HUMPTY BUMP: A quarter loop to a vertical climb followed by a half loop to a vertical down completed with a quarter loop to level flight. Funny sounding name...real serious beer. HUMPTY BUMP, the second release in our exclusive Barrel Roll Series, begins with a hand-crafted Belgian Strong Golden Ale that we brew with appel cider from the local Riley’s Los Rios Farms and caramelized sugar. Thus powerful brew is then aged for eight months in second-fill oak bourbon barrels with Brettanomyces to create a one-of-a-kind drinking expierience. A complex bouquet of fruit, spice, honey, and vanilla, with a subtle "barnyard" aroma courtesy of the wild yeast. The yeast also imparts a unique funky counterpoint to the slightly sweet, apple flavors. This creamy, full-bodied bottle-conditioned ale will mature for up to five years--if you can wait that long.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear yellow color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good to excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour fruit and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart flavor with a medium to heavy sour & tart finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.

750 ml bottle to taster (2011 vintage; shared by alexsdad06). Looks good for the style; a cloudy deeper honey with fluffy eggshell head. Smells semi-sweet and yeasty. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a dry, bretty mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Rated in April 2012 (Backlog) - Gold in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of overpoweringly heavy booze. Taste is the same.

At the 2012 Barrel Aged Beer Event. I was expecting more from this. Not very tart or very "brett-y" to my taste. Did not taste like 9.5% for sure but was certainly not strong. Mild to me.

Bottle thanks to Tim, pours bright hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is part cider and part funky yeast. Flavor is not as funky as the nose leads on but has some Belgian yeast tartness much like the seasonal from this brewery. Nice clean light malt bill with the fruity/yeast tartness finishing nicely. I like it.
