Sammy (8636) - Toronto, Ontario, - MAY 5, 2013
Bottled April/2010. From private Quebec buying group.A fresh yeast aroma, with some funk. Somewhat gushing, prewarning enabled us to treat my weeds. Cloudy orange with large soapy head. A good tartness,though builds to somewhat vinegar with repeated samples, licorice, grape. Good drinkability. Nice for the hotter weather. Neat complexity-Johnsense. Oak rounds it out.

Different than it is entered on ratebeer. 6.5%, not 7.6%, no mention of barleywine, just a sour red (though very very light red at that. Hopped with citrusy hops that add an extra level of twang to the back end of the flavor. Oak, funk, tropcal and citrusy fruits. Good brew."

crossovert (7389) - Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
750ml bottle. A barleywine that goes for the tart fruits in relation to the caramel malts, and it surprisingly works, slightly oxidized but seems like a newer vintage.
