Huge thanks to Tom10101 for picking up and sending out this huge want.
A: Copper yellow haze topped with 3 fingers of white foam and settles down to a single layer across the glass. Streams of carbonation race to the top, suggesting a snappy carbonation.
S: Lemony dank basement with muskiness, yeasts and wheatiness topped with some minerals. Finish is a little acid and as it warms some notes of under ripe banana.
T: Lemony acidity with sourness of grape skins and brett funk. Wheaty notes with medical herbal notes and chalky minerals.
M: Light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation combined with light crisp tartness.
O: A refreshing and tangy drink grounded with funkiness and wheat. Light and refreshing it holds nothing back in the tart and sour department and never plays down to a crowd looking for something sweet. Bold and assertive.

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!
