COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Golden Ale created by blending the final recipe with its own barrel aged pilot beers fermented with wild yeasts and lacto. Each individual barrel contributes a unique flavor from the wood chosen and the cultures resident to achieve the subtle complexities that develop(ed) over time. A beer which starts sweet, filling the mouth with fruit-like esters and mild spiciness, changing to a tart and lingering flavor reminiscent of apples and grapefruit living amidst an earthy, citrusy hop aroma. 42% aged in wine barrels 58% Ale

A hazy dark orange beer. The aroma is sour fruit, lots of apple. The flavor is the same plus yeast and spice.

750 mL, big thanks to my man Brett for the share! Pours a cloudy peach with vivacious, rocky white head. Nose and flavor hold huge nectar fruit with apricot and peach, hints of white wine and sweet pink grapefruit, lemon, orange rind, and soft, lovely funk. Definitely can sense the ABV, but it’s not sweet and has attenuated beautifully. Really nice.

Bottle thanks to Lutter. Pours a cloudy orange with thick white head frothy head that lasts. The aroma is strong funk, oak, spice, and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with dry fruit, funk, oak, and light tart finish. Good.

I’ve been aging this guy for well over a year and it was wepl worth it. Great slightly tart aroma, smooth tart ale with wine and apples and oak, finishes so smooth. Great aging bottle.

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of sour fruit, white grape, oak, hints of vanilla, lots of green apple notes with some slight lactic notes, hints of brett come through as well. Taste was a mix of brett, oak, vanilla, into some nice biscuit, bread, fruit comes through with lemon, tart berry, hints of green apple, finishing fairly tart, slightly dry. Pretty nicely done.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Pour is dark hazed amber with a tight off white head. The nose is a balance of wood, Brett, and fruit. Wood is most forthcoming with apple skin, light mushroom and tannin. Taste is much less balanced, stronger malt undertones, brighter apple skin notes, musky mushroomy brett, fairly powerful tannic flavor. Very strong carbonation, light body, semi dry finish with a tinge of booze but not too much for the alcohol content.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours amber with a thin white head. High carbonation Aromas are funky, white pepper, caramel. Taste is funky, with the wine being very subtle. Texture is creamy. Finishes short. OK, but expected more.
