4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Waxed bottle from Bu11zeye. Pours hazy orange with a 3 finger creamy off-white or beige head. Aroma is amazing fruit and oak. Full bodied - possibly due to the strong carbonation. Not sparkling - just a lot. Flavor is toffee, light stone fruit, lots of oak/wood, and something like barnyard/leather. Like a light touch of brett. This was bottled 10-8-12. One can only imagine what it will be like in the future. Good stuff indeed.

Brownish pour, light tan head. Flavors are muddled and Im sure this is infected. Lots of rotten fruit, old wood...not really so great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 10/8/12 thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a hazy to murky golden hued body. Massive off-white head for such a big beer. Aromas are vinous, marmalade, dark fruits, leather, rich toffee with mild melanoidins, cotton candy, some dry oak (vanillin and lactone), quite a few esters. Interesting. Flavors are estery, leathery, plums, dark fruits, dates, light marmalade, currant (which I associate with sours), vinous, toasted oak and brown sugar. Very fruit forward. Boozy. Very lively carbonation, medium dry for how big it is (albeit it feels sticky at some moments), warming, low to medium tannin. High carbonation on 10% beer, huge ester, vinous, an rustic funk hints that this might have picked up some critters in the barrel. That said if the bottles stay relatively stable, I could see this actually aging pretty well for about 3-5 years.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer pours a cloudy orange color with a medium fizzy off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and fruit. Medium to full body with flavors of tropical fruits, caramel malt and oaky tannins. The finish is malty with lingering fruity esters in the aftertaste. Interesting beer overall that I initially thought was a strong Saison of some sort. Decent overall.
