COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An ever-changing small batch blend that uses a farmhouse brown ale base with any number of herbs or spices carefully chosen by our brewers to make a wine-like and complex beer unlike any other. It’s barrel-aged for roughly one year and every vintage is different. Cellar for two to four years, depending on vintage.

Mora2000 (5705) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Thanks to 5000 for sending this bottle. The beer pours a red color with a white head. The aroma is full of sour cherries with some vinegar notes thrown in. The flavor is more complex. I get some light tart dark fruit and cherry notes as well as some toffee and caramel malt. The tartness and sweetness is very well balanced. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael. The beer is dark orange with a quarter inch of off white head. The aroma is inviting, with scents of citrus fruit, spice, white wine, grapes. Nice flavor, with prominent grape and tannic characters. White grape juice with a touch of wild yeast. Light bodied, but not thin. Nice feel. Overall, very enjoyable.
