Devgod opened a bottle while visiting NYC. Everything that you would expect in a nicely balanced Belgian-style IPA. The chardonnay barrel adds a little oak but does not overwhelm the taste. Excellent beer.

750 ml. Gigantic spongy head finally settles down to a thin disc of cream. Nose is earthy oak with some spicy-sweet white wine, citrus and toffee. Tastes of white wine, apricot, lemon hard candy, wood and a touch of cocoa. Some bubblegum in the long finish. Medium-plus body is soft, lightly astringent and shows a nice balance. .

Bottle from Binny’s Beverage Depot Glybourn, Chicago. Pours old gold and hazy with a lasting head. Interesting vinous aroma, contrasted by solid hop bitterness. Hints of berries, milk chocolate, wood, vanilla and citrus. Very complex..A wonderful beer.

B-. Pours a murky rust orange color with white head. The dry finish I believe comes from the champaign and I don’t particularly care for it

Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass sort of an orange with a white foam cap. Nose is citrus and wood. Medium body. Smooth in the mouth . Flavor is mostly citrus thought the barrel aging adds a lot of character. Very nice.
