The pour is a hazed orange color with an off-white head. Sweet caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and honey. Good bourbon aroma, plenty of vanilla, and some oak. Actually a touch of hops in the background. Sweet sugar/malt flavors dominate. Heavy on the caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. As with the nose, lots of bourbon and vanilla with a light oak flavor.

deyholla (6954) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle thanks to a trade. Pours a hazy deep gold with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice barrel note with a hint of light berry and sweet grains. Flavor starts with sweet grains and caramel with sweet grains backed by bourbon.

Tap at brewery. Aroma is woody fruit and bourbon with apple and bourbon flavor. Pretty boozy but quite nice.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2012 On tap at the February 23rd release at Town Hall in a 10 oz. goblet. Pour is a light, breezy orange/yellow hybrid, very still & quiet. Nose is a slipdash of bourbon, mild sweetness. Tumaltuous Rare is in rarefied company during the barrel-aged week & doesn’t quite live up to its storied brethren of years past. Big bundle of sweet malts, distant caramel, & a big dose of barrel sum this one up; it does get better as it warms, simple but tasty. As with every beer this week, though, ridiculously easy to sip. Clearly in the minority of homers around the bar (they all found it orgasmic), I found this to be a good, solid effort; love to see more barrel-aged wheatwines in the future. Good beer.

thome50 (1079) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with billowy white head. Aroma is an awesome Christmas tree sap and needles. Really unique and interesting considering the style. Taste is smooth caramel, some vanilla, malt, sugar. Overall, this bottle wasn’t infected as some have suspected. Aroma was the best part but was unique to the style. Didn’t really taste the barrel.

On tap at Town Hall Brewery, muddy brown color with white head. Scent is a lot of barrel with a bit if caramel and vanilla. Taste is similar, but has a bubbly whine character, bit too sweet, over takes the barrel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sherm1016 (1177) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Draft at Town Hall, left over from Barrel Aged Week 2013. Pours a murky., dark amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is boozy, whiskey, floral. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, boozy, whiskey, some caramel sweetness, a hint of wheat in there, some floral hops, with a malty, boozy finish. This beer did not stand up well to the barrel. Not terrible, but lots of barrel.

750ml bottle from Alpar, shared it at Markwise’s Bday bash, poured a golden color, aromas of vanilla, bourbon, wood, and some light caramel. Flavors are light caramel, vanilla, and some bourbon. Nice beer overall, thanks Alex.
