served on-tap at the RFD Strong Ale Tasting on 2/26/12. review from notes.

A: hazy. brownish red hue.
S: barnyard and horsehair aromas start things off. nice fruity notes. sour cherries.
T: pears. bananas. barn stall. the tart flavor dries out the body and makes it the most refreshing brew in the Tasting.
M: little bit more on the zesty side. medium body.
D: pretty unique brew here. some kind of souring agent adds a layer of complexity to what seems like a pretty average american barley.

A: This poured clear copper with a bit of light tan head.
S: It smelled like faint caramel and orange hops, with some roasted barley and a bit of vanilla.
T: It tasted like sweet caramel and sugared figs, followed by sharp citrus and a bit of vanilla. It had a strong bitter but clean aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a nicely balanced and tasty barleywine, with sweet and bitter elements. The scent was faint, but the flavor was strong, and it had nice body. It wasn't too hot either, but the lingering bitterness was a bit harsh, which made this not as easy to drink. Ultimately, this is a good average barleywine, with nothing terribly wrong with it, but also nothing unique or interesting about it.
