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.

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Many thanks to Jack for the CO obscurity. Pours clearish gold with a creamy, off-white head. Some ripe fruits in the nose, light alcohol, faint caramel, tangerine. Medium sweet flavor with juicy, ripe citrus fruits, doughy bread, toasty sugars, more tangerines. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Moderate warmth to finish, light doughy malts, tangerines. Very decent.

Golden orange in color with a white head. Sweet malt nose of bread and hints of caramel. Some wine and oak, a touch of pear, light apple, and grape. There’s a light funk to the flavor, but still somewhat sweet and fruity. Pear, apple, grape, and perhaps some golden raisin. Bread, mild caramel, wine, oak, and a very slight tartness.

BBB63 (5941) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 27, 2013
DLD 2012: Hazy coppery hue with a nice lasting head. Has notes of grassy and slight herbal hops, moderate white wine and oak, some nice farmhouse notes with just a touch of funk and earthiness. Very refreshing mouth feel and lightly dry woody finish. I really liked this and was happy it was not some sour’d bomb or over hopped version of the style.

TheBeerGod (5165) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Bottle # 02898 from Summer 2012. Pours a hazy amber with a tall, foamy tan head. Aroma is woody and wine-like with earthy notes, yeast, grains and ripe fruits. Taste is wood, earthy notes, yeast, fermented fruits, grape skins, wine notes, sweet malt, toasted grains and caramel. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation and light stickiness. Oak barrels more pronounced during the finish and there’s a touch of coconut as a results. Add more yeast, ripe fruits, earthy notes, straw, toasted grains, caramel, and wine. Nice beer! Based on it being almost a year old, this has aged well!

750 ml. bottle from a beer club membership. Pours copper with a white head. Floral and grassy notes mixed with the funky aroma from the yeast. The barrel aging adds a bit of structure and complexity.
