Farmhouse ale aged in Adelsheim Vineyard chardonnay barrels with brettanomyces cultured from drie fonteinen in Beersel, Belgium. We believe this beer will continue to develop in the bottle over time.

mathieuc (3328) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2016
Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves pretty good lacing. Nose is of oak, fresh spices and wine. Taste is dry, oaky and winey as well. The barrel aging seems to have tsken over the beer completely. Medium body, medium carbonation and of course it feels vinous. Alright but a bit overdone maybe.

bottle shared by tom10101, thanks bro! pours hazy/cloudy light golden with a very nice creamy white head, nice lacing. fruity peppery apricots, flowery bretts, potent wood - slightly winey; thyme, almost funky lemons, chalk, salt. moderate carbonation, light body, dry woodsy-spicy-citrusy finish. strong barrel contribution in this - what could have been - a soft fruity tart BA ale.

vyvvy (5858) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Sampled at Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2015 - Pours golden yellow with a white head. The aroma is sour with some onions and citrus. It has a medium crisp body. The taste is weird with some sourness, onion, funk, garlic, pale malt, citrus and is pretty smooth. This seemed strange from Commons.
