3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a very pale straw color with a large white head.
S: Smells interesting. Mild tart with a heavy hand on the lemon aromas. Quite a bit of floral qualities to it with a mild funk and oak, perhaps a little lacto. There’s plenty of oak and a touch of white wine.
T: The flavor is not too shabby. Heavy on the grass, hay, and lemon zest. Fairly funky and rather strong on the oak. Mild wine and vanilla, some hints of fruit in there as well. Maybe a little bit of pineapple.
M: Fairly light in body with a high level of carbonation and a dry finish.
O: This was surprisingly good. While all of the barrel aged beers from Cisco have been enjoyable, this one was a bit above the rest.
