Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy light orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and grassy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is easy to drink but nothing too special.

On tap at Freetail 12 oz. $6.50 goblet 6.8.12.

Deep gold body chill haze thin broken layer of head. Big waft of orange peel in the nose a bit of cardamon no discernible hop aroma a bit floral if anything. Taste is a bit on the sweet side wee spice . Mouthfeel medium finish dry but a bit sticky. Needed more spice to offset the sweetness. Note thid batch ABV listed ad 8.5%.

It’s landed! This pours a light golden yellow, like concord grape juice. Exceptional clarity and crispness in the glass. Intriguing aroma, with a distinct tartness that’s immediately present, rounded, musty and citrusy. One of Freetail’s barrel-aged alchemic creations. Tastes sour, tart and really funky. There’s a light effervescence to it that coats the mouth followed by a pleasing finish with a flavor reminiscent of white wine or a champagne. Mildly tart and tannic, with a dry finish—until you realize around the edges there’s a rounded sweetness that makes it all the more interesting.
