Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Complex beer brewed with redwood tips and New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops - 35% was soured in stainless steel - of the remaining beer 60% was aged in red and white wine barrels and 40% split between Brandy and Bourbon Barrels for aging. All of these beers were blended with a small amount of Grand Cru (Brother Davids’s Belgian ales aged in wine barrels).

On tap at Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY for $6 a 12oz.

A- Pours a murky reddish brown with a thin off white head that fades quickly to a ring around the glass leaving spotty lacing.

S- Mildly buttery and very tart, kind of like buttered popcorn mixed with lemon juice. A little red and white wine and maybe a little brandy, hard to decipher through the butter.

T- metallic, buttery, zesty, lemon juice, green apple, honey, mushrooms. A lot going on here. Not picking up much barrel.

M- Bubbly, sharp and a lingering wine like finish

O- I will try to revisit this one if it remains on tap long enough. Really wanted to pick up the barrel notes but just couldn't.
