Pours a pale honey gold with a milky, dense few fingers of head... perfect retention and healthy abundant beading.
The nose is pretty imposing - ripe figs, white grapes, soft woods, faint cherry, lilac, boozy honey, delicious.
Translates quite nicely onto the tongue. Big white grape notes, some vinegar-y booze that doesn’t dominate, light fruits, floral bits. I can’t even begin to dissect the flavors without considering the PERFECT mouthfeel. I can’t stress this enough. All these flavors occupy the best consistency I’ve ever encountered in the style. It makes for such a lovely beer to drink.
Extremely well done.

If you like chardonnay you will love this one...super dry! Looks like a normal belgian golden, yellow and cloudy with a large white head. Very dry, acidic, oaky, much like a good chardonnay. It’s balanced with the sweetness of a strong belgian ale. Truly a great beer and great with food. Should be drank at around 50 degrees, not too cold.
