Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy golden hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is peppercorn, huge oak, straw, lactic. Mouthfeel is good with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweet with a tart following and wood tannin finish. Overall this is an interesting brew but VERY heavily oaked.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a medium size foamy head with limited retention and not much lacing. Aroma of tart and oak notes with some light funky ester is quite nice. Taste is also dominated by tart and oak notes with some funky ester with low level of acidity. Hops presence had pretty much disappeared which is no surprised considering the age of the bottle. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Quite complex beer that retained some good drinkability.

Bottle at Paul’s. Poured an orange bidy with a smaller fizzy white head. Aroma was bad, notes of urinal puck, funk, earthiness, acorns, lemons and band aids. Slightly thinner body with a harsh acidic burn despite creamy carbonation. Flavor is better than the aroma, notes of lemons, earth, toast, slight vinegar and funk. Meh
