Draft pour at oakquinox 2014. Semi cloudy orange amber pour, with an off white head. Malty bread, some fruitiness, mild vinous, spice, oak, and notes of butter. This doesn’t stand out to much.

Back log; from at least two years ago. Haven’t had too many of this style, nice to see them brew this. amber color with a whitish head. Aroma was like a mild wine, with a nice uniqueness too it. Light hopping. Flavor had some apple, fruit and wine notes. Some grain. A solid and enjoyable brew.

Draught at the restaurant watching the Tour de California. I’m not a big fan of Biere de Gardes but this was phenomenal; I think the wine barrels really made it special. It pours very still. A ruby-orange and brown colour with a small off-white head the quickly disappears/ The aroma is pink grapefruit, chardonnay and strawberries. Definitely fits the biere de garde style from the earthy, metallic notes (not bad, that’s just my crutch for IDing the style). Definitely white wine notes that trend from a dry chardonnay to Mosel Rieslings. Lasting wine finish.

Sampled at City Tavern with brewmaster Dave sitting next to me. Kinda cool. Pours a bright orange. Crisp with a lingering flavor. Nice light hoppy notes along with a touch of vanilla.

Oak aged version of the Tripel. I liked this one much better - the wood dried out the syrupy sweetness and also calmed down some of the carbonation. I actually enjoyed the dry hopped version even better that was also available when we were at the brewpub.

ekoerper (589) - Iowa, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Aroma: fruity and quite vinous, bready yeast note, spicy hops, light pepper character, touch of booze. Pours a slightly hazy light amber color, off-white head is lasting and leaves a nice coating of lacing. Flavor: toasty malts, lots of wine notes, fruity esters, plums, some pepper and spice, earthy and a soft acidity, alcohol is noticeable but mellow. Medium body and carbonation. Very enjoyable brew.
