Barrel Project 05: Belgian Golden Strong

Written by Don Blake. Posted in Barrel Projects

OG 1.089    FG: 1.004    Merlot Barrel, gen 2 -  12 months   ABV:  11.1

While the quad was resting in the first use merlot barrel, we needed to think about what to put in there afterward.  So a Belgian Golden Strong was created, brewed, and added after we bottled the quad.   After time, the Golden Strpng took on a bit of barrel character and has been lovingly referred to as "Golden Sours"

This beer took best of show at the 2014 Peak-to-Peak ProAm (entered as a Gueuze)
