THE Fruit Sour tasting. One of those rare beers that were barrel aged on barrels previously used hold beer! Cloudy brown beer, little pale tan head. Palate is light, airy and semi dry. Smooth bourbon in a crisp vinegary dark fruit backdrop. A little acid. Not too much. Semi dry finish. All right.

The taste is up-front sourness, lemon, grapefruit, vanilla, light banana, lacto, over-ripe plum, prune, fairly acidic, faint wood, bourbon and earth with a tangy wood finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Good balance. Interesting stuff.

Huhzubendah (2549) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Matt. The beer is brown, with a thin beige head. The aroma offers coffee, malt, booze, and barrels. The flavor is of alcoholic coffee. Bourbon and oak are quite prominent as well. Too much barrel character. Unbalanced. Ok stuff. Perhaps worth another try, should the situation present itself.
