32oz counter pressure filled growler from Barrel and Barley (Woodstock, GA). 10.00. Served in a Wild Heaven snifter.

Pours an opaque pale orange-hued mahogany with a two finger ecrue head. The froth settles to a fairly thin halo and a haze across the surface. Lace is spotty and spaced widley but present.

Aromas of toffee, pitted fruit, caramel, bready malt, vague earth and mild citrus rind.

Sugars and fruits abound in the taste. Caramel malts, cranberry, cereal grains, cherry skins, toffee, dried lemon peel, brown sugar and a healthy but balanced kick of booze. More of the sweetness that's typical for the style comes out as it warms. The fruit notes verge on seeming too bitter at times but blend well wth the sweetness and alcohol.

Creamy, full body with plenty of carbonation. Dry, semi- bitter fruit skins, citrus zest and caramel finish.

The addition of the dried Prussian lemons, tart cherries and cranberries make this a unique English barleywine. The more times I drink it, the more I'm liking it. I hope Wild Heaven decides to bottle this at some point because I think could evlove quite nicely, particularly if the bitterness settles down.
