ryanfolty (1780) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2013
November 20, 2013 on cask at Red Cow. Semi-opaque orange pour with no head. Aroma was fruity, spice and wood. Taste was consistent with the aroma, but the fruit and wood are dominant with a bit of spice and dryness in the finish. Smooth, but a bit thin. This was good though the flavors seem more mellow. I liked the Applewood variant better as it enhanced the flavors.

On tap at Red Cow, pours a hazy golden orange with a thin head and spotty lacing. Aroma is some Belgian yeast and some fruit pulp. Taste is similar, little bit of ash/woodiness in it. Was better than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask. Hazy orange that turns to yellow towards th bottom of the glass. Small pillow of foam rests atop too. Aroma is filled with citrus. No real campfire aspects. Taste is citrus, usual yeastiness, and a hint of ash. Smooth and creamy texture. I wish there was less hop presence and more aspects of the woods and campfire. Still solid none the less.

arminjewell (5720) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Pours hazy orange/yellow with white head at Darkness Day 2010. Aroma of spicy yeast, with notes of lemon, wood, and apricot. Taste is sweet lemon, ash, and apricot with a note of spice, finishes fairly sweet and a touch dry. The way this brew melds together is remarkable, drinkable and highly complex.

CLevar (377) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Had on cask while waiting for Darkness at DDay 2010. Little to no head. Super smooth. Some of the wood flavor coming through, but not much. The wood serves more to mellow some of the flavors...Actually prefer this to the regular stuff.

Glass at Darkness days. Pour is bright orange and murky with no head. Big lemon and honey and musty scents. Taste is lemon citrus and musty flavor. Beer was calm and slick with a chaulky finish. Tasty and interesting.

Beer #16 at GTMW ’09, on cask at the Real Ale Tent. Considering how many branches our ash tree is shedding, I may want to know if I can use the wood like this. Cloudy, orangey-brown color, no head at all. The foam went right up my nose when I tried to smell it (occupational hazard). But I mostly get some light, likely American hop. Definitely an good example of a cask beer. Since I’ve not been hit in the mouth with a baseball bat, I can’t quite say what ash tastes like. But there’s a decent wood quality, not as pronounced as oak, but it helps keep me interested.
