Aged in 1965 grain casks. Hazy gold amber beer. Dry and crisp palate. Highly unusual! Taste is dominated by fresh nectarines, peach and sublte splash of pineapple and even a little strawberry! All this fresh fruit is balanced by sourish whiskey and wood. A brave experiment that almost comes off 100%. If the sourness could have been dialled down a bit this would have been a remarkable beer.

Leighton (20606) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Harpoons at the ready, gents! Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell during Pauls Birthday Celebration - London. Thanks to Paul Ahab Scopey for leading this expedition. Pours clear, yellow-gold, lightly effervescent, with a moderate foamy white head; looks quite fresh for a beer of its vintage. The aroma holds dried citrus fruits, hay, pale malts, notes of white bread. Medium sweet flavor with decent alcohol punch, dry wood, hay, light bitterness, dry pale malts. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish, slight minerals, further dried pale malts, mild dryness, dried citrus, some hay bitterness, hints of peach and other stone fruits. A novel beer. Certainly fun and interesting to try one of BrewDogs first experimental beers. Overall, decent. It does drink fairly well for the ABV.

Hazy deep blond color. Aroma of strawberry jam; it reminds me some Dogfish Head I just got a sip: undrinkable! Extremely harsh and bitter flavor, chemicals, some fruits and wood, but I really dont want to drink the rest of the glass just to find out disgusting, like the Dogfish Head I mentioned
