Bottle (750 ml). Slightly hazy yellow with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is very lemon/lime forward and reminds me of the Barrel-Aged Flora Rustica that I drank a couple of weeks ago. Thereís also winey notes, oak, brettanomyces, yeast and light spices. Taste is also mainly of lemon/lime along with wine, oak, light vanilla, brettanomyces and light spices. Nice citric/acidic touch. Alcohol is very well hidden (our bottle said 11,03% abv). Medium body. Fizzy carbonation. Slightly winey mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish. Very good lemon/lime forward golden ale. The wine barrel give this beer a couple layers of complexity. Really drinkable, especially considering the high abv. Itís my second beer from this brewery (the other was La Tache) and Iím really impressed. I will definitely look for their other beers!

Bottle shared by thebitterendaz. Hazy yellow pour with light herbal and citrus aroma notes. Flavor starts out slightly tart with notes of wine barrel, lemon and pear, then gradually finish to a more funky, spiced finish. Really drinks like a 1/2 gueuze, 1/2 farmhouse beer. ABV is very well hidden - so crisp and easy drinking.

McNeillR (1679) - Edinburgh, 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

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.

HMOG 2015. Thanks to jrob21 for bringing. Tried two batches. Older batch was actually a bit more enjoyable. Vinous, wine/oak, spices, with a touch of funk. Funk comes through much more in the newest batch.
