Pours reddish copper with a sandy lacey head. The aroma brings tart Brett and some sweet malts, what a surprisingly pleasant combo. Flavor brings wild yeast for sure, surprisingly bigger than the resiny maltness. But both aspects are so huge making it a big beer overall, and not in a boozy way by any means. solidfunk (9178) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 27, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2012 Brett is a very good buddy here. He rocks that barley like Zeppelin rocks the numerous things they rock. Brett flows through the malt like it owns the shit, but on the level that it controls the shit. A wonder of infusion. Like disco meeting house. Rap meeting jazz. A witch’s brew of goodness. pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Half-growler fill from the brewery during the week. Pours a hazy but somewhat-transparent deep brown color with minimal head. Smells like a tame sour; my girlfriend thought it smelled like flowers, for some reason. Has a good sweetness without being overly so. The brett helps balance out what could be an overpowering sweetness (I’m not a huge fan of barleywines b/c of the sweetness). Not their best offering, but good for sure.

Poured into a tulip, cloudy orange amber pour.
Didn’t smell too strong, actually smells like an IPA, with some appealing sourness.
Tastes sweet up front followed with hoppy goodness and some sour at the back.
It’s a barleywine that I would session drink before I realize I’m too drunk. Good or bad thing? Not sure. Overall great beer.
support local breweries, especially community beer works. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2012
draft at CBW, somewhat murky/yeasty burnt orange pour. Brett heavy aroma and flavor, fruity, funk, bandaid, light spree candy. Brett dominates the BW here but i really enjoyed this unique beer. Dry bretty finish. nice job rudolf
