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

Tmoney99 (10085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a cloudy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour fruit and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer and good for another large round number for me.

750 ml bottle to snifter (thanks Daknole). The bottle says this is 10.5% (not 9.4%). Looks good; a cloudy orange with white head. Smells spicy and funky with some hop notes. Tastes like it smells, but a little busy. Good mouthfeel though. Enjoyable.
