The Barrel Aged version of 2008 Anniversary Belgium IIPA brew, twice dry hopped and aged in three barrels including a final in Merlot Wine cask to give it a hint of wild yeast character.

brokensail (15593) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 9, 2010
A: The pour is a nice golden amber color with a fluffy white head and some mild lacing. S: The nose has some nice citrus hops along with a subtle tartness to it. A touch of funk and yeast, and a seemingly oaky smell that I was not expecting. T: A mild tartness, apples, pears, and not really any hop character like the nose would make you believe. Not all that complex, surprisingly. M: The body is medium with a pleasant carbonation and a bit dry. D: I don’t really know if this was supposed to be sour, and I don’t think it was. But, the tartness actually worked pretty decently.

Tmoney99 (13242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Draft sample at the MBG Winterfest 2009. Poured a hazy orange color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus, wood and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a very drinkable complex beer and my expectations where exceeded.

From a keg at the RBSG Grand Tasting. Pours a hazy peach color with a minimal head. Fruity and floral aroma with a light tartness, citrus and earthy notes. The taste is citrus, stone fruits, caramel and a faint tartness. Medium bodied.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Hand Bottle… Hazy golden ale with no head. The nose is vinous and funky – wood, citrusy hops and Dap wood finish. Full-bodied with low carbonation. The flavor is medium to heavily bitter, lightly tart and woody. Lengthy, metallically bitter finish. Thanks to GoT and northernbrews for the sample!

deyholla (9912) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a hazy amber orange with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has light fruit with a decent amount of tartness with a bit of yeast and a barrel backing. Flavor is slightly bitter upfront with hops but is mainly lightly tart with a bit of a barrel and grain backing.

phaleslu (9251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle shared by somebody at bsuedekum’s tasting. Pours a semi-cloudy tea color with a wispy off-white head. Notes of earth, dust, pale and sweet malts, melon and light citrus fruits, and herbs. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tea-like mouthfeel. Good, complex, interesting beer, though the multiple barrels seemed to have washed one another’s characteristics out.

sebletitje (9032) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2010
Dog Days of Summer Gathering thanks GOT. handbottled. golden-orange pour, thin white head. nose keeps a moderate wood approach along with hops and some tropical fruits, tangy orange. wood profile is mild. light citrus, honey sweetness, prickly/spiced mouthfeel along with some tropical fruits. Palate keeps a nice dry-hopped profile although the overall aspect along with the barrel aging made made for a low carbonation with mostly wood barrel and prickly mouthfeel coming through. Barrel aging works well on this one.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 Draft to taster at The Livery. Looks good; a slightly cloudy orange with foamy off-white head. Smells solid; tart and sour. Not much hops, as it’s dominated by the sour notes, but that’s alright because it smells good anyway. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
