Draft at the brewpub after a nice long hike. Pours golden amber with a thin white head. Fruity sweet and vinous aroma, with some spicy yeast and a hint of funk. The flavor has sweet fruity notes with some nice funk and tartness. The barrel treatment is evident, with nice dark fruity vinous notes showing through. Good stuff.
