750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by Brigadier). Looks good; a semi-transparent golden orange with white head. Smells good too; Chardonnay, oak, and Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells with a fairly sweet backbone. Nice and smooth on the palate. Good beer, and doesn’t drink anywhere near the abv. Ratman197 (15766) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2013

Hoppy. Nice. This is a very nice beer dr a new to me brewer. Had a bottle with the beer geeks of NW arkansas. Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle shared. Taste was bits of white wine, some soft fruits, sweet creamy maltiness, and a slightly bit tart, floral, oak. Very complex in that I could not figure out all what was going on. Chardonnay was probably the front runner of the flavor though. This was actually a detriment to the beer as I, for one of the first times ever, though a beer was a bit much and somewhat brash. Good, but probably not worth the crazy price tag that it demanded. alexsdad06 (11414) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by?? Pours a hazy golden amber color with a large white head. The aroma and flavor have some sweet malts, vanilla, oak, vinous/Chardonnay character, yeast, mild tart with a light herbal note. The finish is dry with some additional fruit character. Interesting, would like to revisit.

Bottle, pours golden, aroma is much like a wine. Some grapes in there. Flavour was winy and a bit sour, overall interesting offering Butters (4062) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Cloudy straw pour with ring of bright white head. Bready triple esk aroma wiyh also bready flavor notes and refined lemon/vanilla sweetness. Reminds me of a lemon cookie. Pretty good, but def not worth thr price. DiarmaidBHK (6180) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours dark yellow and very cloudy with an inch of white foam. Big Chardonnay notes on the nose. Lots of the Belgian yeast thing on the tongue along with the wine thing. Has a warming quality on the finish. Very nice. magsinva (1493) - Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2013
bottle from DiarmaidBHK - Pours cloudy golden with a finger of white head. Aroma has the influence of the Chardonnay barrels with a wheaty yeasty thing going on. Taste is sweet, it hides its alcohol well. Palate is creamy. Overall, solid. tgncc (3147) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2013
