750ml into a matching CCB snifter. The brew appears a clear copper color with a creamy marshmallow fluff that is yellowish stained.
The aroma opens up with vinegar and then blends to citrus fruits and tang like guava. There is plenty of mineral character present making the nose all muddled up and not that wonderful.
The taste is tart and funky with some minerals and fruit. A soft toasty caramel grain character with quite a citrus component. Guava comes out when warm along with alcohol and some barrel and vinous notes.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest to lively amount of carbonation. It is interesting and worth trying but not something id go after again. The chard barrel really comes forward once warm, but so does the alcohol. A nice change of pace but not great either.
