Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Halcyondays on 09-11-2011

This liberation begins its journey as DBA then continues through a “chrysalis” process involving 87% French and 13% American Oak barrels, and our proprietary collection of micro flora. To blend, we selected beer matured eight to 24 months in barrels, creating a synergistic beer. Immediately, toasted oak and lemon pith swirl on the nose and palate, followed by an amazing harmony of vanilla, coconut, Earl Grey tea and spice. The finish is crisp, with mouth-watering acidity and chewy tannins. Since we age, blend and bottle these beers once a year, there will be slight variation with each release.

This is the best wild ale you can get. It is not so sour you couldn't have a bottle of it like so many sours. It is balanced and refreshing. The finish is medium and does not linger for a long time but enough to taste the nuances of the beer. It is funky and citrusy. This is a great beer. FW knocks it out of the park again.
