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)
