Golden pour. Nice frothy white head (I say that a lot). Aroma- man I want to swim in this, lemon, grass, white wine grape, vinous..lovely. Taste, lots of saison like character at first, nice mild hops, grains, and then comes the wine barrel, slight sour, sweet, oak, very refreshing and crisp and extremely well put together. Theses guys are killing it! Really nice beer.

Wow!!!!! Excellent!!! Coup de coeur!! Une bière sublime qui goûte les fruits d’été tels que les abricots, les pêches et les poires. Une bière assez acidulée avec un bon houblon sans trop grande amertume. Un vrai délice!

Tmoney99 (11070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, floral and tannic wood aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style and great label.

Gift from Lindsey for Christmas! Recommendation from Bruce! Thanks buddies! :D Aroma: Sour - granny smith apple sour. Nice. Notes of barrel aging, sweet. Red wine. Appearance: Cloudy yellow, tiny white head. Palate: Thick bodied, creamy, fizzy, slightly astringent. Taste: Not as sour as it smells, but still sour. Quickly turns sweet and then tapers into subtle bitterness. Very well balance beer.
