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.

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Cloudy gold pour, fluffy white head. Lots going on here. I get the chardonnay flavors, I get a nice yeasty, bready note. But there is something odd. Vegetal, herbal almost. This beer is almost fantastic, but almost bad at the same time.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. Pours a pretty clear yellow appearance with a white head. A bit woody, white grape, pear, a touch grainy aroma. Fairly dry, grape/apple fruity, somewhat oaky flavor. Weird idea that didn’t turn out all that well.

Bottle thanks to carolinakevin, thanks! Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light wine note with some light fruit, earthy yeast with a backing sweet. Flavor begins with sweet grains, light fruit and grass with a bit of wine in the finish.
