Very pale golden pour. The nose is softly tart. Lactic with a bit of soft funk. A bit of light fruitiness and some cherry/apple fruit. A light restrained wheatiness along with a vineous sort of tart fruit. Pretty awesome stuff.
Peach, apricot, tart, oak, wheat, gentle sour edge, funky dry finish. his is quite unique and delicious, a bit boozy but very enjoyable and flavorful. robinvboyer (4698) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
On tap at bar hop. Another amsterdam triumph! Peaches, pears, earthy hops, citrus zest, and woody grasses. Citrus pithy bitterness, fresh stone fruit finish, with some acidic white wine qualities. Nice stuff. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2014

Gift from Guillaume and Kyle! Thanks guys! Served in a chalice. Pours a cloudy orange with a tall white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma: Sour cherries, peach, raisins. Very nice. Palate: Thick bodied, slightly tart and very very dry finish. Taste: strong alcohol taste. One of the better combinations of beer-in-wine-barrels that I’ve had.

Bottle. Pours light golden yellow with a white head. Nice and funky, with some light oaky notes, peach-like fruity notes, medium tartness, and a nice dry tart finish. Restrained barrel presence is what makes this one great. Loved it. j12601 (12673) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Sampled this at Campground Brewdown 2. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft funky musk on the nose. Soft acid, funky musk. A bit of funk and some charred barrel notes on the finish. jercraigs (10591) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2013
2013-06-22. Warmer temperature may have helped, as the fruit chracter comes out more, and the oak is just a touch less prominent than previous samples. +1 or 2 overall. Session Festival 2013

2013-06-18. Lightly hazy pastel/golden yellow body with a small white head that fades. Aroma of dry woody oak to start, vinous fruit, muted malt. Flavour has a good amount of oak up front which I don’t love but it fades enough as you go to let the pleasant fruity, lightly sour second wave come through. Dry lightly tannic oak character in the finish, vinous fruit blends intriguingly with vanilla tannins in the finish. Not particularly funky? Smooth average plus bodied bodied palate, soft moderate carbonation. Suits the beer well. 3+ Very interesting, the subtleties of the vinous fruit are lovely but the mild overall character means that the relatively moderate oak character is more prominent than it would be in a more boldly flavoured beer. The oak fades a bit the more quickly I drink it, giving just a touch more sourness as well. 7/3/7/3/15-16 On tap at Bryden’s, Toronto
On tap at Emmet Ray’s tap takeover. Tangy tart, a nice drinking ale. Belgian pale is basic and does not intrude. Pale coloured, no head. Nicely carbonated. 10% well hidden.
