This fruity, complex ale evolved over time to its present state – hence the name, Slow Roll. In November, we began it as a Belgian-style golden ale. We then racked the beer into bourbon barrels. Six months later, our anniversary beer is ready to perform. Admire the light copper color in your glass. Take in the aromas of pear, banana, and spice, with gentle oak and caramel notes. The first sip will reveal even more nuance, with soft caramel and bourbon in the background. It starts very effervescent, followed by a dry finish. We invite you to celebrate with us and enjoy Slow Roll, a limited edition bottling of our Fifth Anniversary ale.

5-19-13 from the tap room in Redlands.
Pours a hazy golden color with little to no head. Lots of bubbles. Smells of bourbon and spices, some yeast and carmel. Taste is a light sour, plum, cherries, bourbon, vanilla, and maybe some tart fruit like cranberries or passion fruit. Mouthfeel was on the heavier side but very smooth for an 11.9% beer. Overall, this beer is a delightful addition to the barrel roll series. Bought a bottle to save for 5 years, lets see how long that last!
