perennial is on to some really net level stuff. the ones with the wine grapes always excite me, and this is one of the best going right now. there are two really impressive elements to this one, the first is the barrels. you really get the acidity and tannins of the chardonnay specifically, tons of flavor from the wood, but just as much from the wine. it cuts through the somewhat more substantial wheaty malt base perfectly, and really brings out the grape flavor in the beer too. the other amazing feature here is the brett, and while it might not seem all the way fermented down here, it has a really impressive complexity to it, notes of melon and lime, both go perfectly with the wine elements, and very drying. the beer is more turbid than blonde though, and it seems like there is still a bit of residual sugar from the fruit in this, like it might be better in a year or something, a notoriously slow worker, maybe there wasnt enough patience to let the brett complete the job. its close though, and the flavor is amazing, its just not all dropped out and cleaned up yet. i love the wood profile in the finish, smooth and sweet, a hint of honey with the fruit, and a bit of sourness as well for an all brett beer. i loved this overall, got a very earthy natural springtime vibe from it, and frankly it was gone way too quickly. i hope they keep making this one, its one of their best!
