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.

Bottle from Tipples, corked and caged, 2013 Project poured on 1/10/15. Price was a bit steep at $37.99 so better be good. Pours hazy golden orange colored with lots of bubbles lacing the glass and just a white tiny thin ring of head on top. Aroma of barnyard funk, vinegar, sweet fruits, lots of oak, hint of vanilla and a bit of a menthol note that I don't like. Flavor is nice. Sweet and sour up front, notes of honey, vinegar, lots of sweet fruit, tart lacto, dry oak on the finish, bit of lemony tartness. Definite Chardonnay like influence with vicious warming notes throughout. Don't get a lot of dog flavor here but what sweet fruit notes are present (and there are a lot) are very nice. Spritzy carbonation, dry finish, medium light body (very light for the high ABV). Overall a nice sour from a brewery that is mostly hit or miss for me.
