3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12.7oz bottle. Poured an amber color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of fruitiness, candi sugar, caramel, and yeast. Tastes of the same fruitiness, lighter wood, and spices. If I had this blind, would not have guessed it was aged in bourbon barrels.
Aroma, hoppy and citrusy
Appearance is copper with mostly white 1.5 finger head . Very carbonated and lots of lacing.
Taste,starts very happy and goes downhill from there lemon vanilla light bourbon pretty bitter lots of carbonation. Does not finish well the barrel-aged aspect kicks in.
Palate, crisp and dry.
Overall, the label says it all experimental sort of Ale there’s a whole lot going on here none of which seems to be completed or finished if they had left it alone as a hoppy Style Beer and we probably be pretty good I don’t think the barrel aging does it well at all .Lemon, vanilla Oak ,bourbon and hops just don’t seem to go well together has a pretty funky finish and aftertaste SPDickerman (1315) - Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2016
Pours clear orange with a small white head. Smells fruity, earthy, vanilla, and oak. Taste is sweet, oak, vanilla, and fruity. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Blue Mountain Local Species finishes with a pleasant sweet fruitiness. MikeJslc (778) - Alabama, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Deep gold, clear, off-white head. Fruity, citrusy hops, pepper, strongly oaky. Well balanced, interesting beer. DandyWolfFloyd (1212) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Aroma - Belgian yeast, spices, and some alcohol
Appearance - the body is a hazy amber. The white head is 2+" and settles slowly. Great lacing.
Taste - barley, spices (esp. coriander), Belgian yeast, and some slightly pungent hops.
Palate - medium body, average carbonation, and a mix of light bitters and some light alcohol. brownaler (707) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Strong bourbon flavor balance by Belgian malts and American hops. The aging in barrels of this beer seem to complement it well.

A smooth easy drinking beer with a hint of vanilla.

Draft. Pours slightly hazy orange golden with nice lacing. The aroma has Belgian yeast, straw, oak, and bourbon. Nice flavor, quite dry with a slightly bitter finish. Very balanced. Medium bodied, a hint of booze and lively carbonation. Enjoyable. SpringsLicker (3677) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Thanks to decaturstevo for the share.
Rusty orange/brown pour with a generous white head.
Fruity sweet aroma of malts and Belgian yeast.
The flavor is balanced and fruity. Not too sweet or bitter. Some light spice. I never picked upon any barrel thing here. The flavor is not as complex as the aroma hints at,but not a bad beer.

Slightly hazed gold/amber pour with white head and lace. Aroma is bready malt and fruitiness. Flavor is bready maltiness, oakiness,and a slight sour. Medium body with good carbonation. Maybe a touch of earthy hop flavor but no aroma. A touch of hop bitter. Ok by me
