Casked Oak Aged Maggie's Farmhouse Ale, a once-off casked and oak aged version (duh) of Terrapin's Side Project #7, served upstairs at Monk's, Asheville, VA. Hurrah for vacations.

Appearance: Arrives in a pint glass, a hazy, dead-looking cloudy yellow with minimal lace and a fast fading head that leaves almost no ring of foam. This one almost looks like a juice of some kind, which I suppose comes with the casked territory, so I can't complain too much.

Aroma: High and estery are the two descriptors that come to mind, with lots of lemon notes, oranges, and a few other stray juicy notes. There's a faint, slight burn that comes from somewhere, a slew of soft wheat notes not far behind, and very faintly - waaay off in the distance - a hint of oak, though it's hardly perceptible and may actually just be my imagination. Shame.

Taste: Sweet, spicy, and fruity. Also, oaky, hurrah. Lots of cloves, faint cinnamon, and some spicy rye-like notes make up the spice contingent, and a slew of light fruits - bananas, oranges, lemons, fainter apple, pear, and apricot - make up the latter contingent. This one's almost like an imperial hefe in many ways, probably due to the temperature its being served at more than anything. A few other notes - honey, a few pale malts, a faint yeasty nuttiness, soft wheat, a woody oak-like quality, and a hint of vanilla - make this one a borderline 4.5, but it's tough for me to go up that high.

Mouthfeel: Dead and cask-like, unsurprisingly, but medium bodied, even and - though it's flat - it's also soft and a little oily, with a slightly chalky note in the finish.

Drinkability: This one has all the characteristics of an imperial hefeweizen, or even a regular hefeweizen. I'm not sure if that has more to do with the constituent parts of this beer or the temperature/serving style, but regardless, I enjoyed it. Quite the treat to try, and I hope Terrapin continues to barrel age some of its beers. Makes for an interesting addition to a great lineup.
