Deville is our hefty Belgian barleywine brewed in e summer of 2011. This version has Ben allowed to mature and to gracefully sour via wild secondary fermentation and extensive aging, spending nine months in an apple brandy barrel. art, wine-like, amazing complex.

3oz on tap at the brewpub. Hazy dark red orange color. Thin off-white ring of head, kind of bubbly. Leaves good bits of lace. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp light soft lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Fruity aroma, some wood tannic flavors, light spice. Some baked apple aromas. Moderate sweet taste, light bit of tannic, moderate bitter, light tart. Light bit of heat on the end, not bothersome though, appropriate for the ABV. Decent brandy belgian strong. Complex. Not fantastic, though.

Taster pour at Big Barrel Tarrarel 2013. Translucent orange-brown. not much head, not much carbonation. Big apple tones certainly come through. Sweet, sour green apple tones. An interesting dessert beer. The ABV is not a factor, drinks pretty easy. Nice, unique.

On tap at Vintage, pours a murky brownish amber with a creamy white head and lacing, the aroma has a huge amount of tart apples and bourbon, the flavor has a front end of heavy tart apples with the brandy making a strong appearance in the finish, sure doesn’t hide the 11% all that well but doesn’t really matter because it all works well together.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours hazy deep amber with a thin tan head. Nose is sharp apple cider vinegar, with dominates along with some sweet malt. Not a bad nose, just one-note. Taste is pronounced sour apple cider vinegar, which comes off as too much at first. It settles in a bit as it warms, with the brandy showing itself a bit more, along with a gentle, smooth woodiness and a tart finish. Well-carbonated and really big bodied. Slick. My favorite barrel-aged beer from Vintages so far.

On tap at Vintage Brewpub Big Barrel Tararrel. Clear copper with a lacy tan head. Somewhat sour aroma with apple, oak, yeast and spices. Taste is very sour with oak, apple, brandy, mild tannins, cherry, yeast and spices. Once again the apple brandy barrel is a winner!
