitter every now and then.

Vignale (2414) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Orangebrun mycket disig vätska, högt smutsvitt skum som bildar fin krona. Doft av syltad apelsin, citruszest, övermogen citrus och lite murrig jäst. Relativt syrlig och besk, citrussyrlig och besk men inte med så stor fruktighet, lite trä med en vaniljton. Inte olika andra ipor som faktisk innehåller någon citrusfrukt. lite väl syrlig kanske, annars trevlig och ett roligt experiment.
