Batch 38 consists exclusively of barriques used for the maturation of white wine. A blend has been made from barrels where the La Trappe Quadrupel has matured for one, two or three years. The used white wine barrels come from the southern French canton of “Gaillac”. Characteristic grape varieties grown in this region are the “Loin de l'oeil” and the “Muscadel”. The wines made from these grapes are known for their low acidity and strong fruitiness.
The beer has a red-brown color with a light beige head of small carbon dioxide bubbles. Unlike the previous batches that have been in wine barrels, no new oak barrels have been used in this blend. Because this batch consists largely of barrels where the La Trappe Quadrupel has matured for no less than three years, the beer has a particularly strong aroma of wood and vanilla. These smells are immediately perceptible after pouring. The moderate carbon dioxide content gives this beer a fine and soft mouthfeel. Vanilla and dried fruit predominate in the taste, in addition there are also spicy and toasted aromas present. The aftertaste is dry, alcoholic and fruity, which evokes associations with the white wine.
