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

Pours golden orange with a thick white head. The nose is Brett earthy soil, lemon, leather and apples. The taste is high sweet and low bitter with only a hint of tart. This needs more time. The texture is like pop rocks. Way overcarbonated. The body is light and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fruity and thick takes some getting used to and stays on your tongue for a while. Definitely one and done per sitting but well worth it

Top blows off the top when u remove the metal top, golden colour with a little bit of haze, aroma is sharp grass, wood decomposing undergrowth. Taste is really wild yeast, classic Belgium spice, over ripe banana. Touch of sweet oak on the end, scary but nice

AshtonMcCobb (2483) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 30, 2013
75cl bottle from Appellation Wines and opened by unstablefable who almost lost an eye as the cork shot over our shoulders. Pours a golden colour with a little bit of haze and an enormous head - see earlier gushing comment. The nose has grass, woodiness and undergrowth. The taste has more fresh grass, this time with spice and some overripe banana. The palate has a really big structure, though the texture is quite tight and there is a long refreshing but still powerful finish. I like this a lot.

BVery (6110) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Tap at Pracna. Mostly clear rich golden pour with a white head. Nice blend of passion fruit, grape, and kiwi. Slightly sour, mostly easy drinking. Iím digging it.

M82 (276) - Kansas, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Big pop when opened pours hazy golden with huge light and tightly structured white head, Nose is complex, balanced, and subtle layers of traditional golden ale apples and pears over honey malt with soft funky fruit, kiwi, and light red wine barrel, Taste follows with added dense layer of sweetness, not overpowering, but evident, more carbonation in the mouth rather than on the pour would be nice to carry the sweetness, but acidic notes do help out, Overall, another solid offering from odellís sour program, not mind blowing, but loaded with subtle nuances

cthomas2390 (219) - Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Pours a clear, reddish straw. Fruity esters on the nose with a slight funk as well. The esters give way to sweet, grapelike qualities in the middle. Finishes tart and winey.

Scopey (6716) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Bottle at Euston Tap, many thanks to jack. It pours hazy orange with a few floaters and a massive white head. The nose is earth, grapefruit, orange, Granny Smith apple, pear, spice, wood, metal and hay. The taste is earth, wood, hay, light pear, apple, grapefruit, light vinous notes, subtle tartness, baryard and light alcohol with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not outstanding, but pretty interesting nonetheless.

(Draught and 750ml bottle, 2012 vintage) Pours a clear yellow body with a bright white head. Aroma of vanilla, wood, horse blanket, vinous, and tangerine. Flavor of vanilla, grass, orange, apricot, white grape, and pineapple. Quite sweet.
