Light pale golden body with thin but fluffy white head. Nose reminds of a white wine with lemons and some pepper. Very interesting blend of dry white in the mouth with a buttery flavor. Both come across in mouthfeel too. Some hints of various spices from the back of the spice rack. Not one I’d go to everyday, but what a treat.

Pours a dark golden body with a thin head. Funky aroma and a super nice taste, rich of malty taste.

You never forget your first love. This beer has just aboit everything going for it. Aroma of white wine, coriander, grape, oak and just a bit of bread. Taste is smooth and incredibly buttery from the barrels, oak shines from start to finish. Best american triple I’ve had since 1990 always.

Shared with Claudia on our first night in RVA. Clear golden pour with quick fading white head. Typical triple sweetness and character with vanilla and oak. The vinous white grapey character is quite enjoyable. Pretty good treatment of an already good beer.

Almost clear gold beer, decent white head. Smooth palate, mild fine carbonation. Smooth malts, light cream and a trace of honey. Mild vanilla oak and mild grape. Good white wine tang. Well integrated mild orange. Pinch of spice. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Mild winey linger. Lovely stuff, really nicely joined up and the last mouthful was as good as the first, lovely.

"Via ggrumet. Pretty obvious barrel influence for only being 3 months in the wood, according to the label. Grapes and oak come through, but as well as the fruitiness and yeastiness from the base beer. Still pretty gassy, yet smooth and covers up the abv well. Not sure if it’s worth a hike in price from the non-barreled version, but it was definitely nice to try."
