Pours a golden color with three fingers of fluffy white foam. Great yeasty esters, soft honey, coconut, caramel, vanilla, pear, citrus peel, good carbonation. Not my favorite style but was surprised at how much I actually enjoyed sipping this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle (chardonnay barrel version) pours hazy yellow orange with medium head. Nose is bready grain, buttery oak, some lemon, yeast spice. Taste is similar with lots of buttery chardonnay barrel influence and yeasty belgian spice, doughy grain and toasty crust. Finishes with a mix of some sweet yeasty spice and orange peel, and dry oaky lemon.
