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.
