Strykzone (7848) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2017
Sampled at Rorie’s tasting. Weird story on the bottle. The beer is complex and interesting. Tart and wild. Woody and woodsy. Fun, until that story. ineedbeer (2325) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 29, 2017
Poured from a 750 ml bottle.
Aroma is nice and fruity with currants and some light citrus notes. A bit of an earthy, herbal funk with hints of oak.
Pours a golden orange with a medium white head that recedes quickly and disappears. No lacing and faint legs.
Flavor is fairly acidic with moderate citrus notes and a bit of a sharp note. Moderate currant notes with some medium light oak notes. Light bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice beer. Lots of fruit and good funk and oak notes. Tasty, but a bit off as well; I can’t put my finger on what bothers me about it but perhaps it’s the wine barrels. BuckeyeBoy (9216) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 14, 2017

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Originally reviewed 2/9/2015.
Very hazy. Small white head.
I don’t smell currants. Acidic smelling. Very yeasty. Strong pale malt. Fruity. Maybe even a little bit of berry to it.
Taste has a strong sourness. Stone fruit more than currant. Very yeasty. Gets a little bit intense in the back end. Spike in white wine flavor in the finish.
Medium heavy. Medium carbonation.
Well, I don’t get the currants, but this is still a great beer.
