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.

Bottle provided by Alex over dinner...Pours a dark hazy peach with an off white head that good retention and nice streaky lacing...The aroma has a lot going on, tons of belgian yeast, oak, wine, and a bretty funk...The taste is very vinous, immediately I think I’m drinking wine, its very dry and has the feel of a chardonnay. The taste is a mix-mash of yeast, oak, and brett, has a sharp acidic bite I’m not a huge fan of. Interesting profile but not a flavor I enjoy. Its actually tough to describe it but oak, yeast and bret mixed tougher with a glass of wine gets you on the right path. Too much going on, I wouldn’t drink this again or recommend it.

sampled during the 2011 RBWG weekend pours hazy gold with a thick white head. Aroma is vinous and full of stale wood and leather. Flavor is super dry, loads of hops, dry yeast notes. Interesting

Outstanding craftmanship.Wafting wine and hops. Looks great though a light colour. Full mouthfeel. Very satisfying, with the patience of 6 months of barrel ageing, is it a double IPA or a great white wine.Thanks Michael for this and all you have done, and our wishes for your complete recovery.

Apple spritzer like flavor from the belgian yeast which accompanies the hoppy citrus rather well with a sour backdrop and nicely carbonated medium dry texture. As much as I dig sour beers, the aftertaste is kind of cloying. The chardonnay is definitely here in the mix. I would love to try this on tap!

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle at RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours murky yellow/orange, almost electric orange. Thin white head, very persistent. Nose is nettly, grassy citrus hops, navel orange and grapefruit - herbal notes. Flavours of lemon, tangerine, grassy hops, Champagne-like body/carbonation. Interesting, but I didn’t really groove on it....

From a bottle poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Strong sweet malty flavor with a lasting finish.

marcus (7994) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours golden with a rich off-white head and a peach aroma. There is a slightly sour fruity flavor with some carbonation and an oaky finish. There is a pleasantly warm alcohol trail. Overall, very complex and tasty.

Capped 750 from Bruisin Ales. Pours hazy orange gold with a creamy yellowish head. Aromas of oak and herb/floral hop. The flavor is fruity, floral vinous and oaky. The fruit suggests light stone fruit - like peach. Touch of pineapple. Damn tasty.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Stellar freaking beer! lightly hazy gold color, white head. Aroma is loaded with white grapes, hops, yeast, sweet yeast, and spice. Flavor is a blend of hops, sweet malt, the chardonnay barrels offer such creaminess and yeasty notes, great spice. Awesome stuff.
