COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Greek epithet for Dionysus, Eiraphiotes means "Twice-Born." This Imperial Pilsner was a stellar beer right out of the conditioning tank, but its second birth from chardonnay barrels has transformed it into a truly magnificent creation. Very Limited Production.

Butters (3733) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Sampled at the Richmond Gathering 19. Clear golden pour with ring of white head. This is surprisingly good. The chardonnay comes through, and the base is good with a tinny, grassy, honey, sweet, but not too sweet brew. Not syrupy like many other imp pils iíve had. Iím impressed, even though I wouldnít want to drink very much of it.

Spicy cumin, oak, nose, light overripe orange undercurrent. Clear amber, medium head. Rye flavor, bready with an orange accent. Balanced, spicy, wonderful. Excellent

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
750 mL bottle courtesy of Kinz at the 19th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Pours a clear copper color with a thin frothy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel, herbal notes, grapes. The taste is stone fruits, bread, grapes, bitter hop finish. Tannic and vinous, slightly astringent. Medium bodied.

RBG 19. Bottle. Golden orange with thin head and light lacing. Smells like caramel, honey, and a citrus note- boozy. Tastes like caramel. Very thick and syrupy.

egajdzis (5266) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Dark golden color with a small, white head that left lighter lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey, vanilla, toasted oak, and some Chardonnay notes. Taste of toast, toffee malts, vanilla, citrus, wood, and a dry chardonnay finish.

Damico (2484) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Pours golden orange with a white head. Aroma of malts forward totally and some wheat notes. The flavors bring pilsner malts showcased forward with chardonnay spiciness, light sweet notes, and a fairly dry bitter ending.

This Beer is really good, but it changed from the first pour to the last. The first pour obviously has some fruit on it, but itís quite dry on the tongue with a pleasant oaky complexity. Towards the end of the bottle itís gets a bit cloudier and sweeter, but not sweet comparatively. I prefer the end of the bottle.

I can see why the ratings are mixed on this. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A sweet nose of dusty lemon and barrel. The flavor is vinous with wood, some lemon and zesty oranges, pretty mellow. Easygoing but flavorful. Nice.
