12 oz. bottle to snifter. Pours clear bright amber with a quick white soapy head that dissipates to a faint wispy film. Aroma has a lovely sweet tartness of wood vanilla and sour sugar (very subtle and smooth). Taste is crisp and clean with a bitter subtle tartness of apples and grape peel and leather that leaves you with dry woodiness. Palate is medium and refreshingly crisp with a gentle carbonation and leaving a drying finish. Very smooth and enjoyable beer with an awesome balance being 8.5 % alcohol. I would consider buying again!

Tasted at the Triple Rock Sour and Barrel Aged Fest on 2/12/2011. This Belgian Strong Ale pours a medium amber orange gold color from the bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, tons of oak and brett. A medium bodied Belgian Strong Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, oak and funk. The hops are earthy and floral. Very smooth. Nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Clear golden pour with white head. Slightly sour acidic notes, which I attributed to the wine barrels. Didn’t really delve too deeply into this one, but It was definitely not worth the price.

Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours hazy orange with a slight head. Aroma is rich and sour. Med body. Flavor is sour. But like a mix of peach and oak. I’m not getting much wine here. But it is very astringent. This is fairly complex. Delicious.
