Thanks to Mothman for breaking this out at the recent tasting.
I had never heard of this before, but as soon as it was described to me I knew I would like it.
Pours a cloudy and murky golden-orange color, with about two fingers of white fluffly head. Retention is good and leaves some nice lacing.
The nose is fantastic. Smells like a Wit on 'roids. I get apples and pears, spices and wood. The characters picked up from the barrel aren't as prevelent, but they add just enough to make this extremely enticing.
The taste is fruity and spicey, with light bourbon, oak and vanilla notes. This is a great tasting beer. I had a feeling I would like it, but was totally blown away.
Appropriately high, but fine carbonation along with a medium body make for a great feel. It tingles in the mouth to excentuate the flavors. Drinkability is awesome, I didn't pick up any of the ABV. 11%, you gotta be kidding me!
This is a great beer, as the light barrel notes make this one unique and very enjoyable. Thanks Ben for breaking this one out.
