Decided to cap off my night with this gem, Really a very fine example of the style and of barrel aging and aside from that it came highly recommended, so to be honest how could I resist right? Served chilled into a white birch glass, this one was consumed on 11/01/2010.

The pour is a very light yellow in color, light haze to it with a nice and full head of white on top that really has some legs to it as it coats the entire inside of the glass and sticks to just about every that it possibly can before settling down to a still respectable two inches that stayed throughout the session.

Aroma is tart apples right off the bat, very crisp and clean with a nice sour grape coming through as it warms. But then I take the first sip and its over. Clean, clear, crisp and perfectly balanced, it simply stole the show for me. A great hit of sour and funk right at the front, lots of bright fruit flavors, really just a wonderful job here at bringing it all together I have to say. Clean apples, grapes, light grains, a touch of peach are all wonderfully prominent here as well as a light touch of barrel flavor that barely peaks its head up long enough for you to notice. Such a light, crisp and well carbonated body yielded a wonderfully balanced and even feel that left a crisp, dry flavor on the palate that instantly had me looking for more.

Overall it was sublime, one of the best offerings from anyone I have had in a long time. Very well done.
