Thanks to Will for popping this open on a COLD Colorado night. Pours golden, a little head.. slight citrus aroma. Overall, very light mouthfeel, and I just want to get something else out of it. Not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but not something that is worth a limited bottle count.

First thing that I notice is a really, really wonderful mouthfeel. The flavors are filled out nicely by the aging.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap during Great COntenders. Listed as "Summer Cab Ride". Clear light gold with a thin fizzy head. Interesting aroma of candied ginger, oak, white wine, and a saison like funk. Taste was bright and lightly grapey, with lots of oak and pale malt, mild bitter hops. Pretty fine and dandy without leaning too much on the barrel aging.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the brewery. Hazy straw colored pour with a 1/2 inch ivory head that faded but left clumps inside the glass. Aroma is quite fruity with lemon, citrus, and grape elements. Light and refreshing, this is definitely sessionsble and shows some wheaty elements along with grape and cab influence in the aftertaste. Not bad.
