750 mL bottle. Lightly hazy golden. Smells of wine barrel, oak, earthy and fruity yeast notes. Tastes of oak, wine, and aggressive fruity yeast flavors. A little bit of sweet doughy malt. Earthy yeast notes and a little oak in the finish. Lingering fruitiness and wine barrel. Medium body. Excellent.

a barrel aged version of one of my favorites, one of their best really, just an awesome expression of brett on its own, and in this instance, woody and a little more dense, a little more depth, all seemingly in service of the brett, giving it more to hang on to and new corners to expand into, so funky and interesting, but also kind of simple with the basic pale malt base, its next level! sunny golden colored and pretty clear, with a bright white head on it and lots of bubbles rising up. aroma of familiar brett, i have known this strain or mix of strains in other de la senne strains, drying, farmy, wet animal dankness, even a touch spice. here the oak lends a white wine character, light vanilla, peach or dried apricot, and cracked pepper. its not overly woody, its still totally brett driven, but there is more depth and body to it, equally mature as the original always seems to be for me, but maybe even more well refined, no sediment really in here like i recall in the base beer, and there is just slight tartness here. pineapple notes too, a grassy hop thing, and some serious oak tannins that come on late. dry and just a little heavier than the original, the right balance between complex and simple, drinks like a funky belgian pale meets a rustic saison. i love de la senne, and this is among their very best beers, i am blown away every time i get to drink their beer, i wish more of them came around...

Bottled 6th of April, 2017.
Best by 6th of April, 2019.
Gentle to moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch white head over a light amber body with some nice lacing. Nose of funk (cellar floor, wet horse blanket, and a bit of blue cheese), grapefruit, and oak. Taste of grapefruit and oak. Good feel and overall, a real nice example of how brettanomyces bruxellensis works.
