Lukaduke (3038) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Pours a golden ,color with two fingers of fizzy white foam. Lots of sweet corn pops, spicy yeast, round cereal grain, toasted caramel some underlying complexity of tannic fruit but it is very subtle. Lots of carbonation.

douglas88 (8451) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium white head. A fresh fruity vinous nose, woody. The flavor is dry malty, certainly the base Golden ale is there, fresh wine barrels. Light spices, banana. OK. The barrel is very big.

XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
22oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a tiny bubble white cap that retains pretty nicely, settling to a dense rope and large bubble islands. Aroma of sweaty sock yeast, peach, grape skin, a touch of wood, straw. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter. Medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Dry finish.

Prufrockstar (1994) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle. Golden pour with a bit of white head that dissipates quickly. Pinot comes through in the aroma more than in the taste. Taste is somewhat phenolic. Heavy, thick, alcohol ... grapes still there as well, but mostly a heavy and thick golden ale. Overall: The label goes into detail about golden ales not generally going into barrels, and wine barrels at that ... I applaud that brewers out there are taking changes and trying different stuff, but this is one that really doesnít work at all for me. Hard to finish even a 6 oz glass.

Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Poured a dark reddish brown with two finger foamy white head. Smell of brett and mild fruit. Caramel sweetness with a heavy brett taste. Not getting the pinot barrel or any vineous notes which would imo enhance the flavor

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle at the Boise brewery. Golden pour with an off white head. Strong lacing evident, mild sweet aroma with a tinge of yeast. Sweet flavor with stone fruit and biscuit evident. Mild Belgian yeast flavor as well. Finishes smooth with no burn. One of the best beers 10 Barrel has put out so far.

IndianaRed (3845) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle at the Boise BP hazy golden pour with a thin fine white skin. Fruity spcy aroma. Light malty a little belgianish. Some cider notes and warm alcohol burn. The barrel aging is subtle and nice.

Bottle from 10 barrel Boise. A lot going on and good flavors, wish the wine came out now. This will definitely do better with some age.

JohnGalt1 (1672) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Poured into my HotD goblet.. Hazy orange... nice off white head.. I swear both head and beer have a pinkish hue. Nose is almost like a Belgian yeast was used (??) Big and malty with peach and lesser apricot. Wine barrel presence is pretty big with background vinous but a heavier oak. I get something I associate with light clove or even some pink bubblegum. Flavors are all over the place with this one and somehow mesh very well... tons of fruitiness.. apricot and melon.. balanced pale malts pull and balance the fruits and then the barrels come in.. vinous but not so much as on the nose.. spicy with a bit of minor American hoppiness... Complex and simple... very integrated.. the sweetness is a playground where everybody comes and plays together ... Never any alcohol.. damn good.

Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured golden with a thin head. Aroma was vinous, oaky, and candied like. Flavor didnít have as much of a barrel flavor that I hoped for but still a little vinous with sugary malty tones. Not A whole lot of yeast presence or esters, hoping some time will change that.
