UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 Can: Thanks, Jeff. Cloudy orange & burnt amber with a soapy, foamy bright white bubbly cap. Aroma of rotten fruit, bourbon, diaper, & not much else... Kind of weird. Not great. Flavor of watered down bourbon. Slight wood. Toast. Watered down as FUCK. Light bourbon hints. What’s the fucken point. Goddamn you Jeff you motherfucker this shit blows.

Reviewing the release. Bourbon, dark fruit, and a underlying sweet smell. Murky amber color - reminiscent of dirty pond water. Very little head, and that disappears to spotty lacing. Some type of taste upfront, but it is quickly overwhelmed by a bourbon taste. This is honestly like drinking a watered down bourbon more than a beer. Thin. Most beers I have had from Midland Brewing have been unexciting and not too strong in flavors. To take one of those and put it in a bourbon barrel was doomed to fail.

Bottle, Bernheim Wheat Whiskey Barrel Release #1. Aroma has notes of bourbon, bread, dark dried fruits, Belgium yeast, vanilla, alcohol and wood. Not as good as it sounds. Dark hazy amber hue with an average off-white head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is very sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium to full bodied with fizzy carbonation and an alcohol astringency. Overall it was much better fresh and the carbonation and difference in smell is probably due to infection in the bottling. This isn’t surprising coming from Midland Brewing Company which excels at infecting their beer. I would never buy another one.
