On tap at Fire Works Pizza in Arlington, VA over the weekend. Served in a tulip. Pours a somewhat-hazy golden-yellow color with a nice white head and a bit of sticky lacing. The nose brings some faint oak and a nice lactic presence along with a nice bouquet of stone fruits. The flavor continues down this path, with a mellow acidity and nice peach and apricot character throughout. Touch of lemon in the background. Body is light-medium with good carbonation and a dry finish. Exceedingly drinkable. No whiskey anywhere. Highly recommended.

Cask at Churchkey. Very hazy, murky tan pour with a small head. The nose holds really impressive funky brett notes, definitely spicy rye character and oak from the barrel, vinous presence, and some hints of the original stonefruit from the base beer. A touch thin, but a lucky mistake by DC Brau.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Cask at CK. Pours murky golden with webby, white lacing. Amazing funky nose- full on peach flesh funk with mild acetobacter atop some excellent buttery bourbon/whiskey. Very nice, like Goose Island Dominique. Taste is a bit bland with mealy apple. Powdery finish. Mild twang from some acetic sourness. Not really a complete beer, but the nose is superb. Not sure how this was accomplished but seems like a great infection inside the barrel.

BeerandBlues2 (12101) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Cask. Pours light hazy orange with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is fruity esters, moderate rye whiskey, spicy alcohol, caramel and biscuit malt, light sour mash, and medium hops. Flavor is medium rye whiskey, alcohol, medium floral and citrus hops, light bitterness, fruity esters, biscuit and honey malt with a dry finish. Medium body and warmth, low carbonation.
