zmanzorro (128) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 On tap at both Common Table at the launch party and at Barcadia in Dallas. Nice golden color, not much head or lacing. Complex taste with very notable fruitiness. Chardonnay barrel adds an interesting level of flavor. Great overall beer especially if you prefer Belgians. Tried this again some time later and tasted very differently. Lowering the overall rating for lack of consistency, even though initial tasting was great.

Tap. Deep golden with small head. Sweet and yeast forward with some light Belgian spice. Grape and faint oak. Not very boozy at all.

Pours a hazy golden color with a foamy white head. Notes of herbs, lavender, bubble gum, fresh air, and oak. Nice balance and mouthfeel.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Beer pours cloudy honey color with a nicely retained off white head. Aromas hit the right notes for a Belgian strong, nice, yeasty, earthy notes with some light caramel and herbs. I not really getting the barrel aging in the nose. Taste is quite tasty. Nice wet wood sensation. This is an excellent beer. Kudos to Deep Ellum Brewing. Prost!!!

Enjoyed at BTBF 2015. Pours a cloudy orange brown color. Honey, wood, Oak and yeast on the nose. Almost wheat. Dry honey flavor that is sweet and grainy.

TXBadger (1890) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Spices, herbs, and some grapes on the nose from the must; follows onto the palate. The booze is pretty well hidden in this one. Pretty solid brew.

Tap at Craft and Growler - a bit of an odd beer, here - it’s quite sweet, but also somewhat sour, with a punch of acetone through the middle that lingers through the finish and is amplified by the alcohol presence -  bit of white grape late - one of those beers where you can’t tell if it’s infected or supposed to taste like this - odd.

kevinator (1340) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2013
A pretty good stab at the Belgians by a relatively new TX brewer. Belgian yeast and pear aromas. Golden and clear color with a nice white head. Good soft and smooth palate with average carbonation. Fruity esters were really pronounced on this one with some spice on the back end. The white wine grape juice stood out. Also a little tart at times. Hops presence was minimal. Good stuff.
