4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear copper color with thin white foam layer. The smell has a lot of green apple and pear. Strongly carbonated with a lot of apple and pear. Very refreshing and a little bitter and quite tart. Very dry and tart aftertaste. Insanely great beer. A little over carbonated maybe, but insanely strong and dominant fruit notes.

Draft at Mekong Restaurant - this is a barrel aged version of Local Species. Ours dark Amber with large vibrant white foam head. Barreling adds nice age, caramel and bourbon tones to a very good pale ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one is good and a little strange. Pours amber with a lacing white head. The aroma is whiskey sweet with a hint of something sour. The flavor is whiskey and wood, with just a hint of the sourness. A little bit of Belgian spice is in there too.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a hazy yellow with a good head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is a little funky and fruity with some nice wet limestone basement stuff happening.
The flavor is lightly bitter with a little bit of fruity hop character and some nice minerallity. The barrel character here is left mostly to a minimum only adding a light woody component... which is cool, I do suppose.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA (best before November 2015 on the cork). Deep orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, light citrus, and faint bourbon barrel. Really nice, unique taste of tangerine hops, wet grass, Earth, vanilla, and oak. Lingering bitterness undercut by booze and wood. Completely original and well done.
