COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer began its life as a classic Belgian Strong Blonde Ale. But after having spent 2 years in a Moscatel barrel, being transferred to a neutral maturation vessel to be matured with raspberries AND being inoculated with brettanomyces, it’s something else..... Enjoy!

MPA (782) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 3, 2013
Draught. Red with pink head. Aroma of grapes, cherry, wood and wine. Flavour is just awesome with a great balance between sweet berries and a dry wooden note in the finish, which also has some bitterness and tartness. I could drink this beer daily for the rest of my life, but I’d probably get drunk as Hell, as this beer hides it’s high alcohol percentage.

jackl (4291) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Keg @ CBC 2013. The pour’s red with a tiny off-white head. The aroma’s tart raspberry jam. Wheaty funk. Mild piss. The taste is brett, sweet jammy fruits. Tart raspberry. More piss. Wonderfully vibrant flavors. Simple, but very tasty. I assumed this would’ve been rougher considering the high ABV. Overall, very well done.
