gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
The beer is light golden with a small, fizzy white head. The aroma offers lemons, wild yeast, grass, funk. Herbal and earthy tones with a delicate sweetness balanced by a light funk. Highly drinkable and really smooth on the palate. This one is a sleeper. Light spice quality. Beautiful balance and so easy to drink. Where is the alcohol presence? Masterfully hidden.

drainpour (30) - Santa Rosa, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Was underwhelmed by this beer. Pretty good, just not great. It has a fairly pleasant aroma, some acidity and barrel and grape, the palate is thin, watery, champagne like carbonation, straight welches grapefruit juice, very little barrel or oak some vegetal tastes. It was quite boozy at first sip but my palate lost that as I drank a glass. 9%abv, could be toned back a bit.

50belair (2796) - Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a big white head. Mild citrus and barrel aromas. Mildly sour with lemon zest, citrus, pear, and white grape vinous highlights. Mild caramel malt, oak, and vinegar low lights. Not overly complex or tart. Tasty and easy sippin’. A bit on the effervescent side.

McNeillR (1606) - SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2014 Pale cloudy light golden. Light white ringed head. Soft soapy dusty lemon. Gummy citrus. Clinks of passionfruit. Clean and sweet. Faint stewed pineapple. Very clean and neat. Smashing through with such an ABV without any harshness from the length of time in barrell.

Bottle, Independence Tasting, thanks to Paul for the long haul
