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.

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 didn’t 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.
