3.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle number 264/276. Split with Ryan011235.
A- This beer is another darker one, darker than most of the style but not by all that much. Its really a deep red with some purples, caramels and browns. A small cap of soft, pillowy froth washes up against the sides of the glass. Its prone to patches of lace and pillows of floating bubbles. Swirling easily coaxes out lots more soft carbonation.
S- Right away barrels are on your nose, they eel with wheat and very honey.
What Im trying to say is that there is a musty, old barrel smell that only has trace amounts of bourbon notes left. The honey is there providing a nice clover aroma and some sweetness that helps keep things together. Wheat is obvious. Its grainy and snappy. Plenty of stinging alcohol, some of which is smoothed out by bourbon, but most of which is from the 12%abv.
Let this warm before fully enjoying the aroma. It really needs to open and once it does some of those odd must barrel notes fade out.
T- The taste also highly benefits from some time to warm and open. Bourbon is more apparent here than it was in the aroma. It gives the flavor profile a silken vanilla flavor that rides over an earthy oak base. Wheat livens things up towards the mid to finish. It has a nice snappy flavor. Honey is nicely perceivable. Unlike many beers with honey, Wood Ya Honey actually tastes like it had honey. There is a clover honey sweetness that lingers in the back of the mouth. Its very nice.
M- Low carbonation. The bubbles are as soft as they look when the glass is swirled. Its actually a pretty smooth beer with a full body. Yes, this is Jackie O’s so the finish is dry, but not overly so.
D- One of the better ones from the Athens crew.
