COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chardonnay Barrel aged version. 750ml bottle only. This version of Hop God is a fascinating, big, bold Belgian-style Tripel hopped in very high amounts to concentrate citrus, grapefruit and floral aromatics in the nose. The addition of Chardonnay barrel aging adds further dimension and oak tannins to an already wonderfully complex Ale - bringing to mind tropical fruits and peach.

Thanks riversideak! Little oaky chard nose, some spicy belgian yeast. Sweet bubble gum becomes spicy pepper, good interplay of the wine, little dank toward the finish. Very tasty beer, missing the hops though.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Woody chardonay notes up front, some belgian yeast esters, light hints of hops - citrus, floral, grass here and there. Pours hazy golden orange, nice head sheets of lace. Chardonay, belgian yeast sweetness, honey, coconut, light hoppy finish. Hides the ten percent well. More belgian than belgo ipa but well done. Fruity finish. Lingering wine barrel.

750ml capped, thanks Alex. Pours a hazed golden with tight white head and moderate lacing. Nose is light on the hop aromas, yet balanced with plenty of Belgium esters and as it warms and opens up I pick up light oak and white grapes. Not much in the way of hops, but digging the barrel and Belgian character. Slightly boozey as it warms.
