Draft. Crystal clear amber body with minimal off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, grape/vinous, some orange. Taste is moderately sweet, grape, some orange, light wood. Light-medium body, low carbonation. While this beer was enjoyable, I really don’t get it. Why would you age any beer for such a long time in a wine barrel, when the result would be to completely overpower the beer characteristics of the product? And to do so to an IPA, thereby eliminating its raison d’être, its hoppiness, seems even more absurd.

Syrah barrels, to be specific. Draft. Hazy amber color, large bubble white edge head. Aroma of lemon, white wine,mpeach. Taste is bitter pine resin and lemony wine, an odd combo.

On tap at the Fred. Dark gold pour, with a medium, beige head, and great lacing. The aroma is orange peels, honeysuckle, a pretty strong wine component (chardonnay, or perhaps pinot grigio). Very sweet, vinous flavor, with light hops. Surprisingly heavy body, acidic, dry, and hard. Overall, this was a great treatment on a good IPA.
