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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: minimal head, low carbonation, orange-brown in color, hazy

Smell: sharp sour mix and slight wood smell

Taste: A great mix of oak, sour mix, toasted malt, and graham crackers

Mouthfeel: sour with a touch of sweetness, medium in body, low carbonation

Overall: Another winner from Firestone Walker. Not the most complex American wild ale that I have had, but it sure is tasty. It is right up there with my favorites for non-fruity sour ales. I would get this again in a heartbeat if I could find it on tap.
