Notes/Commercial Description:
English pub ale meets the French farmhouse tradition and American oak aging in this dry, drinkable farmhouse mild ale. Full-flavored, but brewed with enough restraint to be highly sessionable. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and naturally conditioned.

Appearance is a clear maroon ish purple with a half finger head that disappeared quickly.
Aroma is oak, wood, dark fruit.
taste is Wood. small coffee roast. Light toffee and dark fruit.some milk chocolate and coco powder as it warms
Mouthful is where this beer is severely lacking. Super thin. Overly carbonated. No lingering flavors. this one element hurts this otherwise decent beer.
Overall it's not something I'd want to try again.

A - What a nice looking pour. Dark brown, light tan head, pillowy but a quick fade to lacing.

S - Wood. Dust. Some odd yeast notes that don't recall beer elements. A strong scent that reminded me of wax. After the pour, which screamed quality, this was a real slap in the face. Not horrid, mind you, just an odor that failed to make me want to drink.

T - I struggle to find the appeal. There are things going on here - it is not that the beer is one-noted. But the dance of wood (from the oak I assume) with souring yeast offers little for me to grasp on to and relish.

M - The beer is quite drinkable, with no drying, booze, or burn to prevent it. A strange coating sensation recalls wax again, however. This lessens as the beer warms, but does not disappear.

O - Perhaps I miss the point, but this beer offers very little of interest. The flavors hit none of the points I recognize and value in my beer drinking. The sour elements were perhaps the only real interest, and they were quite muted. Out front was wood, but a little oak goes a long way. It wasn't a drain pour, but it was a disappointment.
