4.43/5 rDev +0.7%
Pours a cloudy dark amber. Almost flat. The smell is quite tart with a sweet fruit note underneath. I am getting some apple. The taste is quite tart. Very smooth. There is an apple essence to it. Oaky with a slight vinegar note. This is an extremely good beer.

Shared this one during the One Year Anniversary of My Wreck Tasting! Served from growler into a Crooked Stave ‘Crooked Line’ tulip. Poured a deep ruby red brown with a half finger very light tan head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, sour, tart, fruit, wood, apple, and sweet alcohol. The flavor was of sweet malt, apple, sweet alcohol, fruit, wood, sour, and tart. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. I went into this one with quite a bit of excitement if I am honest. What I found was very nice as well. The flavor was really nicely complex and very well balanced. The aroma was nice as well but just didn’t bring all the goods on the intensity as I would have liked to have seen. The barrel was definitely evident in both though which was very nice to find. I am glad I got the chance to try this one and I would do so again in a heartbeat given the opportunity.

Apple Whiskey Barrel Aged Love pours a light bodied dark amber with cherry red highlights and a slight off white lacing around the glass. The nose is sour with both Granny Smith Apple and sour cherry with light whiskey. It has a really nice level of sourness and plenty of barrel. The flavors are big and sour with a nice level of whiskey. There is a lot of sour cherry and sour apple with a good amount of oak. It has a lingering caramel apple aspect that resonates through the aftertaste. This isIt has a lot going on. Try it if you see it. a really unique sour.
