3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Flying Saucer - Houston for their (512) Day event, 5/12/14
Aroma: Has some interesting wine and oak notes on the underlying Belgian yeast, fruit, and spice
Appearance: It pours a murky golden-orange color with a fairly thick white/off-white head
Flavor: Taste works similarly, fruity, but not overly sweet, some wine notes, yeast, and mild funk
Palate: The body is medium, it has a higher carbonation level, and a solid mouthfeel
I liked the way this one worked. They seem to have found a pretty nice balance here between the barrel added components and the underlying beer. Maybe a bit too much carbonation, but this is certainly worth trying.
