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

750ml into a Duvel tulip, from Calton. Thanks!

Hazy, opaque ruby red with a one finger head. Pretty foamy head that sticks around for a few sips, then into a ring of foam

Unripe strawberries with vinous notes, and some sweet waffer malty backbone. A touch of earthy funk as well Similar to a white zinfandel but with a funky, beer twist.

Again, unripe strawberries and slight funk with vinous notes. Does not deviate from the nose much at all.

Ultra smooth and medium body. Not much carbonation at all.

Good, some what unique fruity notes with a solid wild ale profile. It's not ultra complex but I do have to say tasty. Glad I got to try it, thanks Calton!

Shared by myself during BRoss242’s send-off party before he moves! Will miss you man! Served from growler into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a deep red-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, funk, earth, and sour. The flavor was of sweet malt, cherry, funk, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. I was really looking forward to this one ever since I first heard about it going into barrels to age with the Brett. I have to say that it turned out quite well. The Brett definitely was the star of the show and made this known throughout the glass. Everyone who tried the growler at the tasting agreed as well. Definitely a well done brew that is worth trying for any fan of that pure Brett flavor.

Big thanks to Mike (mikeincharleston) for sending this my way. Shared at my buddy's engagement party. 750 ml bottle served in a mini tasting glass. Bottles June 1, 2012.

A: Hazy dark apricot color with an off white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a bubbly ring that leaves some splotchy lace.

S: Definite red wine up front. Dark grapes with some light funk and mild oak as well. The slightest bit of grassy hops are present, but faint.

T: Retrained red wine flavors with sour grape skin, funk and mild yeast. The finish is slightly malty and sweet.

M: Medium to light bodied with a nice carbonation level and a smooth, drying finish.

O: The red wine barrel definitely dominated the nose, but it was more restrained in the taste which allowed more of the other flavors to shine.

750 mL bottle poured into a pint glass (I know, I know) at cellar temperature.

L – Hazy medium amber color with a big 4-finger cream-colored pillowy head. Very good retention and really nice lacing. Lots of bubbles from what I can see.

S – There are the definite tell-tale aromas of funky Brettanomyces and acetic Lactobacillus/Acetobacter along with red wine, oak, grapes, and apples. Smells really, really nice.

T – An amalgam of red wine, funk, vinegar, and oak flavors. Tastes pretty good but not nearly as complex or layered as the aroma suggests.

F – Medium-bodied with good carbonation, a fizzy and tart mouthfeel, and a very dry and tart finish. Sour acidity lingers for a nice amount of time.

O – This is a pretty good sour beer. I was very impressed at the onset with the appearance and the aroma being great. Because of this, I was expecting more from the taste. The aroma had a lot going on that didn’t appear at all in the flavor. Still, this is a nice and drinkable beer. I have yet to have a Westbrook beer that I don’t like.

3.68/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a cloudy garnet-infused amber color; the inch of foam leaves some splashy lacing behind

Smell: Bready, with vague pear aromas, some barnyard funk; vinous oaky elements become dominant

Taste: The impact of the barrel overwhelm from the start adding a sherry-like character that, when combined with the bread, pear and yeasty phenols leads to a barnyard of funk; nuts and sherry return in the finish, which is very dry

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very unusual flavor profile; I'm not sure that the wine barrels really helped this beer but it is worth a try

Serving type: growler
