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.

750ml in a Trip Karm glass. Beautiful Chardonnay driven oak on the nose. Nice balance of belgian yeast and hops, a little funk too on the palate. Very unique as I’ve experienced many chardonnay barrel aged brews, but none that showed as much chard as this one. Excellent.

Great aroma, cider like appearance. Can tell that it was aged in old oak chardonnay barrels.

Draft at Big Wood. Deep orange, yeasty, fruity. Body is sweet and rich. Farmhouse is muted, more sweet bw. alc builts. Tangy, grapefruit, not a standout.

Draft at Big Wood 2014. High carb, too much punch with the saison flavors. Sweet, thick... odd for these flavors.

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