COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Melange a Trois begins with a wonderfully big Strong Belgian-Style Blonde Ale and moves into the extraordinary category through an additional 6 month French Oak Chardonnay Wine Barrel maturation. The essence of Chardonnay permeates while a subtle sweetness remains from the Ale itself. Oak tannins combine to create a fascinating mesh of dry, sweet, and wine-like character. One of our favorites!

Cloudy gold pour, big fluffy white head. Aroma is crazy chardonnay! Unfiltered chardonnay and belgian yeast. Flavor tastes like Newton’s unfiltered chardonnay, very light bitterness, light prickly carbonation and some yeast. Good stuff. Really a cool beer.
