Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Premiére marks the grand opening of The Bruery Provisions in Old Towne Orange. A barrel aged strong golden ale, its a great introduction to our new location. Spicy with flavors of honey, caramel, light tropical fruits and bourbon. A beer that will surely mature beautifully with age.

ABV: 10.4%, IBU: 30, SRM: 7, Release: One time only

A: Pours a slightly hazy darkish golden, capped by a finger of frothy white head. Retention is good as it slowly recedes to a thin layer of foam and holds steady there.

S: Lots of fruit up front with pears, peaches, apricots, and apples, followed by moderate oaky notes of vanilla. Base of sweet bread and caramel, along with some hints of honey and light, peppery spice.

T: Opens up with sweet bread, caramel and loads of ripe fruit - pears, apricots, apples, and some light grapes. Bourbon comes in on the mid-palate but is very restrained - detectable, but doesn't overpower the rest of the beer. Some light vanilla lingers through the back end along with sweet fruits and some very light sweet spices.

M: Full bodied width creamy, low to moderate carbonation.

D: Could be a little bit lighter, but the aroma and flavors are excellent. Great use of barrel aging.
