Appearance is a golden orange with little carbonation.
aroma is sweet, apples and pears. Very oaky.
taste is sweet and tart with a huge buttery finish.
This has to be aged in chardonnay barrels.
mouthfeel is medium and just a very buttery rich finish.
Lots of brown butter and oak.
the flavors are a little off but this buttery finish is like nothing I've ever tasted.
Can't wait to get a carbonated bottle. (409 characters)

Best beer made in Alabama by miles! Perfect level of sour to balance out the nice funk donated by all the bugs in the barrel. (126 characters)

The beer comes in a hazy light orange.

The aroma is very sour of lemons, almost like a Belgian gueuze. Apricots, fruits. Lots of horseblanket and hay funk.

The flavor follows as that strong tartness digs to the back of your cheeks. Lots of lemon, then a touch of apricot and stone fruit, pluot. A touch of apple vinegar. Some wet hay and funk. A great barrel drying in the back.

A great American sour. A fantastic beer! (423 characters)
