COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red label. This tripel has been aged for 9 months in oak barrels that were previously used to mature red wine. During the maturation period in our climate controlled barrel room, the beer picks up new flavors from the barrels and their previous contents. The origin of the barrel and the grape varietal it contained both contribute their own nuances.

Cloudy amber beer, good off white head. Nice minerally wine nose. Palate starts crispy and a little dry but turns softer. Lovely fresh wood with a nice winey red berry fruit balance. Really quite winey - woody. Dry finish. Very nice indeed and very drinkable.
