Poured into a Delirium snifter on 2/2/13
Shared at a tasting by MbpBugeye (RIP). Thanks Seth.
A) Bright golden yellow with some cloudiness. This must be flat because I could get but a scarce few bubbles even with my best BCBS-blah-blah-variations style pour. Stands to reason there was no head and no lace.
S) Stinky cheese, vinegar, sour vinous notes, damp oak. The aroma is minimal in terms of mustiness. It's pretty good, actually.
T) Sharp, sour brevity. Quite vinous; heavy on the grapes. It's close to drinking slightly musty grape juice. Modest oak notes.
M) The body is light and fairly thin but it's actually not too bad for having essentially no carbonation. Dry, musty finish.
D) Overall, it's a bit on the bright side but I think it's fair enough.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a goblet. Acquired as an extra from Bill, thank you!
A- Pours an orange body with a small white head that reduces quickly to a white ring.
S - woah there! This stuff is funky! Barnyard, leather, sour lactic, grapes, musty, oak, sour lemons, and dare I say it - horse blanket. Very inviting.
T - upfront is a punch in the mouth of sour lemons, white wine, vinegar, sour apple, lactic acid. The follow throw exhibits lots of oaky, leathery, musty, funky notes. The barrel leaves an aftertaste of oak and vanilla.
M- high carbonation , easy drinking light body.
This beer is SO underrated. It is a superb representation of how a gueuse should taste - and the barrel adds complexity and flavor. I can compare this to the better know gueuzes and American wild ales.
