Rio Reserva

Brewery Note : This ale was brewed back in 2008, a collaboration between brew-masters Urbain Coutteau from De Struise Brouwers and Ryohei Sugawara San from Rio Grande & Sierra Blanca Brewing Company from Moriarty, New Mexico. The goal was to brew a deep-golden, blond Belgian quadruppel with an enormous potential of aromas and flavours, with added complexity from oak-barrel aging. First aging for 1 yr took place in Saint Emilion Tour Baladoz wine oak barrels. Kentucky Bourbon barrels were chosen as 2nd barrel aging for their very special soft roast quality and noble vanilla flavours. Year after year, different quality controls were executed and in May 2012 brew-masters Urbain & Ryohei decided to bottle-condition this very special ale. Another 3 months of cold-maturing was done at the brewery so the brewers were absolutely certain of the quality of the beer before releasing it .
