COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Elevation’s first barrel aged beer is made in the tradition of the farmhouse beers of the Wallonia region of Belgium. Eclectic, funky, and original this is the first beer in our Double Black Diamond Series of seasonal barrel-aged beers. The Signal de Botrange is the highest tower on the highest point in Belgium and we hope our Signal de Botrange will help elevate your perception of beer, much like the beers of Belgium did for us.

kidmartinek (3640) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Deep copper colour. Lots of bubbles hold a small, white ring head. Good sour aroma. Flavor is doused with Belgian candy sugar. Burnt caramel and yeasty notes follow. Still prett ly good for all the sweetness.

wchesser (1151) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Slightly cloudy orange brown. Funky nose with so peppery esters, white wine. Fairly malty, with some peppery spice, white wine barrel character, and tart finish, with unfortunate bruised apple acetylaldehyde.

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Golden, orange and hazy appearance with a small white head. Aroma of tart fruits, citrus zest, funky yeast, vanilla, wine, and light oak. Similar flavor, vinous, mild sweetness and light bitterness. Pretty tasty.

Bottle shared at Hunahpu Day in Tampa. Thanks! Golden amber pour with a medium fluffy head that lasted. Decent lacing spider webs. Aroma of white wine, green grapes, wood barrel, cereal, and straw. The taste was white wine, slight funk, slight spice, dough and apples/pears. Light body, good solid carb. FInish is wine barrel for sure.

Bottle shared @ CBC Clerkenwell. Picked this up at the wonderful Mr. B’s in Denver. The pour’s medium amber with a small head. The nose sickly sweet bruised apple. Pear. Strong buggy wood. The taste is wood heavy. Wine barrels? White grape. Some toffee-dipped apple. Medium body, slick mouthfeel. Overall, not my thing. Overly sweet and one-dimensional.
