On tap at Bistro BA fest poured a cloudy tarnished gold with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of straw, peach, oak, vanilla and barnyard funk. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, oak, vanilla, fruittiness, barnyard and a hint of leather with a crisp dry lingering funky fruity finish. AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - NOV 15, 2010

hazy amber, no head, trace of lace. nose of earth malt, vanilla, trace of fruit. flavor had hints of fruit, caramel, but also a pronounced corn syrupiness, almost candy corn. medium bodied, sweet finish. much too sweet for my taste. sampled at FoBAB ’09. deyholla (12590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2017 On tap at Jackie O’s during the Barrel Aged Beer Festival. Poured a hazy deep gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had sweet grains and cereal with a bit of pea and a bit of wine. Flavor didn’t come together well with an odd pea note, overly sweet grain and a wine note that didn’t really come out.

Draft at rare beer section at Stone 14th Anniversary. One of the highlights in my opinion. Golden color with white head. Aroma was very sweet sugar and some oak presence. Sweet like a barley wine almost. Very good. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 21, 2010
