3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap poured a clear red hue w/ quickly diminishing head. Moderate aroma of chardonnay and oak. Initial flavor light sweet with almost no noticeable sour in the finish. Very light belgian yeast and only a hint of funk the flavor of the chardonnay barrel is the focus of this beer. Light bodied, watery texture, soft carbonation. Drinks like a wine cooler, without a noticeable dryness this 7.5% will sneak up on you.

Bottle shared @ CBC Clerkenwell. Picked this up at the wonderful Mr. Bís in Denver. The pourís 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.

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. Thereís 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.
