"Ale aged in wine barrels with cara cara oranges, meyer lemons and buddha’s hand citrons"

Fantastic. Extremely unique and elegant. I've never tasted a beer with such a clean, pronounced lemon flavor and it was really wonderful. Lots of unique citrus flavors from the unique blend of potent cara cara's, meyer lemon and buddah's hand citrons. Unfortunately the price point is such that frequent consumption isn't feasible. This was really great.

This pours a light straw gold with white golden foam. It’s clear with a chill haze. There's an underlying wet hay note that sneaks across the layers of citrusy and intense lemony notes. Flavor is pleasingly tart and lightly funky with a crisp lemony citrus finish. Citron & Buddhas hand? Yum!
