Thanks to Gary for bringing this back to me on his travels. I've had this bottle in my possession for at least a year now.

Pours a golden-ish color with a tint of orange, thin bubbly head which fades rapidly, leaves no lacing in the chalice.

Smell starts with a smack of sour on the nose but quickly mellows out as a slight hop and woody presence comes across, picking up a nice citrus element as well.

Taste has a nice sour tartness up front that's a bit vinegar-like, it's not overpowering though because of the barrel aging, the barrel imparts some subtle nuances of wood and a hint of funk, any hoppy character has mostly fades by now but certainly played at part at some point.

***2013 Release***

Thanks to Kump for this.

Poured from a bomber.

Pours a nice gold body with a chill haze and spotted lacing. Aroma is fresh hops, very floral and citrusy, almost certainly Citra. I take a gulp and my senses are thrown for a loop! Vinous, white-wine like, sour and ends with citrusy hops. My taste buds were going crazy and i loved it. Meshed hoppy and sour perfectly, a win for me.
