COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chandelle Just as a pilot perfectly balances the climb and turn of his aircraft when performing the Chandelle, this oak-aged sour ale represents the perfect balance of fruit and funk. To create Chandelle, we filled oak barrels with Polycot (our Local Fields Series wheat beer brewed with locally grown apricots) and then added fresh apricots, brettanomyces yeasts and souring bacteria. Additional apricots were added to the barrels during the twelve month aging process. The result is a bright golden liquid with a fulsome apricot aroma. This beer delivers a zesty tang to the palate, balancing the fresh flavors of the fruit with a pleasantly sour taste created by the wild yeast and bacteria. Chandelle will age nicely for up to a year. Additional Information: Chandelle: Consists of a maximum climb, maximum bank combination to obtain the greatest altitude gain for a given airspeed and at the same time making a 180° course reversal.

750 c&c from Bine & Vinej. Pours hazy orange/gold with a very transient white head. Aroma of sourish, winey apricots. Med body. Flavor is very tart/sour and very apricot. A bit of wood. For some strange reason it matches well with spicy summer sausage.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours hazy gold with a transient white head and a sour apricot aroma. There is a funky brett-induced sour apricot flavor with a tart finish.

Boutip (6428) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2017
Bottle: Poured a clear golden/orangey color ale with a small foamy head with very little retention. Aroma of tart notes is dominant some oak and acidity also showing. Taste is also a mix of sour notes with some pronounced acidic flavours, some oak and light funky flavours. Body is about average with light carbonation. Not bad but lacking depth and complexity.

Cybercat (5959) - Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Pours hazy, barely translucent banana with a minimal eggshell head. Aroma offers tart fruit, not much else. Flavor is tart and dry, nice if nothing spectacular. Mouthfeel offers decent fizz and body. Do a barrel roll.

baraciisch (3311) - California, USA - MAY 11, 2017
Bottle from trade. Get your TUMs ready... clear golden orange in color... Aroma of apricots, lemon, funk, acidity... Flavor is intensely tart, like biting into an unripe apricot, apricot skins, pits, lemon tartness, some white wine barrel notes... enjoyable, but a little too tart ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thia somehow ended up in my box that i brought back from the RBSG 2015 in Portland, Oregon. Not sure how it ended up in there and that it took me one and a half years to find it. Too many beers in my cellar. From the 750 ml bottle, it pours a hazy blond color with a smallish white head. Nose is funky apricot. Medium body. Flavor is tart apricot and the finish has great funk. Really tasty and well balanced for a sour.

From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a foggy golden yellow with a thick white head that falls down slowly to a thin cap. The aroma is full of apricot and wine. There is a light grain and oak with this that is a little interesting. The flavor is good. There is a resounding tart apricot skin and flesh up front. The vinousness makes an appearance, and there is a hint of funk and vinegar. There is a nice barrel to it, and the fruit really does shine nicely. The mouth feel is crisp and clean with a bright effervescent carbonation and a lingeringly tart and sour apricot flesh lingering on the finish. I love the sourness on the back end of this one. It makes my mouth water and just want more!
