COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Golden Ale created by blending the final recipe with its own barrel aged pilot beers fermented with wild yeasts and lacto. Each individual barrel contributes a unique flavor from the wood chosen and the cultures resident to achieve the subtle complexities that develop(ed) over time. A beer which starts sweet, filling the mouth with fruit-like esters and mild spiciness, changing to a tart and lingering flavor reminiscent of apples and grapefruit living amidst an earthy, citrusy hop aroma. 42% aged in wine barrels 58% Ale

Pour is dark hazed amber with a tight off white head. The nose is a balance of wood, Brett, and fruit. Wood is most forthcoming with apple skin, light mushroom and tannin. Taste is much less balanced, stronger malt undertones, brighter apple skin notes, musky mushroomy brett, fairly powerful tannic flavor. Very strong carbonation, light body, semi dry finish with a tinge of booze but not too much for the alcohol content.

Pours a slightly hazy golden light orange color. Tart aroma, with some citrus character. Nice tart, brett like flavor as well. Citrus. Some mild alcohol warmth and astringency (however served warm). Overall, pretty tasty but a little on the harsh side.

kevinator (1060) - The Colony, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Nice sour with some interesting influences. Slightly sour aroma with fruit (apples) touches. Golden in color with some bubbles up the glass and a white foamy head. Puckering mouthfeel with carbonation and some dryness. Palate cleansing flavors from the sourness with fruit and wine. Some grainy spices in the blend as well. There was a lot going on. I couldn’t say it stood out drastically from other good sours though.

There is so much going on in this beer! The flavor profile is extremely complex. There is apple, grapefruit, a hint of a Rose wine, some barrel is slightly in the taste. There is a earthiness to it as well, some sourness from the lacto. Overall wonderful beer. Wish I had another to enjoy later. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
