Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

2013 vintage. Release No. 1. Bottle No. 1367/1600.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, spice, yeast, and slight white wine aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour malt, honey, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but nothing very exciting for a barrel aged beer.

you know, i love the idea, and this whole barrel series from these guys is pretty splendid, but this is the weak link, if we have to call one out. the saison yeast is generic, the red wine character is only moderate, and the mouthfeel is lacking heavily for the style, minimal carbonation and not a significant body. tannic wine essence is weak, and the base saison isnt all that impressive, unlike the other barrel waxed beers from these guys. generic wheat malt and yeast make this forgettable, if still real tasty, like, its great, but ive had it before, show me something new ya know? brett might pop this off, or more time in the wine barrel, or something, but it seems thin and lacking to me on the whole, as much as i do like the beer. overall something pretty solid, but in this market it takes a little more to move me, especially in this style. the least impressive of their barrel series beers i have had, but still easily worth what they ask for a bottle, no doubt about that, im just being critical...
