COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hybrid beer unlike any other. Belgian fermentation, American hops, Virginia foothills deep-well water and Kentucky bourbon barrels. Bizarrely delicious.

Westmeister (1699) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 15, 2014
July 1st Sunday. This was another unique beer this day. American hops all of the place (citrus, hints of tropical) with a balancing fruity yeast component. Hints of oaks and mild bourbon make for an enjoyably complex brew.

Not exactly a great looking pour although I could have gotten the end of the bottle. Murky brown color with an off white head. Honey sweetness with a bit of lemon in the flavor and aromas. Honey accentuated a bit by the belgian yeast notes adding a bit of light band aid note. Resiny sticky sweet finish.

Fruity aroma and also a fruity taste. Flavor is a bit of floral hops and a nice smooth finish.

cfrancis (2259) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours a reddish brown with a small off white head. Aroma is sweet bourbon and light oak with some pine hops. Taste is a little messy with the hops coming through with the sweetness of the bourbon and dryness of the oak. Interesting beer but a little unknown what the main element of the beer is.

snoworsummer (1925) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Draft at Beer and Bacon. Pours cloudy copper with a bubbly off white head. Tastes like burnt hops, burnt coffee, light syrupy sweetness. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like orange and hops.

TXBadger (1246) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Had at a large share. Pours a nice amber color with some citrus, yeast, and bourbon on the nose; follows onto the palate. This was a weird combination of flavors.

Kicked the tap on this at the magic tree. Big head but normal yellow beer look underneath. Just smells like fresh beer, nothing special on the nose. A little bit of bitterness on the uptake and it remains a tad bitter thru the session. Practically flat. Warming sensations traveling down my throat. Not bad overall but could use a few more manners.
