3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at The Farmersí Cabinet in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a cloudy, pale golden orange color with golden yellow edges and a half finger white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. †Sporadic chunks of lace left behind.
Musty, funky aroma that isnít as vinegary as the other variations. †Has more of a solvent like acetic presence and a stronger barrel/wood character than the other treatments. †Lots of barnyard, cobweb and lactic funk followed by mustard seed and subtle fruit notes. †Mostly funk and barrel in the nose.
On the fuller end of medium bodied with a strong tart, puckering presence that isnít too acetic or harsh. †Decent amount of sourness but itís countered in the finish by the weird maple presence. †Barrel is stronger in this treatment with lots of dry wood and sweet maple. †Really odd counterpoint to sour acidity, citrus and light fruit. †As it warms Iím picking up some caramel apple and other light fruit. †Interesting but just a strange combination of flavors going on here.

Pouring at The Festival in Worcester. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Gorgeous aromas of pluots, funk and acid, tropical fruit and mango. Gentle sweetness leads into wood and maple. Soft and sweet, bright acid. Phenomenal. Standout of the day. Delicious.

On tap at The Festival in Worcester, session 1. Light straw pour with ample frothy head. Maple, quenching lactic acid, pineapple, and fruit cocktail abound. Light body with a super dry acidic finish. This beer was another highlight of the fest for me. Awesome.
