3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the barrel cellar - cloudy gold - frothy head - nose has a nice mix of mild spice (nutmeg, all spice), earthy squash (pumpkin, butternut) and earthy yeast funk - all are mild but well-integrated - soft carbonation - full mouthfeel - flavor is much like the aroma - very nice integration of spices, earthy squash, and mild funkiness - I really enjoyed this - when Chad nails it, he really nails it - too bad beers like this are few and far between.

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a hazy orange with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong brett, floral, citrus. Thin mouthfeel with strong brett, oak, citrus, tart finish, very good.

this one was weird, spicy around on a strong tart beer doesnt really do it for me. Good cinnamon and nutmeg then lactic sourness. Meh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle in a stem glass. Pours hazy amber/golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of light tartness, some herbs and floral notes, light spices, some pale and light caramel malts, and some hints of light fruits. Flavor the same but I feel the herbs and spices take away from the base beer. Average texture. A decent beer but could be better without the added stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy orange. Nose is quite lactic, but with strong notes of oakwood and apple. The flavor is nicely sour apple and reisling, with the barrel adding some background depth. Delicious.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bright fruity aroma, like a fortified white wine, autumn leaves, spices, brett. Dry, tart flavor, just the right amount of sour, juicy. Perfect fall beer. Terrific.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours a hazy orange color with a small disappearing head. The aroma is full with lemon/lime, cinnamon, hints of nutmeg and ginger, hay, and background notes of mildly tart fruit. The flavor is the same. More lemon/lime tartness that is actually pretty strong along with a good amount of spicy ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. There’s some herbal bitterness in a tart finish. Pretty enjoyable. There may be some funk in there, but it’s covered up by all the spices. Decent.
