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!

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of bu11zeye. Comes as "Nebraska Brewing Company Reserve Series Chardonnay Blonde". Pours golden with a slight haze and a dense white head leaving some lacework. Spice woody nose - quite interesting. Solid body, sweet exotic fruits, quite some underlying wood and a salty and tart edge. No hops though. Very interesting - the wine barrel really shows. 130910
