Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: largadeer on 06-24-2011

Strong blond beers were aged in fresh Chardonnay barrels for three months and then additionally aged with dried Adriatic white figs and Spanish lemon peel. Aromas of sweet malts, figs, raisins and citrus zest greet you in the nose. Hints of Chardonnay grapes, lemon peel and sweet figs roll across the palate, leading to crisp lemon sharpness in the finish that will leave a lingering sweetness on the tongue.

poured from tap into a tulip. Pours a nice blonde color with a real foamy head.

Very zesty aromas of spices, lemon curds, some raisins and tart citrus tones. There is definitely a sourness to it, but it's slightly tart than it is outright sour.

Medium/full bodied with a real nice and smooth feel. Good flavor depth with notes of lemon curds, spices, and tart citrus'.

This was a really nice and well balanced beer. Had a nice tartness to it as opposed to being downright sour.

Thanks, Aaron! Served in a Cascade goblet, also courtesy of Aaron. Pours a moderate golden color. Nose has a good amount of Chardonnay with backing fruit and acid. Flavor has light fig and touch of lemon. Very dry and crisp with a nice acidity. Very easy to drink and the alcohol is almost completely masked. I never would have guessed that this was pushing 10%.

A - Pours a clear, medium orange with a very fizzy light tan head that fades very quickly.

S - Citrus fruit, chardonnay, apples, oak, and fig.

T - Sweet subtle fruit, flowers, more oak and chardonnay, some slight tartness.

D - Lots of carbonation with a lighter body.

O - Smells more complex, but still tastes very nice. This one should develop nicely.
