Traditional Belgian blonde ale used as base for oak-aged 12% alcohol-fused brown body. Cognac barrel adds mellow warmth and rich sweetness to supple red-wined tenacity and pureed berry swerve. Vinous grape tannins provide sour refuge to sugared Bordeau, Beaujolais, bourbon and burgundy luster. Plum-wined strawberry, blackberry, boysenberry and rapsberry rasp finds middle ground. Receding red licorice nip spotted.
