Honestly, I didnít like this beer. Interesting appearance with odd chunks of various flotsam perhaps fruit in addition to the yeast. The aroma was sweet with some skunky fruit. The flavor was an off balance combination of fruit and dry that seemed to go nowhere. Ugly dryness with a bit of dirt and sickly maltiness, and cloying wiess failure glued on around the edges. Iím sure it was a good effort and Iím glad to see that someone liked it. If you like Barley Wine, this is not a very good example. It might be worth laying down as the overall effect is of something raw.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a lacy white head. Notes of caramel, cologne, cereal grains, milk chocolate. Kind of weird.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle in Glenwood Springs with friends, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks Man! Pour is hazy amber-brown with a small tan head and good lacing. Bready, twangy, somewhat husky, tangy, caramelly, and figgy aroma. Taste is homebrew twang, grapey, slightly sour, husky, perfumey, grassy, and caramelly. Medium body with high carbonation. Some seriously off characteristics.

2010 bottle thanks to Stephen. Pours a big hazy, light golden orange appearance with a tan head. Aroma has some olives, orange citrus, and spices. Twangy, tart citrus flavor with some lime and veggie. Some wine notes. Ehhh, not very good.

2012 bottle opened in 2014 by Cbfobes. Hazy unfiltered golden-tan body. Tastes faded. Odd mushroom off tones. The wheat has deteriorated, but the BW aspect isnít so bad. Past itís prime, devolved.

Golden orange pour with a white head. Aromas of light malts and notes of honey, light spice. Flavor is similar. Not nearly as complex or robust as I would have liked

Not a weiss or barley wine. Very bland and nothing distinctive.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013 Bottle. Pours a clear, medium amber, thin white head with mediocre retention and lacing. Nose is hints of barnyard funk, honey, malt, vanilla, wet cardboard. Mouth is medium-full bodied, creamy wheat prevalent on the palate, slick on the tongue, mild sweetness, with caramel, oakiness, vanilla, golden raisins, some light breadiness and tobacco on the finish. I might have to pick up another bottle and see how this ages.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: APR 26, 2014 2013 vintage. Pours orange-gold with a minimal white head. Aroma is celery and tomato soup - strange. Taste is very light and mildly sweet spaghetti oís. My friend says, "it eats better than it fucking drinks". I said, "drink your fucking spaghetti oís and shut up!".
After further thought (the next day), this one had to be infected. Will give it a second try at some point. Made for great diatribe, though.
