BLADT (587) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Tap. Dark copper color with beige head. Lovely, fresh perfume of green bud, pine train, caramel and light grapefruit. Goddamn, this beer smells nice. Taste is a mild let down, but still enjoyable. Medium body, average carbonation. Great hop undergirding. Tootsie Roll melted in for sweetness. Flavors struggle against each other, need to be reconciled.

tcane7 (1660) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2014
Taster at the brewery. Pours copper with quickly diminishing head and no lace. Aroma of pine, caramel, onion, burnt cheddar. Medium body. Taste follows suit. Decent bitterness on the finish.

mansquito (3346) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Miles, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours red with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some lightly fruity hops. Taste is just a tad sweet. Nice underlying hoppiness. Ultimately, I was expecting a tad more. But this was still a nice brew from Barrier.

Light amber body, medium off-white head, spotty lacing. Caramel, pine, and light citrus. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, restrained sweetness for an amber, light bitterness.

Aroma is the best part of this beer. However, that's not to take away from the other redeeming qualities. It's a good overall IPA. Pours a dark amber/red. Earthy, full bodied. ---AJ's Approval

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
A reddish copper amber ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with nutty notes, and grassy resinous hops, nice. In mouth, a smooth nutty malt with light roasted notes and resinous hops, decent. On tap at Rattle N Hum.

Draught. cloudy amber with soapy head. Aromas of caramel, pine, fruity yeast. Additional Flavors of earth, light grapefruit, yeast. Plenty bitter but balanced. Body is very full and fresh. Lovely basic beer. Prefect flagship. Great use of hops.
