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.
