750ml waxed bottle, #197/200, into a 25cl Duvel tulip. Huge thanks to the guys at the brewery for hooking me up with this during my visit back in June. You guys rock!

A: Clear copper body; 1" head of fine off-white foam; good retention and lace. Excellent.

S: Bourbon, raw wood, lacto, and light funk. Really intense, quite enjoyable.

T: Lactic sourness up front with rich fruity tartness and big Bourbon thereafter. Vanilla, oak, and cherry on the finish. Increasingly deep and fruity as it warms. Very tasty.

M: Well carbonated, very creamy, and pretty full-bodied. Great.

O: I didn't think this was quite as well-balanced as the BA Farmhouse Pale Ale that I opened beforehand, but it was fascinating in its own right. The barrel really came through powerfully. I really hope I get to try more wild experiments from Oxbow.

Cheers!
