Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Instead of just complaining, there is no hopefully enough or a chance that some of you will take notice of the subtle vinous oak character, and funky old timey taste of this 10 month barrel-aged and dry-hopped Belgian-style pale ale.

30 IBU

All around, this was a very drinkable really good beer. A nice twist to a Belgian Pale Ale...the barrel tastes make this a easy beer to drink with a some really nice flavors. Big fan of Westbrook beers and this one, like other Westbrrok beers I have enjoyed, does not disappoint!

750ml served in a Duvel Tulip
Thanks to Hopswagger for this one.
Bottled June 2012

A - Super cloudy, tawny orange/brown color. 2 fingers of yellow head fizzle down forming a thin cap. Zero lacing.
Opened this one over the sink and I'm glad I did. Popped the top and out came gushing bubbles.

S - Big brett aroma, citrus and cherries, tart and sweet, tropical fruits, mango, pineapple but mostly papaya. I mean like you cut open a papaya and stuck your nose in it. There's a strong layer of wine soaked wood along. Some cherry bubblegum and mineral notes in the background along with some lactose sugar.

T - Tart fruit upfront, cherries, grapes, lemons, very seltzer like. Stings the tongue. Then it transitions into some sweet and fruity malts in the middle, orange citrus, some bubblegum, semi tart candy but quickly turning dry again. The wine barrel rolls in bringing in old vinous wood, dried tropical fruits, vinous basement funk, earthiness, dry with an refreshing finish.

M - Effervescent bubbles upfront, very dry in the middle but the dryness drops off a tad on the finish. The carbonation is overbearing the first pour but drops of as it sets. Medium wet body but full carbonation. Weird mouthfeel.

Awesome bretty aroma full of tropical and vinous fruit. The barrel was milder in the flavor but added plenty depth. The mouthfeel is weird and hard to explain. This bottle is almost 1.5 years old and I've never had it fresh so I can't tell if it's gotten better or worse but it's drinking great.

A - pours a hazy muddied light amber. Small white head that dissipated quickly, decent thick lacing hangs around the glass

S - lots of sour funkyness, smells great. Earthy subtleness

T - decent dry earthy bitter sour cherry flavors up front, the sourness lingers. Smells more tart/sour then it is

M - lighter bodied, slightly watery feeling. Good carbonation. Incredibly refreshing

O - tasty but not quite as fantastic as I expected

Big oak, sour cherries, and funk aromas.

Huge oakiness, slightly sweet, some dark fruits, and funk, Brett.

Very nice, love the aroma.
