Got in a trade with cyde. 750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy deep ruby red color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, pear, apple, raisin, chocolate, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, toffee, oak, light vanilla, herbal, floral, pepper, clove, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance of malt, fruity/spicy yeast, and oak notes; and great strength. Taste of big caramel, pear, apple, raisin, chocolate, toast, brown bread, toffee, nuttiness, pepper, clove, oak, light vanilla, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, chocolate, toast, brown bread, toffee, oak, light vanilla, clove, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Outstanding robustness, complexity, and balance of malt, oak, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a great malt/yeast spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a slightly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is an incredible farmhouse mild ale! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of malt, yeast, and oak flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Very dark brown with a orange tint to it, cloudy with an off-white head that rose to just about one finger's length.

Smell: light citrus scent with notch of hops.

Taste: Bland, has a lemon, bready and a touch of barley feel. Personally I am not a fan. It's just so light, no potency.

Mouth: medium carbonation that comes off little light. Not really that sticky and snitch dry.

Overall: Not my cup of tea, speaking it's kinda what it tastes like. Needs some retweeking or just start a whole new beer to show everyone how farmhouse is supposed to taste. Salud!

A - Three fingers worth of mostly even lush whipped light khaki colored head with a bit of a rocky top... Rock solid retention... Much darker than expected... It's a deep rich dark brown... Though a wee bit of lit still leaks in around the edges... A few stray carbonation streaks and bubbles can be seen towards to the top of the glass... The proceed at a moderate to slightly quick pace...

S - Interesting aroma... Starts with a subtle sweetness... Caramel... Brown sugar... It is quickly complimented by a strong allusion of wood and oak... The competing aromas then continue to play off one another with the woody oakness coming out on top by the slightest of margins... Rather unique...

T - In terms of aroma, the oak won by a nose (pun intended)... However, in terms of palate, the oak wins by miles... The oak dominates at the beginning, in the middle and at the end with little else shining through... There are some light bready notes and perhaps just a kiss of brown sugar that lingers beneath the surface... The oak further intensifies on the finish and lingers...

M - On the lighter side of medium bodied... Lush... Sleek... Light carbonation... The finish has a touch of both chalkiness and dryness...

D - Loaded with flavor and character, especially given the modest 3.5% ABV... The oak isn't subtle by any means and dominates the beer... It's not a bad thing, but it seems to make this offering a bit one dimensional... A tasty and interesting interruption of the session beer genre, though I'm not sure it's something I would revisit with regularity...
