COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is the premier offering in a collaborative series between two South Carolinians—one went to California to make wine, the other stayed home to make beer! We aged this Tripel for 9 months in French oak barrels that were used to mature the 2008 vintage of Whetstone Bella Vigna Pinot Noir. A refermentation in the bottle creates the tiny bubbles that bring this exciting fusion of the brewers’ and winemakers’ crafts to life.

Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2012
(Bottle) Pours hazy orange amber with a large off-white head. The aroma holds wood shop, juicy fruits (pineapples and peers as the most notable) and herbs alongside a dry floral note. Undertones of wet soil, damp basement, touch of barnyard, dough, crackers, hay, subtle spices, almonds, grapes, light phenols and a whisper of sugar. Fancy, dryish nose. The flavour is light sweet to dry, light to medium bitter and light acidic with notes of wood, grapes, grapefruit, fruits, spices, funk, crackers, herbs, grass and a touch of phenols. The mouthfeel is round and light sticky (without being that sweet) with a medium, fizzy carbonation. Woodsy, dry malty, fancy hoppy, light phenolic, dry herbal, light dirty and grapefruity finish. Medium bodied.
