COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BATCH 26 (blended in November 2016) was distributed as follows: Dry white wine (Pouily Fumé & Sancerre) 78% New Oak Medium Toast 22% The aroma of Batch 26 is refreshing, floral and slight acidy (that comes from the white wine barrels). The characteristic aroma of vanilla and smoked oak is associated with cognac and in the background, a touch of malt and caramel scent. The taste can be describes as explosive in which the wood tannins dominate. The full-bodied taste of this batch pushed the La Trappe Quadrupel to the background, yet it is definitely present. In addition, you taste the dominant flavours of honey, sweet caramel and fine oak. The stimulating mouthfeel comes from the carbonation. Wood tannins also play a major role. In short, a batch with a full-bodied taste. A suitable autumn beer that still gives us a feel of summer due to its lovely scent associations.

Zlotta (4248) - Hagen, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2018
Sampled from 0.375 l bottle from 'Craftbeerspezialist', bottled in September 2016. Slightly hazy, dark amber with an off-white head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity and a little woody aroma of caramel, sultanas, honey and vanilla with a touch of wood. Quite sweet, malty, yeasty-spicy and a bit woody taste of caramel, honey, clove, vanilla, sultanas and some oak, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, rather yeasty-spicy and slightly woody-dry finish. Medium body, quite effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Quite nice, not my favourite of the series though.
