750, oof this is 11%. No mustard seeds, but i guess thats not a bad thing. A thin boozy lame subpar Belgian strong. Barrels do nothing to improve this. not impressed. That said, nothing really offensive to warrant a lower rating.

Pours a slightly cloudy straw amber with one finger of off-white head. Nose is lightly acidic with a large brett presence, pineapple and fresh cut citrus. Flavor is really nice, very dry and citrusy. Zesty with fresh pineapple and heavy brett influence. Lightly tannic and cider, definitely an apple component to this.

Theydon_Bois (20425) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle at RBESG ’14, day 4 not so grand tasting at Craft Clerko, 10/08/14 thanks to the Cad. Lightly hazed golden with moderate off white edgeing. Nose is tarte fruit rinds, oaky wood, soured berry notes, straw, must. Taste comprises light booze, rich fruit mix, spice, tangy dark fruits, light caramel. Medium + body, fine carbonation, lightly warming booze in the close. Decent enough barley wine, getting the BA woodyness but necessarily calvados.

Bottle - Sweet apple and light barrel notes. Cloudy gold with no head. Apples and some oak notes. More like a boozy cider. Not a fan.
