CID - Chaotic Insecure Delusions (named after a line in a Tool song)
The original 2nd Shift Barrel Aged Brett Beer. Put in barrel March of 2012, Steve used multiple strains of Brettanomyces as well as Saccharomyces. Bottled Summer 2014, only 100 cases were bottled!

L - Pours a hazy golden orange with a paper white head. The tight bubbles on the head are producing great lacing and this beer has great retention.

S - Oak barrel and white grapes collide to give you such a pleasant aroma. I couldn't sleuth the internet enough to fine what wine barrels it was aged in. A funky and tart aroma in the back along with some old barnyard notes.

T - So delicious. A sharp tartness hits at first and develops some citrus notes. A bit acidic with the oak and white grapes coming through. Ends with some funk peeking through along with a bit of sweetness.

F - Light bodied and high carbonation. Has a prickly carbonated bubbles that dance around. The finish is dry, but wet. It's like craving for more.

O - Probably the best 2nd Shift beer I've ever had. Everything about this beer is spot on and together. Well done!

Poured into a wine glass from a 750ml bottle.

Pours a slight hazy golden color. A nice bright white head props up that recedes quickly.

Aroma is very vinous. Upon inspection the brew smells like the inside of a oak wine barrel. Notes of white grapes. Buttery white wine notes. Woody oak notes. Notes of moldy old wood and funk. Old barnyard and corn husk notes. And yes these are all good things ;) Slight tartness and mild citrus notes can be perceived in the nose.

The flavor is delicious. Notes start of with sharp citric tartness that quickly evolves into a nice fruity and more vinous tartness. Slight acidity gets complimented and balanced out by wood, funk and nice notes of grain. Notes of grape mixed in with the funky wood. Quite a delicious and vinous brew. Nice slight sugary fruit sweetness is perceived along with the dry tartness of the finish. Perfect lighter buddy with a slightly lower carbonation that gives the brew a deceivingly oily finish as well. ABV is not perceived as such.

My favorite 2nd Shift brew thus far. Crider and his team really outdid themselves on this one. A delicious take on the style with amazing wood, funk and wine notes.
