Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 09-19-2003

A blonde ale fermented with a special strain of yeast, then aged in French oak chardonnay barrels. Flavors of wine and oak absorb into the brew throughout twelve months of aging. During this aging process, a secondary fermentation occurs using a yeast strain disliked by most brewers and winemakers called Brettanomyces.

Appearance – Pours a clear golden color with a very nice head and good lacing.

Smell – Chardonnay, oak, brett, and just a touch of honey.

Taste – A very nice chardonnay, oak, and hint of lemon. Nice!

Mouthfeel – Good carbonation, dry, not too sour. A very good sour!

Drinkability – This is a very good sour. Went down fast and easy.
