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.

The farmhouse post to shorten a barrel really gives a great funky taste. Unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"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."

Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2014
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.

Bottle share thanks to MK. Appearance: finger of white head that does not last, straw yellow, cloudy. Aroma: wine, oak, grapes. Palate: light body, thin texture, dry finish. Taste: sweet grape fruit start into a good amount sour/tartness. Overall, super good balance, aroma and tastes are phenomenal, love the heavy grape.
