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

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks to James for the bottle! Dark ruby red dark pour with thin slightly off white head, aroma has notes of lemon, biscuit, hints of earth, grain touch of grass, slight bourbon, hints of oak, finishing a bit sweet, some cardboard. Taste is a mix of sweet belgian fruit, hints of earth, touch of candi sugar, dark fruit, hints of cardboard, slight caramel, very slight lemon and slightly sour, but it works, finishing sweet. Interesting for sure!

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 (2249) - 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 (1858) - 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 (1219) - 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.

cheap (3941) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2014
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.

kramer (4857) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light copper body under a one inch frothy off-white head that faded to a thin covering. The nose is quite interesting, some very light caramel, light fruitiness, a touch of bourbon, some slightly funky Belgian yeast, and some minimal hops. Rather easy drinking with quite a mix of flavors going on, none of which really dominate. There’s almost a bit of a light brett yeast influence on the finish of this. Nice light thin caramel malt, some spicy and fruity notes, and just a bit of oak and bourbon on the finish. One of the more well-done bourbon aged beers, it adds a nice accent without being overpowering. Light to medium bodied with a slight cling and soft fizzy active carbonation. This is pretty tasty, I can’t help but think that there’s a slight greet infection to this beer, but I think it actually makes it better.

radio_nowhere (745) - Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2014
12oz corked bottle into Trappist glass; deep golden-hued amber color, some yeast bits with a finger of creamy light tan head. Aroma of earthiness (like musty wood), orange citrus, pine, pepper and other yeast spices. Taste adds notes of caramel, dough, honey, orange zest, faint vanilla and fruity yeast. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, dry with bitter oaky finish. Interesting fruity-oaky Belgian, quite nice on this rainy day.
