Bottle shared at Lightening Day. Thanks! Pours a nice decent hazed hue, golden orange, a bit dulled with some gentle darker glow. Frothy whitish head atop stays as a mellow frothy layer, decent ring laces ok. Aromas are gentle sweetness, dough and pear, some subtle tartness. Mellow touches of yeast, vanilla, oak. Some touches of gentle brett, dust, and mellow sweetness. Touches of oak, gentle tangerine, Chardonnay. Initial lighter end of the fold, some tangerine, white grape and melon. Nice mellow fruit presence meets a touch of dryness, oak, and mellow white wine. Subtle brett is gentle, touches of dust and cobwebs. Mellow oak, some more fruit presence, just a touch tart. A bit fuzzy, some gentle dryness, brett, and tannic oak as we move on. Some gentle sweetness starts to die out. Some nice dryness, mellow fruit, brett, and barrel. Solid.

Ontape (364) - Valley Village, California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
750 ml Bottle, Batch 8, courtesy of Lukaduke... who else? This is a fantastic beer. Pours a light golden, keeps a nice white head around the edges. Smells like a well-aged Sanctification, light fruit and big funk. Taste followed suit with lots of Brett mouth-pucker and a wave of fruit -- at different times we mentioned apple, grape, peach. A little Belgian sweetness with a great tart Brett balance. When can I get more?

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Quelle belle créature! Elle me rappelle une certaine Russian river au nez et à la première gorgée. Foin mouillé, agrumes surettes, vin blanc et cuir s’amusent dans ce délicieux liquide.

Damn this is good. A big thanks to justdrinkit for bringing this back for me from the brewery. Pours a cloudy light apricot/gold pour. Nice fluffy white head. Flavors of hops, funk, wet hay, toothpick, tart roasted lemons. Leather, and barnyard funk. Damn straight.

This is fantastic. The normal farmhouse pale while also quite good, serves as a prefect stock for this barrel aged stunner. Drink for balanced sour flavor and intriguing aroma, or just drink.
