COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique Barley Wine Style beer is brewed iwth 57% wheat, 43% barley, and German hops. We boil the 25.2 Plato wort for three hours. Then we start the fermentation with our Hefe Weizen yeast and finish it with a Scottish Ale yeast. Bare Tree is then oak aged for over one year before its release. The resulting product is extremely complex with flavors of caramel, melon, apricot, vanilla, oak, black pepper, and subtle banana. The flavors come in large part from the raw ingredients and this will vary from year to year. Bare Tree is ready to drink now, but like wine, will age in the bottle for the next several years. So, whether you decide to enjoy a bottle now or wait many years, the Two Brothers family offer a toast: "With every bare tree lives the promise of a new life." CHEERS. The 2002 vintage was aged in whisky and wine barrels.

Each vintage is rated here. Seperate vintages do not differentiate in recipe but do in their barrel usage. Because of this and Brewers Intent without changing of names or labels and leaving no differentiation for the beer drinker, these are not seperate listings. If Two Brothers decides to specifically market these products based on their barrel type in the future, changes can be made.

Had this on draft at Blind Tiger. Delicious and overwhelmingly complex. Poured a rich amber-orange color with a fine, light head. Smelled very fruity. Tasted of many fruits; I detected pear and apple the most. The hefe yeast gave it some nice wheaty elements as well. A really big, strong beer and I enjoyed it immensely.
