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 (3791) - 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.

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. 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.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 27, 2014
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.

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.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle:   Dirty orangish straw, thick, moderate foamy off-white head, nice lacing.   Vinous nose, a bit sweet, a touch bready.   Vinous and oaky on the tongue, warming as well.   Can feel the 10%, albeit its not hot.   Smooth, a little buttery sweet but not in a bad way.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Sweet finish, bready, oak, vinous, with a very soft fruity flair.   Decent concoction.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle from BevX360
Hazy light amber color. The vanilla barrel aroma marries well with the malt, mellow result. Good body strength, moderately sweet, nice malt flavor, with a clear oak barrel action, and light banana traces; the alcohol is well managed, but it adds a nice edge.
Quite good beer.
