3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - pours hazy golgen nuclear yellow with zero head. S - aromas of Chardonnay up front, notes of barnyard funk and white grapes, hints of sour. M - nice rounded sour/Chardonnay brew. Subtle sour notes. nice full bodied pleasant palate. Complex and not over powering. T - oaky buttery Chardonnay and white grapes up front. Sour note of limes and lemon, light funk and vinegar on the palate. Nice lingering sweeter Chardonnay alcohol warmed endnotes of the oak and orange peel as well. O - very good wine barrel ale. Took to the barrels and really absorbed the Chardonnay. 7+

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 Bottle I brought to WtWBA Brooklyn 2012. Pours a light, hazy body with nice white lacing. Aroma is sharp tart, funk, oak, and wine. Mouthfeel is puckering, great tart fruit, green grapes, wood, funk, lemon, and sour citrus. Awesome, one of my fav beers of the day, and one of my fav beers from The Bruery. Need to grab another one of these guys.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle… Hazy straw-colored ale with no head. The nose is dank, musty and fruity with a splash of white wine. Medium to full-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor offers citrusy tartness and dry white wine notes. The relatively high level of alcohol is palpable, but inoffensive. Finishes tart and fruity and then dries out a touch.
