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

Thanks again, Peter. Nose is big tropical fruit, mainly pineapple. Lightly tart farmhouse and lemon zest behind a grassy aroma. Pour is burnt orange with a white head. Flavor is funky, lightly salty, a ton of wheat and grass with some grapefruit and lemon rind. Pretty cool and not what I expected. I didnít get a whole lot of the wine barrel though. Nice brew.

Bottle Courtesy of Dak. Really enjoyed this much more then others it seams. It has a really funky earthy feel that is reminiscent of a rustic farmhouse ale. Some booze and sweetness but not overly so. I like it!

75cl, as Odell Deconstruction (42% aged in Wine barrels/ 58% Ale), new exclusive American brew, with wild yeasts, from Beers of Europe Setchey, very complex brew, woody/sweet and slightly fruity/vinous, not too heavy, yet not balanced, cloudy, rocky head, good brew, yet expensive!

deyholla (10209) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade. Pours a clear orangish gold with a large egg shell white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a pretty strong dry note with a bit of grape, tartness, sweet grain and a hint of citrus. Flavor is similar with grain and light tart fruits up front and quite a dry finish.

j12601 (9560) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Had this at Where The Wild Beers Are. Pours a hazed amber orange with a thin white to yellowed beige head. Soft fuzzy musk and fleshy tropical fruit on the nose. Big dense yeast, toast and malt. Light acid and pepper, musk, soft wheat. Big wheat and caramel into a yeasty finish with warm alcohol and light acid.

Bottle opened with a big pop of the cork and poured a deep orange amber color with a one finger white head. Aroma has white wine barrel, vanilla, sweet fruit, bready malt, and a snap of heat. Mouth feel is medium light and there is high side carbonation. Flavor has lots from the barrels, vanilla, white wine grapes, brett, esters, malt, and a light sweetness.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle from Aaron. Thanks! Hazy orange pour with a huge white head. Really nice fruity aroma of peach, white wine, apple, banana, and citrus. Golden raisin, oak, vanilla, and a light tartness. The flavor is a blend of sweet and sour. Quite a lot of peach, banana, grape, apple, and golden raisin. Sweet vanilla, a touch of oak, citrus zest, mild tartness and a high level of carbonation.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 2, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 Deep hazy orange, huge fluffy white head. Intense yeast nose, wood, wine, peach. Sour as. Medium body. Like a lambic, but with mad woody notes. Finish is long, sour and bitter. Not your ordinary beer. Re rated, enjoyed.

TheAlum (6956) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2013
750 ml bottle shared at the Flossmoor Pre-Dark Lord Day event (Flossmoor, IL). Pours a deeper orange amber hue, well hazed, good orange glow throughout. A frothy whitish head atop dies to a film and laces ok. Aromas are pears and apples, sour slant with some lactic acidity, yogurt, and lemons. Gentle oak, straw, and graininess. More lacto hits the nostrils, some gentle crab apple, bready malts, and melon. Initial is lighter end of the fold, more dry and fizzy brett up front hits the palate, grass and hay, some funky horseblanket. Some bigger yogurt influence, lactic acidity is soft and yogurty. Some crab apple, sour pear and some banana. Yogurt, brett, and some dryness. A bit fizzy and dry, brett influence. Some gentle oak, sweeter tart fruit and good lactic element but brett dominates the palate for me. A bit sweet and cumbersome for me, a touch thick and not light and vibrant like I prefer.
