carry over review from the Grassroots/Kissmeyer listing.
500ml bottle poured into a Prairie Dino tulip.

A~ glowing light orange with a soft white head and a lot of lacing.

S~ tons of lemon up front along with floral and tea like characters. lots of wine barrel funk on the back end. also a little hay/straw like aspects.

T~ the lemongrass comes in first and punches you right in the face! followed by a burst of lemony tartness, oak, and wine barrel funk. a bunch of chamomile on the back end that lingers on the tongue.

M~ very refreshing and crazy drinkable, a little surprising for a wine barrel aged brew. wait never mind haha! perfect carbonation, exactly where i like it for this style.

O~ this is incredible, no surprise it went so fast. you can really tell exactly what went into this brew, its just so well balanced! i really love what HF has been doing with wine barrels lately. Le Sarrasin along with this both have very similar barrel characteristics, i wouldn't be surprised if they used the same type of wine barrel. this is also very similar to Tired Hands Parageusia1, i think they've been talking haha! now lets just hope for another HF/Grassroots Tired Hands colab.! but in the mean time we have these amazing works of art to hold us over. thankfully!
