had from bottle at the moody gardens beer festival .. . a barreled witbier, a bit odd but ok .. pours a mild orange amber .. solid foam .. . the barrel actually plays quite well .. mild to medium feel. i kinda liked this. wouldn;t want a whole bottle though .. . . Sometimes i think iím a psychopath, but true psychos arenít aware of that fact. Which means
iím an angry idiot- that, i can deal with..

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Overcarbed beer yields a gorgeous pour with copious amounts of stubborn head and lace. Lemony fresh aroma, just about zero barrel presence. Sweet wheaty malt and lemon peels on the palate, not much else. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some slightly tart cherries and grapes with a little bit of wheat thrown in. The flavor is not quite as good. I get some cherry and oak notes, as well as some wheat and red wine character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Errl-thanks, Chris! Cloudy, witte looking pour. Decent carbonation. Nose is lacto, wet wood, some lemon citrus, wheat. Taste very much follows, with nice subdued lemon tart finish. Some tannic qualities on the finish, presumably from the barrels. Almost like a berlinerweisse. Really liked this. Lacto that must have been indigenous in the barrel worked a nice trick on this that did way more for it than any red wine barrel effect.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from batch 1 (2/12/13) thanks to angrypirate06. Pours with a hazy yellow hued body with a medium sized and retentive white head that leaves good lace. Aromas are of funky phenolics, wine, coriander, citrus zest, suntan lotion, lactone, tropical fruit and black pepper. Brett C like esters. Flavors are grainy, wheaty, bready, suntan lotion. Zesty finish with vanilla and tannins. Lightly earthy, mild funk, wine. High carbonation, but feels a bit thick and/or ropey on the tongue.
