Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: CraftyHusker on 01-03-2014

At 10.1% ABV, this beer is hopped late with a heavy dose of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops that impart a white wine fruitiness. The base beer has a fruit character with hints of pear and moderate spiciness derived from the Belgian yeast strain used. It is then aged on a mix of French oak chips soaked in chardonnay during post-fermentation to simulate barrel aging.

On tap at the brewery. Pours bright orange with a thick head. Nice unfiltered look. Smells of pears/apples. Taste is similar, with some citrus notes and a slightly dry, yet very smooth finish. Drinkability is off the charts for such a big beer. My favorite selection from this brewery, a must have if you are ever in central Nebraska. They have plans to bottle this one, among others, in 2014. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for it.
