This special rendition of our ginger spiced double witbier was aged over a year on French Cabernet wine barrels. It’s amazingly complex character is a marriage of ale and wine, unfolding with notes of black currant, spice, oak, vanilla and a flourish of peppery, fruity tartness.

On tap at the brewpub, I had a sample during the GTMW ticket line, but later had a full pour. I thought I enjoyed the sample, (after 4 hours of drinking in the parking lot) but did not enjoy the full pour at all. Aroma was of huge ginger and spice, it basically takes over the beer and just by smelling it you wouldn’t even know this is barrel aged, the flavor was all over the place, sour front end with a spice like finish, really dry mouthfeel was left, ugh, couldn’t even finish it.

Draft. Too much going on here, ginger, wine, tannic, leafy, vinous, sweet, tart, somehwat funky and sour, it is a mess.
