Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours honey, white head. Mild lacing. Aroma is citrus, orange, lemon, little bit of honey, thereís a light tropical fruit note. Mostly citrus here. Slightly floral, not getting much bourbon character. Flavor has tons of that bourbon. Super intense and honey for days. The chamomile seems to add something but I canít put my finger on it. I think thatís the other element. Interesting. Fascinating flavors. Iím loving it. Wow, itís awesome. So different.

Pour on tap at One Eyed Bettys, dark orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice orange, pine, some grapefruit into a bit of biscuit, bready notes with a touch of grass and spice, touch of oak, bourbon comes through into some of the floral notes. Taste is more indicative of the ingredients, nice floral chamomile, minty notes into some pine, grass, orange, honey comes through with some oak, finishing slightly bitter. Very interesting.

Bottle. Aroma is huge chamomile, vanilla and oak. Tastes slightly sweet with honey. Big vanilla and oak barrel to mix with chamomile and flowers. Itís well made for sure but itís just not my favorite kind of beer. Hope these guys start barrel aging more barley wines, stouts, etc instead of IPAs.

Petkus331 (378) - Redford, Michigan, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Aroma of cammomile mintiness, tannic oak, sweet toffee roasted barrel, passion fruit, clove, very slightest franken scense. Hazy, non homogonized, bronze, swirls of off white foam, some lace. Bitter oregano-hay up front, fades into sweet caramel-passion fruit and sugar water, lingering mild oak tannin and mild bitter hay. Somewhat watery texture. Overall, wow, very nice, unique!

Tap (for real!). Nice spotty lacing. Opaque amber gold. Honey/chamomile nose. Nice body. Very unique and sweet taste -- hops and chamomile play in an almost hoppy tea like way.

Bottle share courtesy of dcschiller. It pours with a murky copper body that has gold hues and supports a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up spicy oak, slippery sweet bourbon, some malt thickened citrus hops, floral hops and more sweetness laced with booze at the end of the draw. The taste is sweet with bourbon and begins edged with a mix of harsh booze and spicy oak that just ramps up the sense of harshness. Behind that are murmurs of dull malt sweetened citrus and a bit more bourbon booze. Overall this really doesnít work all that well.

Bottle at the Triad bottle share at Foothills organized by Mike. Cloudy blonde pour. Aroma is floral, slightly medicinal, with pine and a slight barrel note. Flavor is more barrel heavy. Sometimes I get pickle notes in overly aged hoppy beers. I donít get that here, but thereís something close to that. Slight vinegar kick, vanilla sweetness, with moderate hoppiness. Not really an IPA. Must say this is an odd choice for a debut beer, but it drink(s) pretty good, so best of luck.

Hopheads rejoice! You can taste the bourbon but it's not overly aggressive which is good. The juniper and chamomile bring out the floral and juicy notes. Such a great beer and entry for this new outfit in Chelsea. Michigan beer is the best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 691 of 816 thanks to my brother. Hazy gold with a pink hue and light head. Juniper, sweet and floral aromas. Sweet and gin and tonic upfront but with a really perfumy finish.
