Notes/Commercial Description:
E is definitely not a Belgian IPA - it's a funky version of Edward (american pale ale) - fermented with brettanomyces, dry hopped with galaxy, and aged on stainless for four months. Basically, we refer to it as a farmhouse pale ale - a cross between a saison and an american pale.

2012 Release: Aged in Mimosa barrels.
2014 Release: Aged in wine barrels with resident yeast and microfloa for 1.5 years.

750ml 2014 bottle into a teku glass

dark murky golden color with a finger and half foamy head. smell of farmhouse yeast... you can definitely tell this was aged in wine barrels. funky funky funky! taste starts out with a lot of brett and then progresses into that funky farmhouse taste and ends with a slight bitterness. wine barrel is again apparent. i think this would just get better with more age. real complex and interesting. body is much lighter than i was expecting and i love it. carbonation is pretty high.

over interesting and great! thanks tommy.
