COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Late this year we plan to release a second beer in the Barrel Aged series... a dark, 10% wheat beer. We have been aging a portion of the beer in New American Medium Toast Oak, and a portion in Stainless steel. We will then blend the beers to taste, and bottle condition. The beer will have spent over 6 months aging in the oak and steel at the brewery!

Spicy, zesty and complex. Intriguing, but watery and ultimately too hard to enjoy. On tap at the Flying Saucer in San Antonio.

Warped_Silver (83) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Pours black with white thin head. Smell of oak and slight hint of grape juice. Taste is lacking - mild roasted malt, wheat, minimal hop bitterness. Virtually no Belgian yeast character. Most prominent taste is oak. Boring. Overall not as good as rating led to believe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finish is a well balanced bittering with spicy notes and slight alcohol bite. Body is medium to heavy. Surprisingly easy drinking and dmooth.

Bottle from a trade with JStax I think. Feb 2013 bottle. Dark brown pour with a huge foamy head that fades slowly to a thick film. Aroma is sugary, fruit candy, prunes, bread, raisins, and apples. Tastes like apple sauce, prunes, dark bread, raisins, and light banana. Medium to thick body. Big creamy and foamy mouthfeel. Interesting beer not nothing special.
