Barrel Project 02: Belgian Quad / Merlot Barrel

Written by Don Blake. Posted in Barrel Projects

OG 1.085    FG: 1.012    Merlot Barrel, gen 1 -  9 months   ABV:  9.5

For the second barrel project, we brewed up a big Belgian Quad.   Most of the participants brewed at Left Hand on Big Brew Day 2010.  The rich, malty base blends wonderfully with the heady fruitiness of the trappist yeast we used.  After 9 months in the barrel, the wine and barrel character adds a fantastic depth of flavor.
