Bottled March 19, 2013.

Beer is dark golden in colour with a moderately-sized white head that fades steadily.

The chardonnay barrels dominate the nose. Apple and pear are very strong. A bit of oak. Although it is in there, I do not detect any brett in the nose.

The brett does come through in the flavour, imparting a slight musty, earthy funk to the big apple and pear flavours that come screaming through. Some oak and a very slight tartness. Booze is more noticeable than expected. A bit too much like boozy apple juice.

Full bodied, moderately carbonated. Soft.

Overall, not great. Decent but the barrel is too strong and the beer too weak.

This is the ninth adventure brew from Amsterdam Brewery, sold only at their brewery store where a close friend was lucky enough to pick up three and give me one to review. It was brewed in February 2012 then aged in Chardonnay Barrels for one year. I am still relatively new to beer tasting but I will do my best.

I poured mine into an over-sized wine glass at slightly above fridge temperature, maybe 40 degrees.

A - Pours a deep amber to orange color with haze caused by it being unfiltered. A quarter inch thick pure white head is present which dissipates in about a minute leaving a thin film. Lacing is fairly even and well retained, small pores open up quickly but do not continue to grow.

S-The aroma of the chardonnay is very predominant here, scents of what I believe to be pear or possibly apple come through strong with no trace of the alcohol. Small hints of a citrus background give evidence of this Belgian ale roots

T-Taste follows suit with the scent, chardonnay pear overtones with a background of the orange citrus tang compliment nicely. The alcohol is still barely detectable even though this is 10%. Unable to detect any significant evidence of the hops. Little after-taste is present but what is left a mixture of the remaining orange and a slight graininess.

M- This beers enters with the thick sloth similar to a quad but quickly spreads out over the tongue to coat the palette, It goes down very smooth and clean for its type.

Overall I would have to say well done by Amerstam Brewery on this one, while I was a little worried about the high alcohol content of this beer and the fact that it had been aged so long it in wine, I was very please with the amount of the Belgian ale flavor they were able to retain.

For my liking I would say that 8 or 9 months instead of a full year in the cask would have been even better, but an amazing beer none the less. I wish I had one or two more to put away for a while and see how it aged, but I will just have to be sure to catch the next release instead.
