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

olio (7840) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2015
75 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours hazy orange color with a huge head. Sweet rose hip and orange on the nose, yeast, herbal notes and wood. Sourish apricot and orange on the flavor, yeasty, moderately spicy, wooden notes and some toffee and green apples. Very smooth and pleasant palate, alcohol is also very well hidden. I like this very much.

DW78715816 (93) - Kansas, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Pours a very deep orange with a thick beige head. Aroma is citrus and some hops, fruity/get the wine barrel smell. Taste is very complex, a little sweet, fruit like and some spice - definite get a little of the apple and grapefruit as advertised but it is subtle. Also definitely get the sour/wild ale name as it definitely finishes sour and id call the finish dry. Quite an experience - very glad my beer guy recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

elbernays (910) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 21, 2014
Pours cloudy yellow orange. Big lasting foam head. Looks great. Nose is mild sour, orange rind, bread, yeast, urine. Sweet orange flavour, spice, with a disappointing amount of sourness. Plenty of bubbles which is a bit too much and leaves a sugary sherbet finish. Alcohol strength is managed well. For a wild beer you would be expecting more complexity and sourness.

It has spicy citrus and pineapple flavours, vanilla, oak, wine, whisky and tart cider apple notes on the dry, creamy zesty finish.
