Pours golden amber and quite cloudy. The head is thick and frothy. It's a mass of white bubbles that bears a striking resemblance to the bubbles produced by bread yeast. The aroma has a good amount of tropical fruit and peach hoppiness. There's also some white wine and oak character imparted by the barrel. Lemon is present but pretty subdued. Taste is primarily sweet, fruity and oaky. There's an undercurrent of sourness but it's mild. It's an interesting mix of flavors. Ultimately, it's really not all that sweet and finishes pretty dry. Lots of fruit from the Mosaic hops. A bit more lemon. Fairly light with some body to it. Interesting beer. I enjoyed it more than I thought that I would. The sourness is quite light and the funk is also pretty subdued, but there's a very nice balance between fruit flavors and barrel.
