750ml bottle with silver pressure cap. Vintage 2014.
poured into a pair of HF wine stems.
Appearance: light orange bodied beer with 3 fingers of white head that slowely drops down to thick cap. Great staying power on the head with thick yet spotty lacing left on the glass.
Smell: This one is modertely funky. Lots of white wine barrel notes that are overpowered by the funk. Fruity hops with low bitter aroma.
Taste: Moderate funkiness. Surprisingly enough the white wine notes are not very strong compared to the nose. Light tannins and white grape. Lite bitterness from the hops. Musty and rotten hay.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. As this beer warms up it seems to get watery, but still pretty solid mouthfeel.
Overall: This is my first wine barrel aged pale ale. It was done in true HF style and its a great beer. Unique and different!
