Poured from a 750ml bottle into a glass

This was a bizzare beer. I'm just making a few notes after the fact because I have one to age as well. The beer had an aroma of candied apple and sweet caramel, along with an earthy acetone. Unfortunately, the acetone flavor was even more potent on the palate than the nose. I think this was an effect of the chardonnay barrel, because it seemed somewhat vinous. Light Chardonnay and oak flavors as well as caramel apple. The acetone pretty much ruined the beer for me, though people who tried it were very divided. Some people thought it was amazing and some found it gag-worthy (None of these people were BAs, it might be worth noting... they were equally astounded by the bottle of Stone Espresso IRS I also had.) I ended up only having a few sips. Hopefully the nail polish flavors dissipate with some age. If this ages gracefully, it could be a unique, delicious beer. If not, it could be even more of a monster than it is now. I will try again in about 18 months.

Is this meant to age? Waxed BPA?

A - Pours golden amber in color with an off white head. Everything seems normal.

S - Fruity sweetness with a dry wine character. Sour apple? Candied apple?

T - A little tart to start off that transforms into caramel and oak with a white grape finish.

M - Light bodied and high carbonation. Really lets you swish the flavors around to taste them.

O - Not one I'd want to seek out again, but it holds up to other sour/tart beers, IMO. Being 3F, people must have been expecting a hop bomb or something. I enjoyed it.

This poured out as a golden colored brew with a good sized white head on top. The lacing and retention of this beer were good. The smell of this reminded me of a Sharpie Magic Marker. It smelled acidic and wooden, very pungent on the nose. The taste was also pretty harsh with the French oak and souring agents in there... I can't say I want to ever have this one again. The mouthfeel is pretty basic, nice carbonation that's about all. Overall it's not a great beer at all. This one took me a while to drink because of the flavors it had. It was fun to try At aleast
