4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Called the "Barrel House Sour" at GABF. Poured orange-yellow with whtie head, aroma had fruity notes of peach, grape, touch of lemon tart, some biscuit, spice, slight hint of earth and funk in there as well. Taste is a really nice balance of fruity lemon, peach, grape from the barrel, nice dry oaky wine also adds some funk to the tart notes, some sweet biscuit and spice notes finishes nice and tart, funky and dry it really comes together as balanced and complex.

Tasted on tap at the Barrel House. A very timely name for a very good beer! RIP Amy. This one is a sour Belgian blonde aged in chardonnay barrels since 09. It pours golden with a large white head. The aroma is very fruity with apricots and grapefruit and a touch of butter and wood. Very subtle. It’s nicely tart with some more grapefruit and sweeter notes of peach and apricot with vanilla, tropical fruit, and oak in the finish where the chardonnay really makes its presence known. Not much funk, but still very good.
