COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first beer produced in the Reserve Series, Melange A Trois begins with a wonderfully big Strong Belgian-Style Blonde Ale and moves into the extraordinary category through an additional 6 month French Oak Chardonnay Wine Barrel maturation. The essence of Chardonnay permeates while a subtle sweetness remains from the Ale itself. Oak tannins combine to create a fascinating mesh of dry, sweet, and wine-like character. One of our favorites!

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of bu11zeye. Comes as "Nebraska Brewing Company Reserve Series Chardonnay Blonde". Pours golden with a slight haze and a dense white head leaving some lacework. Spice woody nose - quite interesting. Solid body, sweet exotic fruits, quite some underlying wood and a salty and tart edge. No hops though. Very interesting - the wine barrel really shows. 130910

Hazy gold beer, good white head. Light very dry palate. Sweet sugary fruit salad sweets. But it’s hard to swallow as the beer is so chalky dry. Finishes frothy and very dry with obvious alcohol. A bit of a mess.

4.2
Leighton (21258) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2010
Bottle at Governors Island BrewFest. This beer was fantastic. Pours a cloudy gold with a slight, creamy white head. Pungent aroma of white wine, fruits and oak. Flavor is quite sweet with prominent alcohol/wine notes. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. A bit herbal. Finishes sweet with lingering chardonnay notes. Very, very good.

3.3
mcberko (17847) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden / blond with a medium white head. Aroma of biscuits, white wine, brett, and oak. Flavour begins with lychee-like light fruits, transitioning to the chardonnay white wine, and then some yeast notes on the finish. The ABV is well-concealed at first, though burns at the end the more you drink. Not my idea of the best white wine incorporated BA beer. Quite thin, boozy and very carbonated. Still, solid stuff.
