COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Triple Style Ale aged in Moscatel de Setýbal barrel for 1 year.
There are so many barrel aged beers around, but why is it that most of the time barrel aging is reserved for massive, dark beers? We thought that weíd give it a try to create a complex barrel aged beer out of something completely different than the usual imperial stout or barley wine. So we took our triple style ale, Xbeeriment Leo, and aged it for a year in a Moscatel de Setýbal barrel. The result is an astonishingly complex beerÖÖ..

CBC. Totally unique experience; trippel is not my style but the grapes and barrel adds spicyness and an amazing complexity otherwise only found in Cantillon, and here its without the horse!

On tap at CBC, Copenhagen. Light haze on this gold beer, little off white head. Palate is crisp and dry. Minerals. Emulsion paint. A nice amount of sweet dessert wine but the that paint flavour, that sometimes happens with barrels, is a little too dominant. Very dry crisp finish. An interesting beer that could have been great.
