Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at GRG1313’s tasting.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with fruit, wood, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

thanks Michael

the beer pours a cloudy amber-orange with an inch of white head that settles to a thin blanketing. the nose is a strange mix of barrels, slightly spicy, and funky sour. it drinks a bit more refined with a bit of spice/zest, funky, a bit boozy, and sour. it has a bit more sweetness than a bone dry sour, medium-ish body, good carb, good aftertaste and interesting interplay between barrels. this beer was worth treading for, very delicious and complex.
