"Chardonnay barreling makes this a wood and fruit (grape) forward belgian ale with pretty mellow abv and spice profile. Pretty enjoyable. Almost saison-like, but a little fruitier than most. Dry, bittersweet finish."

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On the nose a little funk compliments a vinous aroma. A pumpkin amber pour with short lived off-white head and no lacing. The palate is an explosion of sweet and sour. Interesting. Sweet to begin with and quickly turning to a citrus sour finish. Not what I was expecting. Wood, white wine, fruit sweetness, citrus, slight sourness. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Overall, an unusual but a rewarding Belgian strong ale.

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.

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.
